Yippppeeeee :Dancing: I guess the third time was the charm. We had a hive of very stubborn laying workers and per Iddee's suggestion we put in a frame of eggs to see if they would raise a queen..... we ended up doing this 3 times. We looked in on them a little over a week ago and I was disappointed to see no worker brood again, but figured we'd give them one more chance.

Look in today and see a very pretty young queen taking her job of straightening those bees out seriously. She's got 3 full frames of worker brood and is steadily going from cell to cell making sure to fill each one with a nice new egg! :D :yahoo:
