Hello all,

First of all sorry if this is in the wrong section (if so mods please move)

Im Joe im 21 years old

errm this sounds really mad but hear me out im thinking of maybe getting in to Ostrich farming i know nothing of it but an really interested in getting into the industry

i know you need to apply for a Dangerous Wild Animals License, does anyone know how hard it is to get accepted for one? and the cost of application?

i beleave you need a minimum of a quater of an acer of land for it not to be seen as battery farming by DEFRA?

does anyone know the feeding costs of Ostrichs? think a fully grow bird needs 2kg of food aday?
