Perhaps the wings were clipped? Some do that so they don't fly off.
This was my first hive and I watched drone after drone with defective wing syndrome get dragged out of the hive. I had seen the Q the first week but she was always under other bees, another sign of a Q problem. I called the guy who sold me the nuc and he came to see what was wrong. When we found her I could see she had the same defective wings. The hive was full of drones and drone brood. It was not clipped wings.
