RE: GA as a place to raise ostrich. It should be fine. Ostriches like grazing and running. If you can provide that, they will grow. I know farmers raise them in Canada and Texas -- two very different environments. It would be good to have a warm dry place for chicks -- shelter with access to a grazing area. Young chicks need to have a place to get warm if the weather is cool or wet.
