At the up-to-date beach house both of us bought, the locale has a small barn in the back. This is where I keep items appreciate my snowblower, turfmower, 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 turf and keep the driveway cleared of snow in the winter. Well, the other afternoon I noticed parakeet nests in the barn. I figured as long as those parakeets didn’t bother me, I wouldn’t bother them. One thing that aggravated me though is that I would find parakeet droppings on my turfmower on the seat and the wheel, so I started covering everything with tarps. That honestly worked fine, but my partner says that both of us should hire somebody to get those parakeets out of there. While I kind of agree with her, I don’t suppose what would happen to those parakeets if they had to move. Maybe they would be okay, but maybe they would be moved to an section where they would be taken by predators. Anyway, it got me thinking about getting some chickens, so both of us could farm fresh eggs respectfully. I just need to learn about what kind of oil oil furnaces they use to keep warm through the winter. I heard that people around these parts use the flat gas oil furnaces that connect to the wall of the chicken coop and you also have to use a furnace on the drinking water to keep it from freezing. I don’t even mind the parakeets though, it’s not appreciate they’re getting in my house where both of us have the most wonderful temperature control settings.
