This is so incredible. With such an amazing mother as a guide, these chicks have the best opportunity to survive and thrive. I know it is a tough environment. Is it possible to “lookup” to an ostrich as a role model! She is mine.

Read you first story and it was amazing, against all odds and finding you all as friends a mate eventually arrived,
I was very perturbed to read last week hyenas has raided the nest, and now absolutely delighted to see the new
clutch, just goes to show animals adapt to environment.
This is a very different and special story in an environment not suited to them, look forward to the follow up.
