Please Note--Ostrich are wild birds and need to be respected for their large size as adults and need an area to run. They are not pets and should never be put in a smaller area among other birds or animals. The large adult males can be very dangerous when protecting their eggs and hens.
Please do read all you can on raising the ostrich as this is not an easy task. Quality dependable incubation equipment with professional dedication is required to be successful in hatching and raising the ostrich chicks. And very strong fencing and shelter must be provided for the older chicks and adults for their safety and yours.
