I'm in Rome, GA. try the market bulletin. Arthur Hudgins in Cedartown sells queens. If you want his number PM me, I don't know if I should post it here, but he is in the Ga. Farmers Bulletin as are several others. Arthur has Italian/Minnesota Hygienics. I drove down and got one in July and she is doing nicely, even dropped her out of the OB hive and she's still laying. $18 each.
