Ostrich Farm

7 Dec

The hills may be alive, but it’s not with the sound of music…

these hills are alive with ostriches!

We have driven by the ostrich farm many times before, but for some reason this time we felt inclined to stop and see what all the hub-bub was about. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. From the looks of the rinky-dink shack you pull up to, I was a little leery as to what we were getting ourselves into. Well as the saying goes, don’t judge an ostrich farm by it’s souvenir shop lol!

We purchased two bowls of ostrich food and headed out to feed the freakishly oversized birds also known as ostriches.  I have to admit I was slightly terrified that they were going to bite my hand off… or my head.

The birds turned out to be really cool, in a creepy  velociraptor kind of way. Ha Ha. They were pretty entertaining when you took a minute to watch them interact. Finnley wasn’t to impressed with them though. She would rather eat the food pellets herself than watch us feed them to the ostriches.

We were having a swell time until an air born ostrich feather flew into my mouth…that was my cue to leave!

We decided to hitch a ride home on some ostriches 🙂

    Looks like a lot of fun but I’m with you…the feather thing, not so much 🙂
