One thing I love about Germany is the number of holidays and vacation days we have. Today is Easter Monday and Juergen went with Nicole and her friends to play paint ball. Yesterday he went ice skating with Sarah, Thomas and Philip. They all practiced skating backwards. I’ll get exercise in the garden this week. I hope to plant my potatoes, spinach, lettuce, kale, radishes, and cabbages etc…All the early spring crops that can handle a little cold. And we also want to finish the 6 raised garden beds for my small group that starts on April 25th. The raised beds are there, we just need to fill them with compost and soil. The kids have Easter vacation, and they owe me work for their cell phones.
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.
