Just so stinkin' CUTE!
(getting all 3 to keep from moving for a whole second might be asking too much)
We did lose one red chick to smash... so sad. Thankfully momma hen never knew it. Thankfully we were blessed with more so that we are not left empty and grieving or having to buy them at the store...
We also got our bees. After 7 years we took the plunge and got lucky. Wow what a different kind of experience and set of challenges!
All I can say is that no matter what you see or read or hear, I think it's like walking blind in a forest, yet exhilarating too. You become immediately protective of the hive queen - everything depends on her and so much can go badly/wrong.
Oh yeah, after so many years in the weather, the paint is peeling on the hives. Too late to do anything about that- but it works ok for now.
Today I'll just keep things short and sweet... sometimes it's good to stop at what's good and look no further.
But I'll be back...and no promises then.
