Burr comb on queen cells are they still viable? Making up nucs tomorrow for the queen cells.. just need to know if I could candle them or what not? Wanna make sure I don’t over or undermake nucs. Thanks in advance.
Ps I did search for a post like this but found bickering and not much info on post.

I have found that queen cells like that are viable. So long as I don't break them open when I break much of the comb off them before installation.

Nick, watch this video from Kamon Reynolds that addresses your question visually.

Thanks for the comments and thanks for the video! They turned out to be all duds..I think when I had them in the cell builder the temperature dropped and I didn’t think the weather would change so fast! Always next time.. love and learn!
