    I noticed on these nice warm few days we have had here in Michigan that swarms of bee's are all over my chickens feeder. They are attracted to something, What? I put out some wheat and cracked corn for a little treat and they were all over it too? What is it they areliking so much?

    Must be the closest thing to pollen (or mud) that they can find.

    Be grateful that you have bees. Many folks have had all of their bees die off.
