Bought this queen from a nearby GAN farmer with a queen, two workers, and 5 brood. I have had them for about two weeks now and very little progress...actually lost three brood sadly. They are currently in hibernation but should be coming out very soon I’ll be sure to update you guys as much as possible with feeding habits, physical activity, and pictures.
