We want this forum to be a place where everyone can feel comfortable and be welcome. We want this to be a place for people to ask questions and get answers regarding emu meat and emu by-products like the oil.

 We also run a Yahoo group for emu farmers to discuss husbandry issues.  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/emufarm 

 We like to think that everyone knows the proper way to act on a public message board, but just in case we will give a few pointers for our posters to go by.

1. Absolutely no personal attacks will be tolerated.

2. The world would be a very dull place if everyone agreed with everyone else, but when you disagree here, please give your differing opinion with respect. Rude or abusive posts will be deleted.

3. If you feel that you can not express your differing opinion without being rude or hurtful things, then please save me some time by using the SOB rule: Scroll on By. 4. Please invite your friends to join us and if possible, provide a link to our site on your personal web page. (We would really appreciate it!)

Re: Re: help! how do I store fresh emu eggs

Hi Myra -
Thank you for the tip on salt (or sugar) ... I didn't know that. When we tried scrambling our birds' egg (this was from its first laying season, if that makes any difference), we weren't sure what to expect. The eggs took a very long time to scramble and the consistency was not that of a scrambled egg, but almost like cottage cheese. We didn't care much for it, mostly because it didn't have any flavor. The french toast, on the other hand, was unbelievable! If it wasn't that particular egg that didn't scramble well, I guess it's up to individual taste.

The couple we bought our birds from suggested the ice tray for frozen eggs, but we ended up eating it before we could really freeze any.

This is why I love this website -- to gain from the experiences of other emu owners. We had almost no information at all available when we first got our birds. Thank you thank you!
