Pauli is 9 years old. She lives in South Africa in a valley where the farmers all raise ostriches. Her parents are ostrich farmers too. They sell the birds’ meat, eggs and feathers for a very good price. Pauli loves helping out with the chores: collecting the eggs for incubation and hatching and transferring the young chicks. She likes spending time with the chicks because they’re very cute! Her family also raise sheep – Pauli just loves them, especially the lambs. Whenever one of them falls ill, she just can’t wait to race to its rescue and care for it until it gets better.
