I had fun helping a newbee friend go through her hive yesterday. First time I heard so much and such clear piping! Long-story short-- after scraping off some queen cells I thought it would be interesting to crack one of them open. I did, and out walked the queen! She looked fully formed. I brought her back to my place and added her in a cage to a nuc that didn't queen as hoped. My question-- is she compromised because of my midwifery? I'm guessing only time will tell, but maybe one of you know more.
