In India there are no specific feed prepared for Emus. However one can start with regular poultry feeds with addition of greens. Alfalfa leaves, Lucerne, stylo, Desmanthus. Chopped green vegetables, cauliflower leaves, fruits like grapes, watermelon. Chicks and adult birds can be given crumble feed. You can also add Soya crumbles for additional protein.
