It is weigh-in day for the emu eggs. They are almost exactly halfway through their incubation process and on target for proper weight loss. On Day 28 they should have lost 7.5% +/- 1.2%. That puts all three eggs in the correct range! I am getting quite excited. I am part of a emu egg hatch-along on Backyard Chickens and one of our teammates lost one today that pipped on the wrong end. I am used to dealing with tiny chicks that don’t hatch but I am not so sure about seeing a baby emu that didn’t make it. Maybe I’ll get some help from beginner’s luck. Stay tuned! Here’s today’s stats.
Egg Starting Weight Current Weight Amount Lost Percentage
A 618.02 grams 578.33 grams 39.69 grams 6.4%
B 532.97 grams 496.12 grams 36.85 grams 6.9%
C 669.05 grams 623.69 grams 45.36 grams 6.8%
