First virgin queen in colony of year to take a stole around nest and she looks like shes going to be as red as her mother queen :)
She's still a callow ish but bright yellow like head like the super majors and yellow gaster
and her thorax has a tint of yellow which may also turn a ting of red..

If I get drones in this colony. As the larvae still have not turned to pupae yet.
I may try and inter bread them and just breading the red ones and hope there next gen colony have red workers
As I have a feeling the red queen in this colony may have mated with a dark queen's colony drone, So I'll try and cherry pick
the red ones and see if they will mate.
