    Easy to find the queen. Cordovans tend not to shut down as well during winter. Personally i like them very much. The ones I have are not tempermental. I run Stock from Russell Apairies

    I thought Cordovan was just a color mutation? I know one of my queens is half anyways, fairly easy to work with.

    Cordovan is a color trait any type of bee can be selected to have it. But I do see a difference in wintering from Cordovan to none Cordovan they tend to not do as well in the colder areas. But they are pretty girls for shure.

    Agreed I soured on Cordovans years ago when wintering in the North I I bought 100 and a year later they were pretty much all gone. I still haven't gotten over my Cordovan "racism".
