The Kenyan "Red" Ostrich

The Kenyan Red can be a nasty fellow.  A very aggressive and territorial ostrich the Kenyan is clearly identifiable by his red coloring in the body and neck.  These bad tempered birds are larger than the South African ostriches, and can reach up to 160 kg.  They but do not have the same feather quality as the South African ostriches.  South African ostriches usually produce better skins as the feathers grow closer together and have a better pattern of quills on the skin.  Visit www.safariostrich.co.za  for more information on our tour offerings.
