So, one of my eggs has hatched, and it's three, going on four days old now! I couldn't find any ratite starter, but others who raise the chicks say they use chick starter and layer feed with good success, but it must be non medicated.. So, other emu people on here, what is best? I have Dumor Organic Chick Starter, Dumor Layer Crumbles, and Purina Non-Medicated chick starter and grower. Which should I feed, and should I mix them? Note that I don't know if the layer feed is medicated or not.
