    sorry I didn't mention age, standing up straight is I think for around 3 days, after that they sort of fall over and start to form a C if I remember right larvae stage is at 8 days with capping to follow soon after that, chime in guys and gals if I screwed that up

    I take it you are talking about grafting? not up with that yet, but I think you graft larvae not eggs

    I have a cell grid but have not used it yet. My understanding is you leave the Queen in the cup cage 3 days then set the cups in a starter colony. Is that how you have done it?

    Seems you get oodles of eggs..the question is which to use.

    How do you plan to re introduce your Queen? I assume as she remains in her hive, albeit isolated, you can just let her out of the cage.

    How easy was it to get her in and out of the cup cage?

    Make sure the cage is closed properly, it's quite frustrating to come by a few days later and realize the queen is out laying in the hive, and not in the cage. Especially if you didn't think of bringing grafting tools along just in case...

    How long until these eggs become larvae after being laid? Seems like they've been tiny rice grains for 2-3 days?

    Under normal condition:
    At the 3rd day, these eggs are still egg form.
    At the 4th day, they are larvae--C shaped. <<--Now is the time to do grafting or transfer
    these cups into the cell builder.
    With cooler weather they may take up to 8 to 10 days. I once put a frame of comb outside
    not knowing that there were eggs in it. After 5 days, (3+5)=8 they still hatched inside the
    hive when I put the frame back . So from 3 to 5 days they are still egg stage when temp. is cooler outside.
    I luv bee source!

    You sure they didn't clean out the dead eggs, lay new ones, and that's what you saw hatched?
