Due to the bad weather in CA this year, all the package producers are delaying delivery of packages by about 2-weeks. Cal at Tarboo Valley has said this will affect the delivery of our order in some fashion, but the impacts are unclear. The weather may also have some effect on the availability of particular queens. E.g. If you ordered a carni, you may have to settle for an italian or vice-versa. Stay tuned here for more information as it comes out.
Better to get good queens late than bad queens early, I say.
