I had to take Sarah to the Dr to get a checkup for soccer camp. Before the appointment we had breakfast with Jessica at McDonalds. I also did some shopping. I have to leave food in the house for Jürgen. This afternoon we worked in the garden. We planted 6 window boxes, and lettuce and more flowers. She is a great helper. I also did some math and German with her on my computer. Everything is packed for my trip. I'll try to clean tomorrow. Jessica’s teacher may be able to work next week. That's very good news for Jürgen. I'm really looking forward to our time in Oregon!
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.
