    Here's one of the Emu Eggs.

    And here's my home made incubator. Inside is a light bulb and some eggs, so nothing special. It's insulated with bubble wrap. Very pricey and intricate, huh?[​IMG]

    runsw/scissors, thanks so much for the lovely offer of eggs, I love banties, but I think I have plenty for my first try and it's probably too late for shipping. 24 shipped eggs arrived this afternoon, box was crushed on one side but the contents were intact if more than a bit shaken up. My local lady thinks she'll have 6 for me on Sat too. This incubator holds 40 eggs, but no point overloading it first time out. Oh wait, that's crazy talk around here.

    Good luck with the emu eggs, are they due new years? If they are they should be rocking now.
    I hatched two in a home made incubator, worked like a charm.

    Quote:Linda this makes me just want to cry! I feel so bad that you get this great new place and this is how the Welcoming Commitee treats you. It's just so unfair and my heart breaks for you and your birds.


    Have no fear. I refuse to damage a potenial chickie of any kind to win a contest. That would be more like losing in my book. I hope all of these hatch. Just stating a fact about my luck as usual.

    Quote:Superchemicalgirl..... I think I can hear your brain whirring all the way down here in Florida.... you just leave those cooking implements in the cupboard and stick to the incubators..... [​IMG]

    gryeyes & Mahonri: That's horrible! I hope you get to keep your chickens!! [​IMG]

    RBF: Super cool to see you and AK Michelle on the map, a bit sad you're all alone. I humbly offer to stay with one of you during the holidays, I've never been to AK or Australia. [​IMG]

    Sumatra503: I really thought all of you were kidding about hatching EMUS!!! How long does it take to incubate??? [​IMG]
