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!

Animals vs Humans (mainly children)

About a week ago I was trying to cheer myself up (the night before the new Government Australian Budget had been released and it was NOT pleasant). So although it may not be fact, not only are these videos actually quiet hilarious (especially with the adults obviously knowing what is about to happen) These videos are also a great reminder about how animals are in fact animals and parents need to remember to teach their children to respect this.
