    Can emu eggs fit in Brinsea Ova-Easy 190 Advance Series II Cabinet Incubator?

    I have read that the minimum diameter of emu egg is 3.5"? Is that right?

    I guess yes, the emu eggs fitted in my incubator which has the same tray size as yours, so i guess rhea eggs should fit. i think they are in the same size as emu eggs or even smaller.

    Hi, I was also thinking of getting the 580 for Rhea eggs, did you actually get one and if so was it serviceable for rheas

    Thanks for any advice

    That's right, so 18 will be the total for the 190 advance.
