    Nice chicks! Your setup looks a lot like mine :)
    I wish I had some cute little guys to show off right now! My first batch is only on day thirty, so I'll just have to admire yours for now :)
    88% is impressive what type of incubator are you using?
     
  6. all I can tell you about my incubators is they were constructed in Europe and measure only in Celsius They do not have a name or brand or any type of model ID on the units. They were purchased in Florida.[​IMG]

    Exercise is VITAL for the long-term health of your babes. Absolutely as soon as you can, give them more and more space to run about in.

    In the wild (I am Resident Wild-Emu Guy), I have seen a chick an hour old cover a half a mile before dark. And in their first week, they may travel four miles a day through breast-high wet foliage.

    This is Dad Eric and Chick Uno in my backyard. I took the fence down years ago, so his family members can come and go:
