    Anybody know of emu breeders in Georgia? We live NE of Atlanta, and are looking for breeders within 2-3 hours.
    Also interested in the cost of eggs across the country. And how difficult are they to hatch in a 'bator?

    Thanks

    Hi, I have access to three emus. Two females and a male, about 2 months old. Asking $500 for all three and will deliver within 30 miles, $1/mile after that. Thanks, Jeff

    I know of a little place south of Atlanta called Baker's Emu Nest. Real nice folks, they sell mostly chicks, not sure if they have any for sale right now.

    I've got three Emu's in Conyers, GA just hitting maturity. We're eagerly looking forward to breeding season this spring and will have a few for sale then. I can post a note to this group when they come along.

    There is a breeder in Alabama, out by Talladega, who I have purchased from in the past. He's got great, healthy birds. However, you're not likely to find chicks or eggs in the fall. They breed when it gets warm and light again.

    Thank you. So I need to wait until spring, I was looking to get one about 6mos old. I have peacocks that I have been raising and they are very fragile until 6 mos. so was hoping to avoid the fragile part with any other bird. But I will gladly buy a baby if that is what I can get. I just love birds. Please playback in spring and let me k is if you have any for sale.

    So apparently I'm wrong. The EMU start breeding now, as I learned when my boy tried to hump me while I was working on a project in the field this weekend. The are laying now through the rest of winter, so you'll start to see hatched chicks in the spring.
