Queen Cell Check

Day 6 following the split, so queen cells should be present and mostly capped by now.

Here's one that is still uncapped, you can just see the larva.

And in the other hive, here are the results of my inexpert marking.  Anyway, the bees haven't rejected her.  This hive is full of bees since all the foragers have returned here.  We added another box as things are getting pretty full.  Baited the bees up by swapping one of the frames from below.
