    mine do unless she doesn't like them disappearing , then she will start a new spot but they all are different I have 4 girls ,I have one that likes to lay in the shelter and the others have a spot they like but normally they keep the same spot on my farm .however when my emu start laying there is a space from the first and the second or third sometimes it is up to 3 weeks depending on the weather. good luck

    Second egg was laid yesterday. 522g. Still not as large as some of yours. Hoping they get larger. Has anybody had smaller eggs hatch?[​IMG]

    got 2 more eggs today that makes 13 eggs since November, I got to watch Elmo lay another one today , I am still just amazed every time I watch her , she is so careful and puts her body in an upright position while gently placing the egg on the ground . so graceful I just never get tired of watching. she seamed to be straining more this time so I was worried and decided to go over and see if she was OK , when I got over there she placed it on the ground and looked at me as if to say see what I did for you .[​IMG]
