Although ostriches can go with out water for lots of days, they like water and can bathe when they have the opportunity. Contrary to a popular fantasy, ostriches do not bury their head within the sand. Nests are a dip within the ground, and both mother and father take turns sitting on the eggs, which they periodically turn with their beaks. Sometimes ostriches will lie down with their necks outstretched. Since their necks blend in with the natural substrate in their habitats, it may be perceived that they have “buried” their head and neck in the sand.
These large animals are the most important dwelling chook, weighing as much as 300 pounds and standing as tall as eight toes. They have two forward-facing toes on each foot, and long legs which are bare of feathers. Their powerful legs make them able to running up to forty miles per hour, an necessary adaptation for a flightless bird. The dominant or “alpha” hen mates with the territorial male, and so they share the duties of incubating the eggs and caring for the chicks.
