Feeding Directions
  • Emus - Feed 5M32 to newly hatched emus until birds reach adult body weight.  Feed free-choice or limit-feed to 75% of free-choice consumption depending on facilities and accessibility of chicks to facility.
  • Ostriches - Feed 5M32 free-choice to newly hatched ostrich chicks until approximately 90 days of age or until they reach a body weight of 70 lb., whichever comes first.
  • Grit - Use of grit may help in decreasing the incidence of impactions by strengthening the gizzard.  Granite grit should be used.  Do not use limestone as a source of grit.  Grit can be made available to the birds as soon as they are hatched.  Mix grit in with the feed (1.5% by weight, example: for every 98 grams of feed, mix in 2 grams of grit).  Change the grit size as the animals grow.
    • General recommendation for grit use:
      • Hatch to 3 weeks - 2/16" grit (starter size)
      • 4 to 7 weeks - 3/16" to 4/16" length, 2/16" width grit (grower size)
      • 8 to 16 weeks - 6/16" to 8/16" length, 4/16" width (developer size)
      • 16 weeks on - 10/16" to 14/16" length, 6/16" width (turkey size)
