    Checked a swarm today for the queen. No queen to be found but there were queen cells just started full of eggs. Thats right each cell of the half dozen or so had from 3 to over 6 eggs in them.
    I think it is pointless at this time to try to save them but for giggles and an expermint I gave them a nice frame full of fertile eggs to possiable make a queen from.

    I hope that will turn them around but does not sound promising, good luck with them.

    I've got the answer. It's so cold in your bee yard the queen lays several eggs in each cell to keep each other warm. :thumbsup: Jack

    NO big deal. Her aim just isnt to good. Takes her 5 or 6 tries to get an egg into the center of the cell
