I live on a 1/4 acre lot so I am trying to decide where would be the ideal place to put my hive as not to agitate my only close neighbor. The best spot for getting good morning sun happens to be very close to my coop of six chickens. If the hive is placed at waist level, and the bees have to fly over a six foot fence to get out of the yard does anyone think that my bees are at risk of being eaten by the chickens that stay at ground level? I do have an alternate location where the hive is placed now. It is further from the chickens, but it does not receive very much sun at all. Anyone have experience in keeping bees near chickens?
