If you look closely, difficult with this pic as it isn't very big, there's a bee or two hatching out. Also of note is the empty cells where bees have already hatched have nectar in them; nectar in the brood indicated bees are bringing in honey and there is somewhat of a flow underway. Well at least that's what I was taught...

I run KI Bees here in the Mallee.

They are awesome.

Tend to get a bid broody though...so only give them one deep brood box or you will end up with three deeps full of brood
