I have what I think is a stomach flu today. I have a headache, the chills, and I have to run to the toilet allot. Not fun. It's rainy and cold outside. I have allot of stuff to read. I read today that long winters were made for warm blankets and thick books. I guess you can add tea to that list, and dreaming of summer. I found a vacation house on the Oregon coast. God willing, my family is going to have a very special birthday party for my mom there. I am going to America at the end of March. Nicole will already be there. She is traveling for a whole month. I can only manage 10 days away. It's too hard on Jürgen to be a single parent for longer than that. It's too hard for me too. Our kids are allot of work. And he won't have Nicole’s help. But he did it 2 times last year. I'm pretty sure he can handle it. And I'm going to try hard to have a great trip to visit my family. I hope the weather is good. Oregon has one of the nicest coasts in the world. It isn’t all that warm, but it is amazingly beautiful. I have not spent much time there. But I look forward to some long walks on the beach, and trying to catch a crab. I don’t even know if I like crab. I’ve only had it in sushi rolls. But the trip to the coast is something I look forward to. It warms my heart on this cold day!
Why not start with an IBC and cut a hole for the door? You could build closed laying boxes into it, and something for the chickens to roost on. Put some straw or saw dust on the floor. You could add vents to the side for air. If it sat inside a chicken run that you can walk into, the chickens could be safe, dry and happy. I have an extra IBC. Maybe this could be my chicken house? I bet I could even plant the outside of it with mud and grass for extra insulation and good looks.
