    I just bought 5 eggs from Carole at Lovedpet.com. They should be arriving by Saturday at my Post Office. I cannot wait LOL Anyone else want to join in the hatch-a-long with me? Gonna turn on my Retipro 6000 on Saturday. I am so excited, I hope I get some to hatch. This year I had to put my little female Emu chick down cause it broke it's ankle and one of my dogs to sleep due to cancer - I really need a couple or so chicks to hatch! [​IMG]

    Hope you are luckier this time, I was very unlucky last winter too, bought 5 eggs in post...some cracked and most of my Emu eggs of 35 were contaminated and lost, just had 6 hatched, and kept Cindy to be company to last years last girl Dusty..
    but at least I have a souvenir from my girl Rosie.

    Ok my 5 eggs arrived and should go into my incubator tomorrow night. I will post weights then. My Reptipro 6000 is set for 99 degrees, which makes it about 97 top shelf and 96 bottom shelf.

    I'm still debating on hatching out more this year.. I asked my husband what he thought and his reply was pretty much "whatever you want to do"... *sighs*
