If you think you are over your head now, just wait till you have 1200 lbs of honey that you don't know what to do with....
It is nice to have those little helpers around when harvest time comes around.
The nice thing is that they've been abandoned for a while. If only you can leave them alone they should be fine through the winter
I was raised with chickens (and my wife says that I act like I was raised BY chickens!!
), and while it would be nice to have a few around for some eggs, mostly it was just alot of work and smelly poop. And butchering them isn't a cakewalk either....
