Hamilton Zoo sell its ostrich eggs for conservation

Ostrich Waikato Times

It weighs 1.5kg, it's the equivalent of 20 to 24 chicken eggs and its dappled shell is as thick as a Chinese tea cup.

Now you can get your hands on one for as little as $15. Hamilton Zoo has too many to handle so they're going under the hammer on Trade Me in the name of conservation.
