    Interesting. I always remove the broken shells, even from the Broodies, but when using the incubator I also remove chick that completely detached from thier shells as soon as I have 2, as each one gets to over 10 mins old. I have some peeping in the bator right now.

    I forget who I'm quote but
    1 I find it interesting that you can do emu eggs ove in America. You need a zoo permit which is a huge pain to be able to hatch them here in aust, although we have millions of wild ones.


    On older eggs.
    Last hatch I threw in a set of 12 eggs that had been collect over s period ov at least 12 days, then stored in fridge for 3 weeks, and they all hatched. The ones I lost in that set were all less than 7 days old at set.

    Alrighty then I am trying something new just came across it. It is a vitamin spray that goes on the eggs right before you put them in and once more before hatch. It is supposed to increase hatch on shipped eggs too. Wish me luck. It has gotten good reviews so far. I am setting bcm, fwm, ccl, welbar, Isbar, cochin, fly tie genetic hackle barred rocks and lbcm I can set up to 8 dz after shipping to others who ordered some
