At the current loft all of us bought, the place has a small barn in the back.
- This is where I keep items love our snowblower, sodmower, and there is also another small tractor that can be used to plow fields and do farming work.
I wasn’t planning on doing any farming, but of course I mow the sod and keep the driveway cleared of snow in the winter. Well, the other day I noticed bird nests in the barn. I figured as long as those birds didn’t bother me, I wouldn’t bother them. One thing that aggravated me though is that I would find bird droppings on our sodmower on the seat and the wheel, so I started covering everything with tarps. That certainly worked fine, but our partner says that all of us should hire somebody to get those birds out of there. While I kind of agree with her, I don’t know what would happen to those birds if they had to move. Maybe they would be okay, but maybe they would be moved to an area where they would be taken by predators. Anyway, it got me thinking about getting some chickens, so all of us could farm fresh eggs respectfully. I just need to learn about what kind of gas furnaces they use to keep hot through the winter. I heard that people around these parts use the flat gas furnaces that link to the wall of the chicken coop and you also have to use a oil furnace on the drinking water to keep it from freezing. I don’t even mind the birds though, it’s not love they’re getting in our loft where all of us have the most enjoyable temperature control settings.
