Desaru Ostrich Farm

Two weekends ago, we took a ride to Desaru (work related) and explored some areas there and took the chance visit Desaru Ostrich Farm. This is what I love about Johor. You want city life, we have it, you want laidback kampung family entertainment farms, we have it!

After a delish ayam penyet lunch at Sungai Rengit, we continued our journey to Desaru beach and stopped by the ostrich farm on the way.

Rustic charm of Johor. I wish that gold Honda was a Kombi or a vintage car instead. 

The shopfront.

Souvenirs made of ostrich eggs and feathers.

Ostrich oil products.

Entrance fee and some adverts.

A day old ostrich.

Incubators.



The have other birds as well.

An educational talk on ostriches and their eggs. These guys are seriously the expert.

Pano view!

Pheasant.

Feeding the ostriches. They let you buy a bunch of these vege/leaves for RM2. I can't remember the name of the plant but it is said to be the best.



These birds have no teeth so little kids can feed them quite safely. Heheh. 

The egg can withstand 100kg of weight! Note: He is NOT 100kg. 

WOW. Can feed family of 6. We adjourned to the eatery next to the farm's shop and had ostrich egg omelette. It tastes 'eggier'. They serve a lot of other food related to ostrich meat too like fried rice, bak kut teh, satay etc.

Gorgeous feather. It looks very glam. But the pen's ink is dried already I think.

Adds up nicely to my home decor!
