Good news - I just got a beautiful emu egg from a friend.


Bad news - It's been sitting on his back porch for a couple weeks (he thinks). We're in Iowa but temps have been above freezing so I don't think that's a problem. However, he hasn't turned it or anything, it's just been sitting there.


More bad news - My one and only bator is full of 38 eggs that I just started Friday.

Good news - I'm pretty sure I know where I can borrow (or if worse comes to worse steal) one. I've waited too long for this egg to let a little thing like no bator stop me.

The dilema - I'm afraid with the no turning, age, etc. it's probably not good anymore. Do I just go ahead and go for it and keep my fingers crossed?????


Here is a picture of it with one of my EE eggs

That is one cool looking egg. Are you planning on keeping the emu if it hatches?

I'd say go for it....BUT...you realize they are virtually un-candle-able...AND if it is rotten and explodes...that is gonna be ONE BBBADDDDD egg...right?

Quote:I had a guinea egg explode last year , and that by far, has got to be the worst thing ive ever smelled in my entire life. If i remember right Emu eggs take around 50 days to hatch?
