Where are we going today?

The Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch is about more than just Ostriches.

Stop in and feed the critters for an unforgettable experience. Something for everyone - ostrich, deer, miniature Sicilian donkeys and Boer goats plus the Monster Truck Tours!

Hand feed the lorikeets nectar in their 5,000 square feet tropical enclosure, and get goaty kisses from the Hole In The Wall. Fallow deer also exceptionally tame and will hand feed from children.

    Very simply, hands down the best roadside attraction in the world. Rooster is a gentleman and the ostriches are charming. If you drive past this place and don't stop by for 20 minutes, you are cheating yourself out of an amazing experience.

    Had a blast! Loved feeding the ostriches, goats, donkeys, and deer. The lorikeets were also really cool, but they bit me when I tried to share the nectar amongst them. The staff were great, monster-truck ride was cool, and she was very knowledgeable teaching us about the Arizona desert while speeding over hills. Great experience and I will definitely recommend it to visitors!

    This place is simply incredible. I had to do a review because of the very inaccurate and ridiculous posting from the gentleman who claims the animals are not cared for and not fed enough. I've been visting Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch for years. The owners take great care for their animals and constantly go out of their way to make them and the human visitors happy. I think the poster doesn't understand that animals naturally seek food, and don't get full! No matter how much they eat, they will want more.Look carefully at these animals and you'll...Read More

They'll have a great time that they'll never forget
