    Default Walkaway: when should I check for queen cells?

    I did a walk away split 8 days ago.
    How long before queen cells appear?

    I want to check to see if they have started the process and if not then I will give them another frame of eggs.

    Thanks! I just checked and there are 4 cells on one frame, 3 on another.
    It was also good to see the ladies feeding on the small pollen patty I put in and gobbling the sugar.

    You're at day 12 so no rough handling. They should start emerging around 4 days from now possibly 3 if the weathers been hot.
