    I have a customer who is asking me to find her some ostrich eggs or chicks and so far I have yet to find anyone still in this type of farming. If anyone can help me out let me know.

    I remember reading something about ostrich farms in north carolina, ask her to google ostrich breeders, i'm pretty sure university of north carolina or just the state has a program of breeding ostriches.

    Thanks everyone who posted but, the more I talk with her the more I'm seeing that she may not know what she is getting into. And I rather not be the one responsible for obtaining dangerous birds for someone who may not be prepared to take on raising these animals.

    My parents still have a pair of ostriches. These two aren't compatible, obviously, because the hen hasn't laid in over four years, and they are still young, as far as ostriches go. Does she want some adult birds??? Cheap cheap!!
