Request for genetics advice

Speaking of genetics,

My wife & I are buying Emus to raise for market. Is there anyone on the ASA
list that could give us casual advice in regards to breeding strategies? It
would help me to bounce ideas off of someone who knows what they're talking
(er, typing) to some degree.

Not that I expect specific advice on Emus (there's not much available--not
like cows & pigs), but agricultural rules of thumb would be helpful.

As a probabilist, I'm familar with some of the mathematical aspects of
genetics, but have little detailed knowledge (like what really happens).
