We saw this place by chance while driving past, and turned around to check it out. So glad we did! A very impressive, unique operation – well organized and so much fun. The facility is clean and the animals are well taken care of. You can spend as much time as you want with the animals (the donkeys and deer like to be petted) and then the “tour” ends with the rainbow lorikeets – so much fun we kept buying more feed!

Worth pulling off the freeway for.
We have been driving past this little gem for a few years as we head between Tucson and Mesa.
It was a fun place to spend a couple of hours. The 13 dollars a person was worth it.
Feeding the deer, ostriches! Goats. Ducks etc. Is a good break from the road for old and young.
It is a good place for kids just please watch them so they are not teasing the animals.

This place is a kick and a half, especially with children
We love visiting Rooster Cogburn, and can’t wait for visitors with kids to have an excuse to go there. It’s a bargain experience as it only costs $13 for ages 6 and older. You get cups of feed for everything from donkey’s, to deer, to goats, to sheep, to rabbits, ducks, canaries and more. They eat out of your hand. It’s a ball watching kids run from animal to animal anxious to feed them. After feeding the animals they are a lorikeet feeding area when the colorful birds sit on your arm (and sometimes head) drinking the nectar in your hand. Now they also have a string ray feeding a touching pool.
It’s a feel-good place, at a reasonable price.
