Philip called me from the YWAM base today. He said he was doing well. He understands everything. And he said he can receive mail. So if anyone wants to send him a card the address is Philip Heymann ( DTS) Youth with a Mission - Hurlach Schlossgasse 1 86857 Hurlach Germany He asked me to send him cookies and snacks …and money. Sounds right! He thinks he wants to stay for the entire 6 months. God willing he can. His English is improving. He is trying hard to speak in English, not German.
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.
