We were working hives today and found one of the splits didn't have a queen that made it back into the hive (it happens). So a queenless hive but what was weird was it had a couple of queen cells. We dissected the queen cells to find laying workers can lay in a queen cell also....two larvae swimming in royal jelly.....pretty wild! No other brood larvae or eggs laid in the hive.
