Abnormal Emu Eggs
Occasionally an abnormal egg will pop up (or out). An occasional abnormal egg is not something to worry about, especially in first year layers, but if the problem persists, there is probably a nutrition problem. For more information on this, we recommend Marie Minnaar's The Emu Farmer's Handbook, Vol. 1 & 2.
Below are some examples of abnormal eggs.
Abnormal eggs do not hatch well, if they are fertile. For that reason we blow them out and sell them to egg artists or egg collectors who are looking for something a bit unusual.
