I was in the midst of purchasng 2 female ostriches, found a local add an responded and wiated 3 days for an answer. Finally I got one. they gave me the information I was looking for and and after a few emails back and forth I started getting a wee bit suspicious. I went back to the add which stated it was located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, I clicked on map and it brought me to a locaion In Alberta canada, today during the final email the seller states she is in Johannesburg, gauteng RSA, at first I thought it was russia till I figured out it means rest of africa. something didn't seem right, the woman said I could have 2 for 120 dollars each (first red flag) shipping included (second red flag) a third location (third red flag) then the email kept going and the seller said it takes 8 hours to ship to canada...uhmm not likely!!! Customs today confirmed shipping international live animals is Illegal?? anyhow getting to it. My husband had his heart set on 2 female ostrich chicks, and so did I. Does anyone know of a supplier, farm etc..in canada?? I've got a large farm, and I would love to have a couple running around!!
