:thumbsup: My 2009 Russian queen wintered well; the colony was efficient with use of stores. It was the only hive out working in the 50 degree weather during the early pollen flow.

I split it this spring because they were building up fast.

The daughter queen is laying a beautiful brood pattern and is in the second deep now. They are calm and easy to work.

The half that kept the original queen is brooding in two deeps now and is fillng a honey super. I'm raising a few extra daughter queens from her to use this fall if I need them.

Your 2010 queens (in nucs) are both are going strong.
