It was researched in Ankara, how feeding affect on the quality of reared queens.

* Feeding the hive during rearing affected to acceptance of crafted larvae
* it did not add the size of queen

* hives accepted better 2 days old larva than 1 days old BUT

* 1 day old larvae grew bigger queens than 2 days old

* big queens lay better than smaller
