Interesting.  A think that eye color is one of the more common mutations.  Do the drones seem able to see, or are they blind as well?

This was a question on the Journeyman certification exam I just took.  Because drones are haploid, recessive traits are expressed - in a diploid, the recessive trait is covered by a dominant trait.  This mutation is called chartreuse.
