sweet this is good news because this is my first colony and it was a swarm!!!!!!! I'm glaf to hear good vibes
Not to dampen your vibes, but a swarm doesn't mean survivor feral. Yes they were feral, but could be a swarm from another beekeeper. So, that queen you have could be from a queen breeder way down south. A colony that has been feral for a year or more is what I consider a survivor. Cut-out where the owner knows how long they have been there is the best place to get survivor stock.
