I inspected the remaining four queen cells in the cell builder hive and found that they had hatched nicely into queen cages as planned. They look very good. I made four queen mating nucs adding one frame partially filled with capped brood and one frame with honey and pollen to each nuc from the cell builder and then releasing a queen into each nuc. Since the nucs were made up from the cell builder they readily accepted the queens directly.
