Pollen

Forgive me if I have missed any discussion on the topic of pollen. I am new to the site.
From what I've read pollen is a way bees get some of the vitals of life. Therefore it is logical to me that I feed pollen to my new package bees when they arrive in April. Is this the correct thinking?
If I am going to feed pollen, then I think I should buy the fresh pollen from Brushy Mountain. What say you...anybody?
My third question is when to start and how long to supplement with pollen?
Thanks,
Jess

Thank you, honeyman. That was kind of my thought, except I was wondering about the new colony and if they might need a "boost". Since I am already at the beginnings of blooms here, by April things will be in full swing, so I am going to go with your opinion.
By the way KA9CTT looks suspiciously similar to a call sign. I am KE5SXN, although I am not currently on the air...yet.
