Abstract: The demand for ostrich meat and o:her products is increasing. The primary problem facing the industry is a lack of information on the nutrient requirements of these birds, particularly neonatal birds. This may be partly responsible for the high mortality of chicks and the lack of expansion of the industry. Knowledge of the development of the ostrichich's anatomy and digestive function is limited. Th is review collates current knowledge on these aspect s and Suggests a way forward for the development of ostrich nutrition.
