Hi. I have 5 ripe queen cells in a queenless nuc. If I'd like to have the 5 queens, what should I do. I was thinking of cutting them out of the foundationless frame and keeping them indoors till they hatch. Would that work or do they have to be left in the nuc? Any input would be greatly appreciated.:)

If you have enough hives to do so, then make up 4 more nucs and give each a cell, leaving one in the original. It's not much use to have 5 queens if you don't have bees for them, and they'd not work taking in the house unless you had an incubator for them.
