Hi everyone, i really like ostriches, and ostrich-like birds, but can't seem to know of any other ones. If anyone knows of a bird similar to ostriches, but smaller, please tell me. I have a few questions: 1. What is the lifespan? 2. What is the smallest species? 3. What kind of ostrich is his? Apperantly its a "dwarf" ostrich: 4. I want to keep the ostrich in my house, kinda like a dog... Or in my backyard... How long does it tKe for them to reach a "reasonable" size, like the size i showed in the picture above. 5 any other good-looking flightless/semi-flightless/land/semi-land birds? Thanks.
