This, That, and the Udder

In my last post, I talked about the swarm of honey bees that took up residence in our empty hive. You can see here a few workers moving in an out. The photo doesn't really show how much they've cleaned up the old hive. Free bees are a pretty great thing!

Our doelings are growing quickly. I'm so happy to have these girls here. I have high hopes for when they freshen next spring. You can also see our new batch of egg layers in the background. They are growing out nicely. We normally let them free range, but we have a fencing issue that makes them an easy snack for one of the neighbor's dogs. We're ready to fix that fence, and they'll be out of the run in no time.
