Sorry, but I had no idea where to put this thread.... please move it if in the wrong place! I've been thinking about doing a little "twist" on queen rearing and sales... I have been thinking about running a program with 1 year old queens that come with a detailed report on the history of the queen, and the hives that she had been in possibly with pictures as well. The thing detailed would be stuff like: Graft mother information (who's stock etc), graft date, date transfered into mating nucs, type of mating nucs, what the hive was feed and when and quanitity, notes from every hive inspection that will detail foraging activity, brood amount, aggressiveness etc. how it was overwintered, etc etc etc... I plan for it to be a multiple page report on each queen. The only problem is the price because so much effort would go into raising and noting each queen, as well as making them prove themselves by surviving through a winter, the price will be decently higher than a normal queen. SOOOO... I ask the public what your thought's would be on this? To much? Not realistic? What would you pay for such a queen? Certain note's you would like to see? Or anything else that you think of just throw it out there! Thanks!
