    I know this is a chicken forum, and I'm getting some of those this spring, so I'll have lots of questions about them too, but I also have been looking into emus and emu eggs. Does anyone have them? If so, where did you get them? Can I buy fertilized eggs or babies? Has anyone hatched emu eggs? I'd appreciate any emu thoughts, and I'll bombard you guys with my chicken questions a little later on!

    There was one hatch posted here with 1 emu egg.

    There is also someone now trying to hatch 1 emu egg.

    Please use the search feature and you should be able to find it with photos.
