I'm afraid not.
Being as he's a cross breed I wont be using him for breeding as his progeny will be a mixture.
Shame really as he is a handsome chap.
Unfortunately man hasn't been clever enough yet to breed hens that only lay eggs that hatch into hens (females).
The honey bee on the other hand has been doing it for millions of years.
When a queen bee lays an egg she has the ability to either fertilise it or not.
Fertilised eggs will turn into female worker bees or new queens, depending on how they are reared.
If she doesn't fertilise the egg it turns into a drone (male).
It's called parthenogenesis.
