Some family farms raise ostriches. Ostriches are often raised for their meat which tastes and looks a lot like beef. Ostrich oil is also an ingredient in some hand creams.
|See if you can find ostrich meat in the grocery store the next time you are there! Do you have any creams around your house with ostrich oil?|
|A female ostrich can lay twenty-five to fifty eggs in a season, from March until September.|
|When the chicks are born they are only ten inches tall and weigh just two pounds.|
A baby ostrich will grow ten to twelve inches every month for the first six months of its life. Soon it will tower way above you, the farmer!
