Maintaining egg quality for the full breeding season is a major challenge. Compared with control groups fed alfalfa, barley, and spent brewers' grains, those fed AOF Ostrich Breeder produce dramatically superior results, including improvements in hatchability of up to 400%. Increased amounts of well-balanced vitamins and trace minerals support development of stronger embryos, and significantly reduce young chick mortality rates.
Feeding Directions: Feed 4-5lbs per bird per day to ostriches 15+ months. Ensure sufficient feeder width so all birds can eat simultaneously and ensure clean water is available at all times. Distribute into feeders; never onto bare ground. Protect from rain and direct sunlight once distributed, and discard all remaining pellets from previous day before providing fresh feed. As female nutritional needs differ, we recommend supplements at specific points in the season, including offering oyster shell during laying season to increase calcium intake. Climate and physical environment significantly impact Breeder health and laying cycles; contact us (Feeds@AmericanOstrichFarms.com) to discuss optimizing your supplementation and the periodization thereof.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
Raising ostriches requires 1/3 the fresh water, 1/50th the land, and generates 1/10th the greenhouse gas emissions of cattle.
Our solar-powered facilities, locally sourced feed, and systems to convert waste into chemical-free compost are just a few of the ways we conserve resources.
We utilize every possible byproduct and are continually looking for innovative ways to achieve a net-zero impact on the environment.
We go to great lengths to ensure our flock is healthy, happy, and humanely handled from hatch to harvest.
We understand being hesitant to spend money on something unfamiliar, but don't let fear of the unknown stop you. We stand behind our products and are very confident you'll love them. If you're disappointed in your purchase for any reason, we'll refund your order, up to $100.
