An Ostrich is an animal that can be hatched by placing an Ostrich Egg into an Ostrich Incubator in a Barn. An Ostrich Egg takes approximately 9.5 days to incubate. After maturing for a week, an Ostrich will produce an Ostrich Egg every 7 days.

An Ostrich Egg can be initially found by solving Journal Scrap #10, or as a random drop from the chests in the Volcano Dungeon.

Ostriches who eat every day mature after 7 days, after which they produce an Ostrich Egg every 7 days. An Ostrich Egg can then be sold for Gold.png600g, or put into a Mayonnaise Machine to produce 10 Mayonnaise of the same quality as the egg, or placed in an Ostrich Incubator to hatch another Ostrich.
