    Getting a head start on the Spring , or is it anticipation ... I don’t know ! ? Anyway I am in day 14 of incubating eggs hoping to get a good ratio of hatchers 40 eggs went in . Culled after candling yesterday 8 were non starters and I’m find it damn near impossible to candle blue eggs . So I’m left with 30 which are developing right on schedule . I believe this new incubator Adam got last year to be far and away the easiest one ever . Forced air , built in electronic hydrometer and electronic thermostat make it easy to check just a couple times a day . So , one more week and we shall see !

    Went to a put luck last night, we took two dishes. Our usual home made sheet cheese pizzas and a tomato/cucumber salad with Italian dressing and chunks of sharp cheese. As for other dishes... There were two type of meatballs, one in standard sauce and the other tasted like the recipe above. A green bean casserole, potato salad, coleslaw, chili, shrimp ring, baked ziti, plus assorted desserts. The usual fare.

    Yeah they were originally meant to be an appetizer. Could easily be done. Kelly now makes a pretty great taco soup. We made buffalo chicken pasta one night and that was pretty good. Just think chicken wing dip with ziti or rigatoni shells.

    Luckily Dr.Cilip got me in and the process started. Xray was fine no bone damage he figures nerve damage which would explain the sharp random pains through out my left shoulder and arm. The forcasted 24 month recovery is kinda crappy. I start PT next week.

    And it starts ... 21 days in , right on schedule . This was one from an egg collected day one of three days of collecting and storage of 40 potential hatchers . So , to get eggs before they chill out in the pen proves difficult this time of year ... duh , right ! LOL . Anyway 10 are pipping and hatching and another 15 should start pipping overnight .

    Speaking for myself and no one else. I have been to most of the information sessions that DEC and DOH puts on and its the same dozen or so people complaining about the same thing. If the school is so bad that kids that went there for 3-4 years have problems, then why don't teachers that have been in that building for 15-30 years have no problems. Last I heard Walter Hang was up in Watkins stirring up the same problems.

    Prepare your jumbo shells. Generally 1 block of cream cheese per pound of meat add in the required taco seasoning stuff the shells with meat and cream cheese mixture cover with your favorite taco sauce or salsa bake for 10-15 minutes then cover the shells in either broke up taco shells or tortilla chips and cheese bake for 10 more minutes and enjoy. The original recipe called for chili powder but taco seasoning works better and its easier. You can make them nice and neat for appetizers or just slop the toppings on and spoon them out. They really are delicious.

    Putting a swarm trap down there will not bother the bee tree. That hive will probably produce multiple swarms over the summer, you'll just be catching the ones looking for a new home anyways. I caught a conversation about how wild hives that have occupied trees or walls for decades must be naturally varroa resistant since they have survived so long. Turns out that studies have shown those hives tend to die off frequently and then get replaced quickly by a new swarm.

    It sounds like you are getting it figured out. I'm sure those two hives will make it through to spring given what you have described about your program. I typically have a hive or two die out by December. Usually it is from late season supercedures where the hive decides to replace the queen, unsuccessfully, in September after the knotweed flow. I had one hive this season die out in December, I think that was from a robbing session I set off during harvest in late September. Although it was my weak hive all summer. I should have just pinched the queen and combined it with another hive. I have a hard time pinching queens. My biggest problem is that I don't know how to stop making bees. I don't want this many hives. There is something about my location that I have had hives filling the brood area by the end of April and swarming shortly thereafter when they have barely begun making drones. I think it might be from Maple flows from all of the suburban yards near me. Because I live in a neighborhood swarms really concern me, I don't want to have bees moving into the neighbor's houses. I have been pretty stubborn about maintaining a single 10 frame deep brood box as my standard set up. Double 10 frame boxes are just too much work to give more than a cursory inspection, and they are getting too heavy to lift to get to the bottom box. The problem is there are not many options for swarm management with a single box colony. Last year I started some double 8 frame boxes, yet still had problems preventing swarms. This year I am trying a couple of colonies as one deep and one medium of ten frame boxes. I might also go back to two 10 frame deeps, but those suckers are heavy and getting heavier every year so probably not. When I find swarm cells I can't help but make several splits to prevent swarming and angry neighbors. I move the queen to a nuc colony, leaving the original colony with a swarm cell. If I have the resources and multiple frames with swarm cells I make additional nucs with the swarm cells. Thus, one becomes three or four. This is how an apiary goes from three hives to a dozen or more by the end of summer. It is also why I tend not to get much early honey. It seems to be a choice between making bees or honey, and if I don't manage swarms at all I get neither. I made and used Snelgrove boards last year to try and improve my honey harvest. This delayed swarming so I managed to get a somewhat decent spring harvest. But, by the end of June, they swarmed anyways and I ended up with two or three hives from the original one. I will probably use the Snelgrove boards again this year, with just one colony in the top split, and merge the two colonies back into one during the July dearth. Hopefully this will work well with the double 8 frame colonies, providing a decent honey harvest and no expansion. There is so much to learn in this hobby, and the turn rate for experimenting is so slow, that I think a lifetime is not enough to really have it figured out.

    Thank you for the info Johnny Go . I have looked into the Varrox , vaporizer and believe this is the best choice for our little operation . After losing too many hives ( disheartening as all get out ) I joined Soaring Capital Beekeepers last year . What an education I got in a big hurry from some very helpful folks !! We went to screened bottom boards with IPM boards , used MAQs at appropriate time and temps , checked mite counts and this year will have a OAV program in place for Spring . I will consider this winter a success if , with all the prep , I can bring just one hive through and will expand from there . Hives , the most we have had at one time was six and trying to balance them with a couple other hobbies was irresponsible on my part . But now concentrating on the bee’s since basically starting from square one last year , and networking with other more experienced Beekeepers I now have the tools to move forward . Now understand , this old fart likes his hobby and I spend hours watching the girls come and go fascinates and relaxes me no end , but ... any more than five hives is more than I or my son ( partner in crime ) can handle LOL ! Keep posting on the subject as I could talk bee’s all day !

    16 hives ... Wow , and I worry over three , one which despite efforts was a Dec. deadout . I also read your link to sugar recipe but will not have time to make that before this weekend . I have had Winter patties on and need to look in on them and hope for cleansing flights since those temps will be about right . LOL , count your brood all you want ... I’ll be looking for a couple nucs come Spring sooo... It’s OAV treatments starting this year for us ! Just no such thing as “ strictly “ non chemical beekeeping it seems . We did MAQs first time this year and mite drop on IPM boards were reasonable . Please recommend a good vaporizer for OAV treatments , Thanks

    Well , here’s a first for me ... The best you can expect ( according to experts ) is 85% hatch rate . Hmmm , gotta call said experts so they can redo thier numbers . Not being cocky but evert egg i candled at day 14 hatched giving me 100% hatch rate ! Now I have to move up to a bigger brood box to accommodate the little booger’s . Pics later .

    I have to admit I like to see a hen and chicks running around the yard ! My problem is I can’t be hands off in the whole incubating process . As with the one “ help out “ today , still not completely hatched out , it has to finish hatching on its own ! Yeah , incubating ducks in general I understand is not easy , temps and a higher humidity, but I would give it a go !

    Every now and then I get tempted to hatch a bunch of little ones, but having a broody hen do the job is so much easier. That and I don't have a rooster. I gave up on hatching duck eggs, it's pretty difficult for the Call Ducks, even for experienced breeders. Meanwhile, the hens' last hatch rate was nearly 100%
