Try Ray Oliveras in Chico and also Big Island Queens as he owns them as well. I've been really happy with his hygenic stock this year. A few of them got moved from my home yard to an out-yard for temperment but it wasn't all that bad (my kids run right in front of my hives at home, I'm picky about temperment here). Other than that they have been superb stock.
