2013 Queens

5670 Views 23 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  cheezer32
Just getting the word out early, I will have a limited number of queens available starting may 1st-15. These are northern breed queens that have done great for me in the past and are raised in larger mating nucs to provide a proven pattern (I am using 4 half length deep frames 2 full deep frame equivilent for now on).

This is how I am going to sell these this year, if you are interested send me an e-mail at [email protected] and give your name, contact, number of queens you are interested in, and approximate time you would want the queens delivered. (ie early june, late june etc.) and I will put you on a list. First come first serve I will call down the list as queens are available and fill orders to those who still want them, once I call or e-mail you and confirm your shipment and order amount I will send out the queens with a receipt, once you have received them you can then send payment through check/money order.

Reminder: Just because you e-mail you are interested in a certain date that does not mean that I will for sure have queens at that time (remember I am just generating a list and calling through it), and like-wise if I call or e-mail and you no longer need them that is perfectly fine as well please do not wait untill the last minute for me to call if you are in dire need of a queen, at the very least send me another e-mail and I will try to point you in the direction of another breeder who would have what you are looking for on hand.

Queens are $15.00 per queen with $10.00 S&H per order. (Any amount of queens still just $10.00)

They will ship in JZBZ cages with attendants.

PS: I am trying to be customer first on sending the queens first to make sure you get them as soon as possible, if I problems receiving payments after I have sent out queens I will change my policy, please don't make do that!

Any and all questions are welcome here and to my e-mail/PM. Thanks

I highly suggest you rethink your shipping before payment policy. Having spent years collecting payment for items that I sell at no profit. I am telling you no question you are making a headache for yourself. there are many people you cannot collect from prior to shipping. once the goods are shipped you have no recourse. No one not even your credit card company or pay pal will be able to do anything for you. It would not hold up in court if it came to that. So unlessd you are willing to simply loose queens outright and pay the shipping to have been ripped off. I suggest you don't.

Making it easy tends to draw out the worst of the crowed also. you end up with every person that cannot make the grade to be some other suppliers customer. like those with money.
Well Cheezer, I am very glad that everyone proved me wrong. Well done. Glad the year turned out successful and all my best in the coming season. And that is from someone that hopes to enter the market myself. But don't worry I doubt I can do much more than fill some of the need in the local market.
