So I just tried my first round of grafting with a queen derived from Michael Palmer's stock. I got 7/8 takes in a very small but strong starter colony. I need about 8 mated queens for the year and have 4 mating nucs. Do I need to make a finisher colony for my tiny goal, or can I just keep the cells there until day 14?

Thanks for the imput. Although I do not know if I will do this again, this particular colony was hopelessly queenless as the queen was caged, removed, and then a very expensive breeder unsuccessfully introduced :-( Sooo....They went queenless for 7 days after being eggless for 7 days.
