From a life in the corporate world to a small farm. My new work colleagues eat grass or lay eggs. I've got a lot to learn about things that just seem to happen when nature becomes your new boss.

Baby chickens everywhere. It's spring. Mothers have stern words and flapping of wings over their protective circles. Roosters are struggling to keep up with the demand for a watchful eye over the hens as they wander about the grounds. Mothers play groups don't form and there's not a jumping castle in sight. Wattle birds are told to push off in no uncertain terms and the ever present farm cat watches on with more than a passing curiosity. Fortunately farm cat is on a strict diet of more meals than usual as we feed her up to keep her mind elsewhere.
