Buckfast Queen...

I checked the blue nuc just now and the Buckfast queen has been freed and is cruising around the hive. They had made 4 queen cells between Thursday and now and the new queen had chewed through the side of all of them. For good measure I destroyed them completely.

I also ordered another Sunkist Cordovan Queen earlier today from Russell's just to be sure I get a replacement soon. Even though the other 2 hives accepted the new queens I feel like I may have tried to re queen them too early and they rejected the Sunkist. If the folks at Russell's disagree I'll gladly accept a refund. ;^)
