Hello my emu hatched 24 hours ago and was drinking water only like 2 sips and it won’t eat it’s food I’ve tried diced carrots, cucumbers, and lettuce plus non medicated chicken feed. I’m pretty sure that’s normal since it just hatched but it’s been acting weird where it faints every 5-20 seconds. I’m not sure if it’s normal I’ll follow up tommorow.

They are really wobbly and unsteady on their feet for the first couple days. They also often don't eat or drink for three or four days after hatching. And, they are pretty tired from hatching, so they stop and sleep a lot. If that's the type of thing you're seeing, it's totally normal :)
