i have hatched from button quail up to goose so far but not tried an emu egg. A friend of mine breeds Rheas but they are very hard to rear so i never fancied trying.

I've seen literally hundreds of these in South Africa. In the Eastern Cape you can spot ostrich nests complete with eggs from the roadside.

I've also seen emu eggs for sale and was pretty surprised how commonly they are seen for sale in the UK.

But... They can be an aggresive species and that would put me off. I assume most are reared for meat here in the UK?

I have 3 dozen jumbo quail eggs in the post as I type. I keep thinking about getting some Californian quail eggs as I think the adults are beautiful. Not as exciting as an emu though! lol
