I have just pull some grafted cells from two different hives, I grafted on the 23rd.

In the cells from hive 1 most of the bases are covered with royal jelly, and are bigger.

In hive 2 there is little royal jelly visible and when cells are tipped over the pupa drops in and out of its position.
Is a larva that is loose in its cell doomed? Or do they have a chance. I am going to stock my nucs with larva from Hive 1, and have enough but I would like to know if the larva in hive 2 are viable. The cells are otherwise healthy in appearance.
