Cordovan Italian Queen from Koehnen Apiaries. My experience with these blond bees is they produce a lot of brood and have a super calm personality.
Pickup in Mount Vernon Ohio.
These queens are mated and marked.
Message from Koehnen Apiaries:
We've been producing Italian Queens since the 30s, however, our Cordovan breeding project began in approximately 1975. Our Italians have been exclusively lighter colored Cordovans ever since, with color ranging from light yellow to rust. They have many fine qualities; the queens are very prolific, they are known for their rapid spring buildup and they are extremely gentle. They are proven to be very hygienic. Two thirds of our production is this Italian.
