Magic baby Ostriches!

Last year was a really rough year for myself. I went through a really rough break up and found out what and who real friendships meant. During this time I was also doing my studies to become a Librarian.

Also last year one of my friends introduced me to a live feed, during which a baby ostrich was trying to hatch out of its egg. I spent the entire night and into the early morning watching this little baby Ostrich hatch. The reason I am making this post is because for me the birth of this bird introduced me to a different side of life. It felt like magic watching this baby bird hatch, it is one of the few times that I have watched any type of baby animal be born. It is definitely the first time I have watched a bird hatch out of it’s egg.

The “Dash” family decided to contribute this live feed to the entire world and I ended up making friends from all over the world. Unfortunately their first baby Ostrich passed away due to complications of  infected intestines and a retained yolk sac. (I cried about the baby Ostrich more than losing my ex as a friend). The Dash family decided to take on 3 more baby birds and they all eventually passed away due to different reasons (one was attacked by a raccoon!).

You can only imagine my excitement this morning when I woke up and there was an email notification saying that the Baby Ostrich Cam went live! I went straight there, before I ate, drank or got changed for the day. They now have 5 little eggs that they are hoping will be hatching around the 13th of July 2014. I think that that couple of days I will be taking notes and then I am going to write one full blog about it…So look out for that one!
