The Ostrich's color is mostly black, with the black being the color of the body. It has a baby pink head, an orange beak with two small black ovals as nostrils, white feathers on it's neck, and two black eyes making a mad expression with shine in the top left corner of it's eyes. The tip of it's tail feathers and wings also comprise of white.
The chicks are a yellowish-brown and about the size of an advanced Mouse.
Animals too low tier for you to eat can attack and eat your eggs (especially Moles). Set your chicks on any low-tiers that raid your egg areas.
Defend your chicks as well. While in conjunction with an attack by you they work quite well, without you, they're very weak. You can also use your chicks to block off an entrance to a hole, or use them to delay a predator, while you run away.
Another thing you can do as an Ostrich is not use babies at all, and rely purely on your sheer speed. Because you are faster than almost all animals on land, you can easily catch prey and escape predators like this.
You need to take care of your Baby ostrich as they need water. If you see that one of them has a blue dot under them (they are thirsty), direct them to the nearest water spot or healing stone until you know they are at a safe amount of water.
When playing defensively, using the chicks wisely is key. You can send the chicks in a direction away from where you are going to mislead predators. Additionally, you can cause the baby ostriches to target a predator to distract it.
In Team Mode, you can use an exploit with your babies to tail-bite team-mates for free XP. If you see a team-mate dying, use your babies and try to eat them for yourself.
In Wild Mope only, use your babes to attack predators for lots of XP!
