10 Baby Ostriches born

This weekend, we saw 10 new baby ostriches born.  8 Have survived and are doing really well.

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 humans!
