On our way to Tucson, we stopped at Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch. We stopped here last year for the first time when we visited here and we remember Ava having a good time so we wanted to stop again. We try to instill our love of animals onto our girls and places like these are great places for them to interact and learn about these beautiful creatures first hand.
Here are some photos we took during our visit. The cost is $5 for adults and kids under 7 are free. The $5 entry fee gets you a bucket of feed and a little cup of nectar for the birds.
This is a new feature that wasn’t here last time. It is quite hilarious how the goats stick their heads through the wall looking for food. The wall make Ava feel more comfortable in feeding them straight out of the cup. She ran back and forth making sure everyone had their fair share of food. There is a video at the bottom of this post of her doing just that.
Since it is an Ostrich Ranch, there are obviously ostriches here. But they are notoriously aggressive and can be pretty painful to get a little peck from those big bird beaks. Ava decided to skip on down to the next animal.

Until next time, happy trails!
