    This is typical. Queens will lay in comb that is 1/4" deep and the workers will finish drawing it as the larvae developes.

    yup most queens of any breed does this, ford you need to flip a coin,,,, you either will tolerate the aggravating for honey production or you will pinch her head off and take a chance on what they raise or what queen you intro to this hive???? just my 2 penny's worth!!!

    I think you're right Ted. I think I will hang on to her for all the entertainment she gives me! Her production is amazing. I will keep you posted.

    She sounds pretty awesome to me. It seems like your Russians need to be kept busy, or they get aggro. I would just keep splitting when the hive gets too big to be kept busy.
