I split my two hives two weeks ago and used the resources from the two original to make 5 splits. After inspecting on Friday, I saw some hatched queen cells and found some queens prowling around. I have put in the info into the Beeyard Queen Bee Calendar, but it seems a bit far off to wait another two weeks before these girls are expected to start laying.

Does it really take her around a week to mate, and another to start laying?
