    Hi

    The emu cracked a hole in the shell this morning! It should hatch later today at around midnight or tomorrow morning! Sooooooo excited! Thank You sooooo much to everyone for the help and tips for hatching emus! What should I start feeding it? Meal worms, vegetables, etc... When should I start feeding the emu chick starter? I have attached a picture of the emu hatching.

    Thank You for all your help!

    If you feed it treats first it likely won't eat its regular feed in my opinion. I don't have Emus. ;) I'm just speaking from every other perspective bird I've raised. :)
