new hive - normal behavior?
I'm new to beekeeping and installed my package two weeks ago. Checking the hive today, I'm not sure I have any eggs/brood and couldn't find my queen. I see some capped cells aorund the edges of frames...but they are capped with a very thin, white material..so I think they may be honey instead of brood? The bees have been bringing in a lot of nectar and pollen, so I wasn't too worried until today.
In one of my middle frames, in the center of the frame, the bees are building three queen cells. Would they do this if their new queen was there/doing her job?
