Hello my name is Mary and I'm a first time beekeeper. I started my hive on 5/19/13 just over 2 weeks ago. I open my hive today and would like to share a few pictures to see if things are looking normal. I did not see my queen today, however I did see her just over 1 week ago when I opened the hive for the first time. Today I have quite a few cells that are protruding and I' not sure if this is normal. I have attached one picture where you can see 2 of the protruding cells very clearly. My first thought is that they are queen cells however I'm not experienced enough to know. All experiences eyes would be appreciated. THANK YOU!!!
