I had a very strong hive last year, made a split from it into a nuc and gave it a queen that I raised. It managed through the cold months, but didnt have good egglaying when the other hives were loading the brood boxes, I found the queen and seen she had an injured leg, so removed her from the hive. There were a few eggs larva remaining. I inspected few days later but didnt see any queen cells. I pulled a mediocre frame from another hive with eggs, gave it a few days still no queencell, but wait there were a few eggs on the donated frame, and it has been more than 3 days. What's up, dead eggs? No eggs on other frames yet. Searched real hard and found a new queen. She must have came from the eggs early on and not the donated frame. I just missed the queencell someplace. OK, still not a strong egglayer. What to do with this nuc box and few frame of bees? I must have a poor queen line in this box or what? Should I swat this queen or give her some more time to turn on her egglaying?
