new queens in the making

973 2
One hive is queenless. Found 5 queen cells getting ready to be capped. Pulled the top bars with 4 of them to a nuc and left one in the mother hive. Once capped, I will separate into 4 different mating nucs and hope to get at least 3 queens out of the mix. This will be my first year trying to raise a few queens.
