Hi everyone,
I bought a few rhea eggs the other day, and I'm about to start incubating. I've incubated other fowl before, but never ratites. I've found several online sources, as well as a book on raising emus. I'm just curious if there is any advice from people who have incubated ratite eggs in the past as to cautions or suggestions. I'm using artificial incubation, as these are my first rheas. :)

Rhea's are the easiest to hatch of the Ratites. Temp needs to stay 96/97 degrees F, and humidity around 50-55%. They hatch around 35 days. Turn at least 3 times a day.
