Does anybody know anything about Emu's? My daughter told me she can get me some Emu eggs and knew I would research it before I gave an answer so here I am. I need to now if I really want to do this. What do they eat? Are they like chickens and eat on their own or have to be fed? What is their worth as selling eggs or the Emu. Just for starters. UPDATE! The little I found out last night has changed my mind. These big birds can really hurt you and our run you too. The eggs take 8 weeks to hatch and they are dark green. The 2 month hatch time was another thing that turned me away. The part where they have very powerful legs and can cut you wide open with their reet is the number one thing tht turned me away. But still if anyone nows anything go right ahead and educate those others that are still interested. Who knows, I may just sell the eggs.
