Don do you think Ca is to far to ship one of your queens to? And what type of queen cages do you ship in?

Angi

Because I have one hive that was from a package the other package is going really good and has quite a bit of brood where these guys are bairly drawing out comb and the queen has laid small clutches here and there on several frames.  I think she may need to go as it is spotty at best.

Angi, I would give that queen a little time that you think is questionnable.  Maybe there isn't as many young bees to look after lots of brood and they just need to have a few more hatch out to feel that they can increase their colony numbers, like the other colony is doing.  Wait a couple of weeks and see then.  Beautiful and wonderful day in this great life.  Cindi

the thing is her laying is spotty a chunk here a chunk there on parts of the comb on several combs all over the deep. Not a clutch here and one on the other side. but in the cornors on the sides. not in the middle and not in a set pattern. The other one is going much faster and doing much better.

Angi, I think that Bud1 calling you Miss is just the way that the folk in his part speak.  It seems that that terminology is used alot.  I have listened on Ventrillo to Bud1 and he says that to me too.  I think he said something about it being a respect thing in the way that they talk or something like that.  Have a great and wonderful day, Cindi

I just love being called Miss Annette. It makes me feel very good and it is respectful. I appreciate how Bud speaks to women.  Just my opinion.

Annette, I know exactly what you mean, that is really respectful, kind of old-fashioned talk, and I love it too, hee, hee.  Best of this wonderfully great day, more to come.  Cindi

 The way I see it the only expensive queen is the one that does not produce. If she lays well and the bees that hatch have a good temperment and are hard working then she was worth what ever I pay for her. Which at this time was $18.00. :-D
