Corn is a delicious and healthy treat that emus can eat. Corn, either cracked or whole kernel, is a common alternative foodstuff when raising birds, including emus, so it never hurts to have some on hand.
To Increase their Body Weight: If your emus look underweight, you may be giving them too many proteins and few carbohydrates. They could also be sick.
To Keep Your Emus Busy: If you emus look bored, you can give them treats such as maize to keep them active.
To Help Your Birds Stay Warm in the Winter: Digesting corn can help emus and other birds to stay warm at night during the winter.
Laying Emus Need Grains: When your birds are laying eggs, they need a lot of grains for energy to produce and lay eggs.
