Farming ostriches is nothing new, they have been reared and farmed for well over a century particularly in South Africa, originally for the fashion trade. Ostrich feathers appear on the Prince of Wales emblem; but the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and European nobles have all used these plumes over the centuries.

The birds farmed today are almost all from domestic stock from various parts of the world but especially from Southern Africa, and the most common breed is the domesticated hybrid, the South African Black. Other breeds are the Red Neck and the Blue Neck.
