We settled here in Northern Virginia about 21 years ago after retiring from the US Air Force. After talking about doing more to provide some fresh things for ourselves, we started with a small green house and more fruit trees 2 years ago.
Early last year we decided to adopt a few chickens and finally take the jump into Honey Bees. Since we have all manner of non-chicken friendly wildlife in our area we designed the coop to be as predator proof as possible hence the Fort Chick name.
The hens settled in fine and are giving us plenty of delicous eggs in a rainbow of colors including white, pink, green/blue, and various shades of brown.
The Honey Bees also settled in well and even gave us some honey last fall.
Still getting about 8 to 10 eggs a day right now. From Bantam to Jumbo’s.
Bee Yard going strong. Honey supers up on all the hives.
