Re: Pretty disappointed in the nucs I bought
Yep, I have always bought my nucs from Lincoln Sennett (Swan's Honey, Albion) and that's the way they have always come- packed with 4 frames of [capped and open] brood, 1 honey and a *proven* laying queen.

Maybe I'm spoiled from dealing with someone like Lincoln- he's always been great to deal with and learn from, offered to let me come and work with him to learn more, and even went out of his way to do me a personal favor that resulted in me getting a job after being out of work for two years. Anyone I talk to around here, that wants to learn about bees or buy bees, I send them to him.
