    Our 2 Emu eggs are due to hatch sometime between Feb 25 and March 4th. They are way to dark to candle, but I believe both are developing judging by their "feel".

    So, about 17 to 10 days left and we'll know for sure. [​IMG]

    I have 3 eggs due just a couple days before yours. I did a float test with them yesterday and two of them moved. So it might be worth trying.

    I'm pretty sure they are both developing, because I felt both of them move as I turned them tonight. Now, hoping for a good hatch! [​IMG]
