    Don't let them breed with each other.

    Yes, don't do it. :)
    It's very hard work to keep any fowl clean.
    Every bee keeper around here does enjoy bee keeping, but is also hard work and they always are getting stung.

    Get some of the chickens that lay blue and pink and green eggs. The woman I buy my eggs from has some chickens that do. It's pretty festive.

    Cage the bees where the chickens cannot get to them. If you don't the chickens may make a meal out of your bees.
