Baby Ostrich Video Shows Bird Fighting Sleep

Posted: Updated:

This little ostrich chick sure puts up a good fight!

In this adorable video uploaded to YouTube, a newborn ostrich tries his hardest to stay awake, sinking to his knees in a desperate attempt to keep his head up before finally laying down and closing his eyes.

All we can say is aww.

Ostriches don't make for good pets, but millions of barnyard animals are looking for loving homes. If you're searching for a unique pet of your own, head over to or the Farm Sanctuary.
