Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch.

Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch
Just the thought of an Ostrich Ranch is weird, but the Cogburns have made the real thing weirder. Be ready to get kissed by a goat, but don't try to kiss an ostrich. Roadsideamerica.com Report... [02/02/2020]

Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch

Oh my stars, absolutely one of the very best roadside attractions ever! $12 to feed all the animals, $3 more to feed the stingrays. The place has no lines, and everyone there is pleasant and informative. My husband and I do a lot of road traveling and we love these small side attractions... but this place is by far one of the most entertaining visits we have ever done!

No more monster truck rides. There was an accident. They have even more animals now, including some sting rays to feed in the desert!

Great way to break up the road trip, especially if you have kids. You need 45 minutes to feed the animals or 90-120 minutes to ride the monster truck! Gary, our monster truck guide, was knowledgeable and super kind. Everyone loved this stop!

Goats enjoy the Hole in the Wall.

Rooster Cogburn's Ostrich Ranch

If you're looking for something a little outlandish on the stretch of highway north of Tucson, this is it. The Goat Penthouse is just about the best thing ever. When we asked why there were sky goats, we were told that the goats love being up high, and they race to be the first in line to get cranked up on the platform. You can feed them treats via conveyor belt.

And, of course, there's a Wall of Goats, because -- why not? The ostriches are fascinating (but watch your fingers if you hand-feed them), and the lorikeets will climb all over you for your tiny cup of nectar.

The small shop at the entrance offers a variety of ostrich-themed items, including eggs, feathers, and eggshell jewelry.
