    Hey all, I've incubated ducks and chickens before, but never anything like this. I figured I'd hatch a dinosaur while they were still in season. Do you guys have any advice on what works best incubating emus? Any insight is greatly appreciated!

    I have mine in a regular cooler, With a heating pad on the bottom and then Filled with water bottles and Cookie cooling racks over those, Fan is at top along with the eggs, This is working so far. I have Emu's peeping in their shell at the moment. :) (this was the only way for me to do mine, Short notice, No availability of large Incubators, Etc. I am sure there are better ways, this is just what is working for me. :) )
