The female ostrich will lay one egg every two days during the breeding season – ostriches do not lay eggs the whole year round like chickens do. The breeding season for ostriches id from about June to the end of September. One ostrich egg is equivalent to 24 hen’s eggs. You can invite the extended family for breakfast when preparing a ostrich egg. We recommend you make scrambled eggs since it is the most practical way of preparing such a big egg. We made a video to show you how to open a ostrich egg for your big breakfast.
