    does anyone have bees? I am thinking about getting bees and I was wonderingly anybody else have bees. Do you guys think byc should have a forum for specifically just bees? I say this because they have forums for guinea fowl, peacocks, etc.. So why not bees?

    Type 'beekeeping' in the search bar at the top of the page. There are several good threads on beekeeping.

    Lots of chicken folk have bees now. Somebody has to keep them going. Lots of high quality bee talk and photos pop up on, "Stella's Social Club" thread, as well as other interesting topics., like "Tucker's monkey vest," recipes, you name it.

    I guess you need to seal the steaks with cement, to be sure it doesn't happen again.
