New queens mated and laying

Several of the first grafted larvae are now mated and laying queens, which I recently marked (red) and clipped.  I will wait 8 days until I see a good pattern of flat capped worker brood and depending on how quickly the queen is running out of room to lay, the first nucs will be ready for collection by mid June.
