Re: What to do with/about new queen cells?
Welcome to Beesource!
> In this weaker hive, I have found 3 new queen cells.
Its not unusual for newly hived package bees to build queen cells. They perceive that the lack of brood may be the fault of a "bad" queen, and are preparing for the possibility of replacing her. Often the queen cells will be torn down by the bees before any new queen emerges.
My suggestion is that you do nothing but observe. Removing queen cells, before you have more experience, may lead to a queenless hive.
