    some where around here I have the instructions for emu and ostrich eggs.. yes it takes longer, if I remember right, emu is abou 46 days ?? you batter check that out, though..

    I would guess you could do two or three emu..

    I would not go out and spend a lot of money on eggs, .. Not until you get a lot more information..
