Hi all. I was just thinking it would be fun to share and see pictures of each other's queen(s), or some of them. If you decide to share please post the breed and/or breeder, if you know that info.

I'll try to get a better picture, but here is one of my only queen. I don't know the breed. Maybe Italian?

Here are two that I've raised. The first one was raised from a hive from Jennifer Berry.

This one is raised from a swarm that superseded the queen. The original source was Italian.

This is a Carniolan from Northern California. She was a replacement after I lost the first one about 10 days after installing.

Two queens home raised from a swarm catch. Both are descended from the same swarm caught queen. Darker one is first generation and lighter one is second generation from a different first generation queen. Breed, mutt. They act like Carnis.
