Thanks for the info about emu incubating..I have no trouble hatching chicks and Geese..but this is my first try with emus...the one question that I do have is how many times a day should they be turned..with my others it's been twice a day...emus not sure...
I tried one once and the smell was more than enough to tell me that the egg was no longer viable. Good luck, baby emu are super cute!
Quote:yup....that's what i'm doing. i so want these lil guys to hatch!
my husband so doesn't LOL
oh Wow. I can't wait to see these critters! Keep us posted
if the legs spread out take a dish towel and wrap the towel around the body and the legs to keep them in tight for 12 to 24 hrs
I have been turning mine night and day 4 , 5 or six time daily. I have been waking up at during the night to turn them, but I think I probably could wait to morning. Do birds turn their eggs in the middle of the night? I've hatched quail, chicks and ducks by hand turning so I thought Emus would be a hoot! I am on day 21, not quite half way yet. Thanks for the info everyone
when i turn my by hand i did it 3 times a day my uncle turn 4 times a day
We have 4 emu eggs in the bator and getting ready to set 4 more. The 1st 4 been in there going on 2 weeks. I have excess to a ultra sound machine, thats how Im going to candle them, when I find any that are not good, Im going to blow the egg out and save the shell. The sooner I find it bad, the better it is to blow the egg out.............best of luck on your emu eggies...........
Thanks for the info..I guess I will turn them ( the emu eggs) 4 times a day...my neighbor gave me the eggs, she has 2 mated pairs and had a baby last year and he or she is REALLY CUTE...and very friendly.
so we will see what happens..It'll be pretty cool if they hatch..I had a male when we lived in Calif and he was also very friendly..I only have 52 more days....UGH
