Eggs & Breeding Stock

The stud farm is the primary supplier of breeding ostrich to the Australian ostrich industry.
Our breeding program is based on pure lines of African Black, Zimbabwe Blue, Kenyan Red, Australian Grey and our unique Whites. All stock have been selected for structural soundness, egg production, fertility, hatchability, carcase yield, skin quality, and growth rates which are all critical traits needed for a successful commercial ostrich business. Our genetic program is now combining to best traits from each breed to produce stock that will add significantly higher returns to commercial ostrich farmers and companies. Our genetics have consistently outperformed other stock in many countries and been the foundation to many international ostrich flocks and as a source for replacement breeders and new genetics.
