I found a Queen cup on the bottom of my honey frame with some closed drone brood. As I torn it down I noticed it already had jelly inside and upon closer inspection a larvae probably 4 days old is on it. I removed the frame from the brood and am planning to put it in a queenless nuc , my question is since the top of the cell is already damaged. Would it still survive?

Have never seen them repair a damaged queen cell. They will even trash a cell with the slightest dent in it.
