Deer do not prefer ostrich fern but a hungry deer will eat whatever is available. As a side note from my experience, ostrich fern spreads pretty fast. You'll need to keep it in check or it will invade your lawn and adjacent garden areas. It needs water during hot, dry weather or the fronds will yellow and break.
