The weather was really lovely today. It seemed more like May then February. Juergen and I took Jessica for a drive. I would have liked a walk but Jess wouldn't walk. The sky was almost unreal. I wish I could paint. My painter Nicole is starting to pack her bags. She leaves for America in a week. She will be there for 5 weeks. I look back at all our adventures together last year. She is well on the way to new adventures. What an exciting period in her life. And I have my ticket too. God willing, I will join Nicole in Oregon at the end of March (only for 10 days). I would love more time, but I'm grateful to have the opportunity. Juergen must take time off of work, and take care of the family alone. It is not very easy. So my adventure will be short, but sweet! I hope to get some work done in the garden this week. I also hope to be doing some teaching in March. So I must study. It's easy to study when it's cold. I never thought the weather would be so nice. It is hard to study when it is spring!
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.
