    Correction! 5 out of 5 have hatched.

    I wish I could upload some pics but I can't get the linking thing done right.

    Sorry.

    awesome! Would love to see photos! So what were your parameters for this successfull hatch? Incubator, hand turn or auto turn? temp? humidity level?

    I have 3 in my GQF right now and will be setting 4 more Emu eggs this Wednesday. so if I have a successful hatch, I could be looking at 7 emu chicks the 2nd week of March
