We went into a hive of my fathers and the first thing we see is a capped queen cell, and no upcapped brood. Next frame capped brood and a capped queen cell, no uncapped or eggs. Next frame ditto. Following frame has an uncapped queen cell. My father asked could we do anything with the queen cells, so we go looking through the hive for a queen. Two frames later we find a virgin, and she was piping on the frame. She must have just hatched out before we got into the box since the other queen cells appeared to be completely intact. We put her, some brood, honey and pollen in a box with a couple more shakes of bees. Hopefully it will all work out!
