Jessica is home again today because she refused to go to her appointment. I guess home is just too nice? I must admit it's frustrating for me. But it's out of my control. I'm sure she will go back to her routine eventually! Autism is not fun...I don't try to think about it much. I just try to flow with it. If I wasn't flexible I would break! But I’m warm, I’m safe, I’m loved. I love my daughter. I don’t have anything to complain about. The crocuses are already blooming in my garden. And I agree with Jessica, it is very nice at home.
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.
