    Yeah. I am hoping to attend a beginners eveniong course which I think begins around Febuary of next year. Should be good Thanks Steve
  7. I went to clean the nest box where my chickens sleep last week brcause they dont have roost bar but any way there were so many feathers over the space of a night. It was unbelievable
  8. I dont think worming is vital for me as for me as I have them just in run. I took treats of them so its probably just the cold weather. Thanks again everyone

    Thanks olly for great help. I am hopeing to do any evening beekeeping course if I can work other things around it. Good to hear about being able to go within a foot of hive without anybother. I am just trying to learn as much as I can they are very interesting and I want to make a good stab at looking afterthem as best I can so thats why I have been asking questions. I have arranged to get a second hand hive, i have suit and smoker. So will wait to new year to get bees. Steve
