    I ordered a queen from you on 24th March. Not sure how far down your queen list I am, but could you please let me know a few days before posting so that I can make ready. Very interesting to see you use incubators. Are these just standard incubators for when eggs etc, and how do you get correct humidity etc.

    could you please direct me to a link where I can purchase this incubator? I have seen it several times now, but do not know the brand or where it is produced / sold 🙂

    Thanks from Switzerland,
