Hi!
i've read a lot about marking queens but somehow the "traditional" ways require more experience, plus i don't need to really have marked queens.
so i've been wondering how could i mark a queen the easyest possible way? now, i ask you because someone mentioned few months ago he simply applies some ink onto the queen. so..now you know which method interest me the most Smiley
what kind of ink?

HI!
another question about queen marking, but this aint physical marking, it's more of a keeping a record of queen.

what's in your opinion the best way to record queens? probably nothing huh grin

i was thinking of...
K1 (Kolenc-last name of the person who gave me that queen) and 1 as in first now, her daughters would be
K11, K12, K13....
daughters of the K12:
K121, K122, K123

but this would get rather long throu years to come.

what do you think would be the best way, besides NOT keeping a record of queens Smiley
