I had my observation hive swarm a while ago and watched the appearance of the new queen. In due time she commenced laying in a pretty good pattern. Now when it came time to cap the brood the frames had wall to wall frames of drone brood obviously from an unmated queen. Now to change out the queen in an observation hive is not so easy so I just let it slide as I had many other more important things to do. About 3 weeks later there was more capped brood but flat like worker brood so I waited until the flat brood started to emerge and they were worker brood and now all the brood being capped is worker brood. So this queen started off her career as a drone layer and then somehow figured it all out and started to fertilize the eggs after a time went by. Makes me think that we may be a little hasty when we pinch that drone laying queen. Anybody ever come across this before.
