Why ostriches? This history of the big flightless birds in Chandler
The city of Chandler will be holding its annual Ostrich Festival this weekend. It’s a big event featuring rides, live music headliners and more. But why ostriches?
Turns out, while ostriches are not native to Arizona, they go a long way back in Chandler to pre-statehood days when ostrich feathers on ladies hats were all the rage and Dr. Alexander J. Chandler had a herd of the exotic birds on his land.
The Show caught up with Chandler Museum’s Jody Crago to learn more.
