I have been growing some young hives pretty fast, feeding them. ...........
I buy every year 2-3 queens from commercial raiser. I have now 18 colonies. I raise also every year 20-30 queens and take eggs from those commercial queens. The loss of queens from hatched to egg laying is about 50%. Many things happen. Many is died in the safe cage.
Many accicents happen before new, egg laying queens are in the hive. If queen seems bad, I throw it away.
I renew 80% my queens every year. New queens are good egg layers and they swarm less than old ones.
It is dangerous to take queens from swarming hives. They inherit they swarming habits. It is bad for honey yield. I may take they own raised queen but I change it when I get better one.
If mother is good why not you take daughter from it?
I have kept bees 42 years. To raise queens is one of the most interesting point. Just to get honey is not interesting any more, for many years. It must be something new every time happening that I am motivated to do that routine work like take honey away and sell it.
