A friend in our club ordered a bunch of queens and had a couple left over. They have been in a battery box for about 6 days now. It is raining today so it will probably be another day before I can get them into a split. Think after 7 days of traveling/sitting she will be okay?

If they're still alive and haven't been chilled - they have a good chance of being okay. If they were chilled, there might be a problem. Consider that not all queens are 100%, even those that are introduced immediately.

It's also nearly impossible to know, if or when a queen will fail. So, queen producers can do their best work, and factors outside their control can still spoil the product.
