    A friend gave me 6 chickens, all mixed breeds. They are all between 4 and 5 months old, looking forward to fresh eggs.

    Man if I was a bee keeper I would die! I am allergic to bees DEATHLY the doctor said the more I get stung the worse it will be every time and unless I don't take care of myself I COULD lose my life.

    And what a great gift!
    Do you know what breed/breeds you have? Are any already laying?

    Welcome to BYC. As others have said there are several bee keeping threads on this site. Do a forum search, and they will all appear.
