I did another graft today with the help of my other half. The behavior in the cell builder concerns me. It has been a week since I pulled the last graft and I did find some queen cells on a frame. I culled them. What concerns me is that I didn't not see them fanning. No eggs/larvae present. No queen sighted. Have any of you seen them that calm with only cells? They did not jump on the graft immediately. 5ish minutes later there were some checking out the cells.

The cell builder started as a JC Bees cell builder with fully enclosed bees, but since then I have allowed them to start flying, although few are. Hive is still full, with more brood hatching daily.
