Enjoying an 88% hatch rate on our first setting...!!!
Are those emu chicks?
yes, they are part of our weekend hatch
I don't have any chicks right now
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?
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.

Here are my two so far out of five eggs. I am new to emus, very excited for these babies. More pics when I get back home.

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:
