    Re: Queen

    I think I have the same question you are asking. Phrased a bit different... Will a hive place a drone egg in a queen cup and attempt to make a queen from that egg? Is that what you are wondering?

    Re: drone brood in the third box?

    I did a hive check and found brood in the bottom of a seven stack hive. Not happy to say the least. Drone brood on the same frame as worker brood. Not a laying worker in my case.
