Welcome TO BEST FARMERS HOUSE
Nowadays, many countries around the world have started ostrich farming as a new business venture. The feather of ostrich is extremely valuable, which is mainly used for home decoration purposes. Their skin is also very valuable, and their meat is considered as very delicious food and has high demand in the international market.
The Scientific name of ostrich is ‘Struthio Camelis’. Ostrich is the biggest bird among all the bird species. They also produce the largest eggs. An adult male ostrich weights between 63 to 130 kg (140-290 lbs) and an adult female ostrich weights about 155 kg (340 lbs). Adult male ostrich feathers are black colored, primary and caudal feathers are white colored. Female and baby ostrich feather can be of gray or white colored. The neck of the both male and female ostrich is almost featherless.
Unlike many of the animals raised for meat today, Dromaius Novaehollandiae (emu) is totally usable. Food by-products include the fat (oil), feathers, claws, leather and un-hatched or infertile eggs. Even the bones are used in some craft projects. Very little of the emu will go into a land fill. The emu belongs to a group of flightless birds called Ratites. Most Ratites have long been extinct, only the kiwi, rhea, cassowary, emu and ostrich survive today.
Emus are friendly, interesting birds and are fairly easy to keep, they are very docile but curious, and are easily tamed in captivity. Our website will provide some basic information about Emus and Emu products and our contact details for more detailed information.
