Saw something interesting today.
About 3 weeks ago, I trandferred a hive from a 20 frame long hive to a standard two deep vertical hive. I inspected today I saw the original marked queen but she wasn't laying alot. Less than two frames on the bottom super. She has plenty of room and is not honeybound. While I was closing it up, I noticed another queen with an egg sticking out the end of her abdomen.
I also did not see any swarm cells.
The best I can figure is that I either damaged the old queen in the transfer or stressed them out so much, they made a new queen?
Any suggestions of what I should do?
