My chicken's feeder is full of honey bees!!! Not sure where they are coming from, but they sure do love the feed I've got in there. Just plain ole' ACCO Layer Feed mixed with oatmeal that my mother got rid of since it had an out of date sticker on it. I'm not going to hurt the bees, not at all since there's news of them dying off and I need them for my garden. The chickens don't seem to mind the bees in the feeder. I poured more feed in there and they never once bothered me. Whew!
