Hello everyone, happy St. Patty's Day. Most of all welcome to spring!! Almost spring...here in Al. we're having warm days and cool nights.
Now about the emu, I've had a pair for 3 years. Every time the eggs hatch, the male kills the babies. What do I do? He had one that had hatched out and we took it from him today, I have it in a box with a heat lamp. I've read different links and they all talk about incubating. My incubator is for chickens, not large enough for emu eggs. Right now the baby is sitting not standing... do I need to do something to make him stand? My son gave me the emu for my birthday one year....I'm not into killing for oil or meat.... I simply like them, as well as my guineas, chickens, ducks, turkeys, pecock and llama. I like babies and watching them grow.....If you have any info, please pass it alone. I don't want to lose this little fellow.
