 I  just  saw  in  this  article  that  Ostrich  meat  is  higher  in  protein  and  lower  in  saturated  fats  than  any  other  meat.  It  is  also  not  much  costlier  so  why  not  we  feed  this  or  incorporate  it  into  DIY  food  for  piranha,  etc  instead  of  chicken  or  BH.  What  do  you  all  think  about  this  ?

 I  guess,  we  here  in  India  won't  get  Ostrich  meat  in  quantum...i.e.,  their  availability...Even  if  we  get,  compare  it  to  the  price  of  BH...Say  What??

 Yes,  price  may  be  the  only  limiting  factor-  here  there  is  a  promotion  going  on  so  its  a  real  steal.  I  am  planning  on  using  minced  ostrich  every  3  days  in  addition  to  the  daily  earthworms.

 One  of  the  very  important  reasons  for  beefheart  being  the  staple  feed  is  its  low  cost!!  if  one  can  afford  to  feed  good  pellet  food.  THat  also  works..  since  i  have  seen  fish  that  are  gworn  up  only  on  tetrabits  to  get  huge  and  breed  as  well...  So  the  choice  is  due  to  the  cost  apart  from  teh  protien  content  in  my  opinion..

 Yeah,  you  are  right.  It  is  a  risk.Ostrichs  and  Emus  share  this  trait  along  with  chicken.

 Hmmm  !  What  to  do  ?  Guess  I  better  cook  and  eat  the  ostrich  myself.  Crying or Very sad

 I  think  the  meat  will  be  tougher  compared  to  the  normal  poultry  meat!
 I  guess  I'll  try  it  someday    Chuckle

 Ostrich  steak  is  rather  delish...  the  texture  and  flavour  are  somewhere  between  chicken  and  beef.
 
 There  are  a  couple  of  emu  farms  in  India...  you  should  see  emu  meat  on  the  market  in  a  couple  of  years.IIRC,  ostrich  is  not  far  behind.
