When she came out of her queen cell, she was looking at fighting to the death with the old queen (we had already moved the old queen to another hive). She is quick!

Today is April 16 and the new virgin queen has not left the hive as of yet to take her maiden flight to breed with numerous drones (males) that are waiting for virgin queens to mate with. The normal time from emerging from her queen cell to taking flight is usually 10 days. When she has finished mating, she will then return to our observation hive and start laying eggs, this was some kind of wonderful, truly amazing
