    Exclamation Queen Size?

    I recieved my new queen today. My current queen is going bad and only has one frame of brood about 1/4 filled out.
    The new queen is almost the same size as the attendant bees in the cage. I am not very comfortable placing this queen in my hive because her size is way smaller than any queens I have ever encountered.

    Should I be concerned or should I go ahead and give her a try?

    Go for it. She will likely be of reduced size when she is not laying. She will probably get bigger.
