We have a tree right near where our chickens will be. The thing must have 3-5 bee's nests in it. There are several different types of bee's in it. Around here, most days are what they call."partly cloudy" As ive been working on the coop, ive noticed the bee's seem to like to land on the coop and in the grass in the same area. Whenever the cloudy portion occurs they seem to stop , im guessing until they can heat back up and move on, Sometimes this takes all day and they get stuck where they are. Are my chickens going to eat them? Will they get stung? Its amazing I havent been stung yet...knock wood. The coop is not currently as close to the tree as it is finally intended to be. And yes, for the record, some of the bee's in the tree are honey bee's, some bumble bee's and hek if I know the names of the other types. There are probably thousands of them.
