If i was to feed my emus a mixture of barley, corn and alfalfa would they get the protein the need?
Mine love dog food too. I am trying to get them to eat a mixture similar to yours and I add a little dog food. They will only pick out the dog food to eat and if they get anything else they spit it out. The ppl I got them from only fed them dog food.Mine didn't like the FRM Emu pellets..... they were too tempted with all the other feed the animals get so I started feeding them my own mix. As babies they still get chick starter and greens, but as adults they get Sweet feed, horse pellets, dog food or catfish pellets, bird seed, layer crumble and sometimes some flock rasier or gamebird diet.... they also like various greens... but they LOVE dog food and learned how to steal it from the auto feeders or the dogs bowls....
