    Great Tits feeding their young on my bees.

    what happens if that individual bee is a virgin queen on a mating flight ?

    bees and chickens

    2 yrs ago a queenless colony attacked my turkeys,geese and my dogs but left the chickens alone !! The bees seem to be attracted to the drinkers i put out for the birds. The birds are all free range. PS united the colony with another and they are now really nice to handle.:)
