How Much can an Emu Eat?

A Blinking lot is all I can say. This is a 14" [355mm] diameter plate that he gets in the morning and at night. Glad the Vege garden is producing lots of greens and are well eaten up.
Not to forget the Mealworms bugs and Herbivore pellets he also gets.
Sadly the smaller of the 2 emu chicks had to be put to sleep. She came in with a wobbly leg and X'Rays showed a malformed knee joint and being such a large bird, when at adult stage, she would not have been able to use it.
Emu is alone now but is Happy and content.
