Drama at the Farm
First off, I’d like to share a perk of working at the farm. This is a sunrise that Damien and I (Asa) witnessed when driving to Bertrand the other day.
In other, slightly less astronomical drama, we’ve been having a problem with the meat chickens lately. Particularly, some of them have dropped dead. As you might think, this isn’t what they’re supposed to do — at least, not now.
This problem is due to two things: heat and pests. The chickens can barely take the hot weather, and being chased by a predator doesn’t help. We found that the farm peacock was one of the dastardly culprits, and one of the younger Farm Camp workers, Augie, faithfully captured the peacock. The task took about an hour of good sprints, but finally Mr. Peacock wore out.
Mr. Peacock is now behind bars and is awaiting trial.
