    anyone make their own pets food?

    I'd not thought of adding stuff like condroitin (I don't know what that is) but I may look into that for when my dog gets older.

    Unexpected hive split

    Sometimes when a hive swarms they stay close a short while before flying off. This happened to me. Check for a queen. A great site to learn about bees is Kaymon Reynolds, Tennessee Bees.

    The things you find

    We found a flattened egg the other day. Completely fine, just a flattened out egg shape. I don't know how that could happen but the shell was not cracked or anything. We ate the egg anyway:)
