I just met a family that used to have a bee keeper but he died They are looking for some chickens to add to their flock and a chicken person to help and a new bee keeper. They asked if I could learn it, I said I was not sure but in my head I thought why not??? So is it hard? What would be the best book to buy, and is there a good place like BYC where I could go to learn? any suggestions or info would be greatly appreciated this could be a great opportunity for me, they might even let me keep a few breeding pens at their property to help with my rooster issues Essentially I would be their, gardener/chicken/bee caretaker which would be wonderful for me and good for them since I am a hard worker Oh and they already have 3 nice looking bee houses so I am assuming they have all the equipment as well just no one to do it and no bees this year I dont think.
