About 50 Invercargill children, parents and caregivers visited the ostriches and aviary to see the animals be fed.
It was the first public feeding tour hosted by the Invercargill City Council living species team.
The Mortons went as a family, and it was the first time 5-year-olds Indie and Harper had held an ostrich egg.
Indie said she liked that ostriches could run fast; Harper liked how big their eyes were.
Tours would be held each Thursday in January.
