    You've an interesting mob here! 

    Sticking their head in the sand is a common myth.  They don't actually do that, but it really isn't a harmful myth.

    Drops sound like it will be akin to the Chicken:  Feathers, possibly eggs, and maybe meat.  Ostrich is eaten in Africa and it is a dark red meat according to Wikipedia. They also can produce leather apparently?

    Perhaps ostriches are the only way to exterminate termites:  Any time you try to destroy a termite spawn block, it just infests nearby blocks.

    And although I didn't think it possible: Wikipedia does mention Ostrich Racing as part of South African culture.  It does say they're harder to control than horses ... so perhaps their Riding mechanic should be faster than a pig, slower than a horse, and sometimes they deviate from your desired path.

     

    Congrats to Ostrich fans!

    I would advise not to have ostriches stick their heads into sand, this is a myth and it's important to not add myths like this. Remember the parrot? The team had to change parrots so that they die when their fed cookies, because they were gonna have them be fed with them, due to a common myth of "Polly want a cracker."

    Would like to suggest ostrich as a faster mount than horse

    (Since it is really faster than horse, this as a reference: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fastest_animals)

    But they should be harder to control

    Like carrot on a stick mechanic like pig - able to walk only in line of sight and only autojump, or perhaps, ostrich randomly striding into random directions while controlling(In a safe zone, of course)

    Or maybe, player will eventually fall off the ostrich if the riding gauge turns to 0, and replenishing the gauge by carrot stick or other new items, maybe termites?

    Can you do a behavioural of ostrich that when they breed they will go into their nest and lay egg and it will take 5 to 6 minecraft days to hatch. Like turtle eggs? Pls?
