Some of the locals and I were talking about refilling winter dead-outs. What would you do, buy a package in early April or buy a nuc three weeks later at the end of April? Personally, I like nucs, but one of the prevailing points is both will be at the same point at the end of April, so it seems to boil down to the availability and price. I've also had some packages reject their queen so the nuc has the advantage there.

Any thoughts and opinions on what you might prefer?
