If you are looking for somewhere different to take the kids one afternoon you could consider Ostrich Wonderland Showfarm, near Semenyih in Selangor.
It’s really a commercial poultry farm whose core business is to raise exotic birds for meat but, as a sideline, it opens its doors to visitors.
Besides ostriches, they farm guinea-fowl, turkeys, chickens and geese.
Conditions for the birds seem pretty good. They have plenty of space to move around – definitely free range rather than battery. The ostriches are kept in large enclosed pens. I wonder whether the Malaysian climate suits them as their natural habitat is usually a lot more arid. I noticed that some of the ostriches had lost their tail feathers, giving them a plucked and oven-ready look!
Apart from the birds there are plenty of puppies roaming freely and they also have ponies, donkeys, rabbits and a couple of monkeys. The monkeys are chained to their perches, which seems unnecessarily cruel.
Admission is RM10 adult and RM5 for kids which is a bit steep but, for that, the owner shows you around his egg-incubators and explains how to rear ostriches.
You can buy frozen ostrich and guinea fowl meat here and maybe even an ostrich egg but you need to have a giant egg-cup if you want to have it boiled!
Address, contact number and opening hours are shown on these signs:

Expensive entrance fee, waste of time…no value at all.
Everything is about money, rides, feed all extra after paying to go in…bahh
