Being able to adapt to many types of climates such as hot, cold, humid, dry, ostriches appear in many different countries in the world. Some countries can be mentioned as Thailand, China, Malaysia. Especially in European and American countries, ostrich farming is thriving. Currently, there are also many farms that choose ostriches as a springboard to improve their economy. To grasp the technique of raising ostriches to get the most profit is not so simple. The following article shares the basic steps for your reference.The ostrich is the largest living bird in the world. The average male is about 2.4 meters tall and can weigh more than 100 kg. But the hens/hens are slightly smaller than the males.
Ostriches cannot fly. Their large body size but reduced wind size makes them unable to fly. In general, ostriches have long necks, long bare legs, and two toes. Neck and thigh muscles are well developed and not deformed.
Economic value of ostrich
Ostrich meat
Ostrich meat is beneficial for health because it is low in fat and bad cholesterol when compared to chicken and beef. On average, an adult weighing 100kg after slaughter will yield about 60kg of meat, of which 21% is good meat and 14% is shredded meat. Male meat production will be about 1.5% higher than female.
Ostrich eggs
The age of maturation of ostriches is relatively early, a year can lay 40-60 eggs, each weighing 1.2-1.5kg, 25 times bigger than other poultry.
In this giant egg contains a lot of iron, folic acid is good for pregnant women and the development of the fetus. Ostrich eggs are also good for short children, rickets, people with cardiovascular disease …
Breeding criteria
In order to get healthy, fast growing baby ostriches, it is first necessary to choose a male ostrich with an upright posture, a neck that is not curved, a jet black color, a well-proportioned body, agile, or hyperactive.

Techniques of breeding ostriches
In the production and development of the Ostrich farming model, the breeding stage is very important because it directly affects the egg quality and the quality of the seed.
Ostriches usually give birth from December of the previous year to August of the following year, the time for laying and molting is about 4 months. Ostrich usually lays from about 14h-19h, so during this time, people must be arranged to collect eggs, avoid ostrich parents to break eggs, or avoid eggs getting wet to damage eggs or affect hatching rate. .
Female ostriches usually give birth in batches. They lay 8-10 fruits in a row and then rest for about 10 days before laying again. Sometimes female ostriches interrupt egg laying for 1-2 months.
To ensure a place to eat and stay for ostriches to breed, the cage must have sunshine. Good drainage, high ground. The surrounding area is quiet, avoid this kind of noise.
The appropriate feeding time is early in the morning. At the beginning of the afternoon, check the amount of food in the trough just finished. However, you should also monitor the egg laying performance of each egg and adjust the amount of food accordingly. If the baby has a good yield, it is necessary to increase the amount of food to ensure health and enough nutrients for them to continue laying.
Ostrich production in South Africa. This process incorporates the movement of birds between a number of different types of farms before they are sent to the abattoir to be slaughtered. The process begins at hatcheries where eggs are incubated and, once hatched, chicks are moved to chick rearing farms within 72 hours. This most frequently occurs between September and February each year. The birds remain at these rearing farms for 2-3 months, when they are moved to adult rearing farms. They remain at these locations until they reach 70-90 kg (for approx. 1214 months) when they are moved to quarantine farms. They remain at these farms for ,30 days, and once deemed disease free they are transferred to an abattoir for slaughter.
