    Hi, I am hatching emu eggs and have a lg incubator right now. I dont even know if the bator will hold the huge eggs and a though occured to me. Could you hatch an egg using a brinsea eco-glow brooder heater to hatch the eggs. Emu eggs need a lot of air flow and the openess would do that, also the brooder is made to heat that area perfectly. It would reanact the emus native habitat almost perfectly. So do you think it would work? Is the brinsea eco-glow even big enough?
