It's warm here, and lately numerous bees (like 15-20 each feeder) are crawling in the chicken's feed. Is this just me? At this moment I'm using the Purina Flock Raiser in the green bag. I can only think that there are no flowers or very few, so something in this feed is attracting the bees. Anyone else have this, or do I have a new phenomenon? And, Are the bees going to discourage the chickens from consuming what is in the feeder? How do chickens and bees get along together? Wild birds cleaned out one of the feeders today too, along with contributions from two of my chickens... about a soup can of feed by 5PM. It looks like mostly chipping sparrows & cardinals. No wonder the chickens in that coop have been grouchy lately. Part of the joys of "winter" I guess. Thanks if anyone has insights.
