One view: First of all you need to keep him safe from predators until he's big enough to fend for himself. Give him some scratch feed, and even some laying hen feed, veggies, table scraps whatever you find that he will eat. Give him plenty of attention or he might get aggresive towords you. I let mine freerange and really don't feed them anything more than some scratch and fresh water every day. They seem to be quite happy and wiegh about 15 pounds apiece.
