Bees are both easy, and fascinating, as well as great suppliers of food and pollination.
A feeder when starting a hive out gives them a boost, as well as one in late winter on warm days. I have always enjoyed them, rarely ever got stung, and that usually my own fault when one got caught in my clothing somehow.
What kind are those bantams ?? Pretty little guys,
One of my Icees is trying to be a broodie but the others laying with her make it hard. So does my taking the eggs !
