    I have few drones but quite a bit of capped drone drood in my hives so I would say it will start in 2-3 weeks.

    I have just a few drones flying but saw quite a bit of capped drone last week. The girls are building nicely so weather permiting will start grafting end of next week. I agree with Oblib - probably have a couple of weeks yet to get ready.
