Hello everyone. I have my first question that I just had to ask, which made me finally set up an account after lurking here forever When I finally get my acreage and I'm ready to start my emus, I'd like to go the egg incubating route. I am open to young chicks as well. My question is, how do you avoid getting related pairs when you buy eggs or chicks? I'd love to get maybe 8 to start and keep a trio, but I really don't want to inbreed. How is this usually handled? Do I buy 1 egg from 8 different farms?
