Our family absolutely loves Rooster Cogburn's Ostrich Ranch! I don't know what experience others have had here to cause them to write negative reviews, but whatever. I think the scissor lift goats are awesome, but the highlight for me is feeding the lorkeets! Tons of...More

What a lucky kiddo to be assigned to report on the Ostrich and it sounds like he got all the information he needed from the professional herself, Mrs. Lucille Cogburn! How fun! Hope he got an A++ on that report =] Thank you so much...More

The Lorikeets are always a fan favorite which is why we place them towards the end, so your experience can be topped off perfectly with those little love birds! "A shining star in the desert" is by far one of the most lovely titles we...More

Upon entering this tacky roadside attraction, I was disgusted to find that most of the animals seemed miserable, hungry and sick. Their pins were spacious, but with little or no shade, no hay, no trees, only dirt and cement. The donkeys, deer, goats and ostrich...More

Since the monster truck was involved in an accident the ranch has suspended monster truck rides until further notice. Ranch is still open and lots of cool stuff to do there.
