This is a few
of my own ostriches that I have take in the past.
I bought six chicks (three males and three females). One of my males died before I even got them home. It had an impaction and could not stand the operation.
When I got my birds in a growing mood I started taking pictures of them. Some of these pictures are of the chicks that I bought and others are of young chick that I hatched (or had hatched).
Most of the pictures are taken in my back yard with me and my grandkids.
I hope you enjoy viewing these pictures as much as I did making them possible.
