On our family vacation we stopped in Arizona at one of the largest ostrich farms in the United States. It was really very interesting and quite entertaining as well. There must have been a thousand or more birds on their ranch.
They really do serve ostrich eggs in the restaurant and to my surprise they’re actually very good. One egg costs about fifteen dollars and is equal to about twenty four chicken eggs. An ostrich egg omelet definitely could feed the neighborhood.
I just had to visit the gift shop before we left. I’d had my eye on a true ostrich feather duster since we arrived and boy do these things really work. There isn’t a spec of dust left on my computer screen. A few other items they sell are hollowed out eggs, colored eggs, fresh eggs, t-shirts, caps and ostrich jerkey.
It’s a lot of fun for the kids if you’re ever out that way. The ranch isn’t that far off Hwy Ten and it only costs about two dollars, plus they give you a huge cup of food and let you feed the birds.
