I see no QCs more like cups and drone brood . Bees make them all the time. Did you see the queen?
You have young larva so I bet your queen is healthy I love bee pics. Thank you good luck.

judging by the amount of brood on the frames, and where located, the cell is most likely a supercedure cell. Do all of your frames have spotty brood pattern as these?

You may want to consider replacing the queen. The first pic looks good, but the others show way too many drone cells scattered about. Normally drone cells will be in groups if they are planning to raise drones, not scattered about in a shotgun pattern like you see here. My guess is that the queen has some problems.

As a noobee I've had little luck spotting the queen. replacing her would be difficult. I'm just going to ride it out and see what happens. Very interesting regardless.
