Noticed Mummy Bantam out and about and thought I would check on the eggs. Found a little pile of egg shells and nothing else. When I looked a little closer Mummy Bantam had three little satellites behind her.
So I’m now a granddad. I’ve my fingers crossed that they are all girls. I can see a noisy time ahead if there are any more cockerels but I would guess the laws of biology make the odds that at least one will be a cockerel.
Still waiting to see how the queens go in the bee hives. Should be hatching any day now so I will need to keep on top of them.
Was at a beekeepers meeting yesterday. Out of the 10 hives they had there four were OK and buzzing with activity, two were alive but didn’t look at all well and the remaining four were lifeless. Only managed to find one queen although there was evidence there were queens in every hive that had live bees in. All in all not good and the beekeeper had only been away for two weeks. How quickly nature kills.
Everything else seems to be plodding along although I have not been doing much on the sites lately.
