    A few months ago I hatched a chicken with half of the shell missing to watch the embryo grow, and became the first person to successfully hatch it. Now my goals are set to a new level. I plan on doing the same thing, but this time an emu egg. Emu eggs are the second biggest egg in the world, and this is the craziest thing I have done yet. I should be getting the egg in a week or two and these next 50 days should be fun.

    Hmm, hope it works. I hear Emu eggs can be expensive. Do you have anyone to raise it if you are successful? If not, how about --->me<---:)
