Ostriches (native to Africa) belong to the Ratite family, as do Emus (native to Australia), rheas (native to South America)
The female ostrich lays her fertilised eggs in a single communal nest, a simple pit, 30 to 60 cm deep and 3 m wide, scraped in the ground by the male. Ostrich eggs are the largest of all eggs, though they are actually the smallest eggs relative to the size of the adult bird. On average they are 15 cm long, 13 cm wide, and weigh 1.4 kilograms, over 20 times the weight of a chicken's egg and only 1 to 4% the size of the female.
They are glossy cream-coloured, with thick shells marked by small pits.
