I picked up 4 emu eggs at the market today, and I have some questions. The farmer was not there for me to speak with, so I'm trying to make some guesses. Do emus lay eggs without a male present? ie, can I assume that these eggs are fertile? For how long can emu eggs be viable after being laid? The eggs arrived today, but they had 100 of them, so they were probably laid over a period of time. I have no idea how many emu the farmer has. Lastly, how hard is it to find home for emu chicks? I can't keep them, but I think it would be fun to hatch them and brood them for a few weeks. I don't want to hatch them if I'll end up getting stuck with them. I've been reading up on hatching practices, but I would love any links or pointers you experts may have. Thanks!
