|Fertilized Eggs: Unless
you are experienced, this is not usually recommended. Incubation and hatching
equipment required immediately and fatality rate is usually higher for first
three months of chick's life.
Chicks: May be the least expensive avenue into industry. Value of chick increases dramatically from 3-4 months to 12-14 months.
Adolescents: Mid-price options. Females may be fertile at about 20 months and males may reach sexual maturity between the ages of 2-1/2 and 4 years. Risk: No guarantee that they will be good breeders.
Proven Breeders: Most expensive for obvious reasons.
Facilities Land: A breeding pair needs 1/3 to 1/2 acre. Ostriches need exercise, so pens should be at least 120 to 150 feet in length. Fencing: No consensus on type. Both chain link and smooth wire are widely used. Shelter: Extremely important for chicks; for adults, shelter is provided to keep food dry in inclement weather.
