When selecting a breeder queen, what should be the ratio of drone versus worker brood produced by that queen? Some colonies seem to have much more drone brood than others. Some that already have large amounts of drone cells will continue to draw more when given foundationless frames. Some colonies have almost no drone brood.
I haven't been at this long enough to know when the amount of drone brood makes a queen unsuitable as a breeder.
A second part of this is that I have been using foundationless frames for a number of years. That results in a mixture of drone cells and worker cells on the same frame. When putting together a new hive, I have not been paying much attention to the amount of drone cells in the drawn comb. I don't know if the presence of a large amount of drawn drone cells will cause the queen to lay "too many" drones.
