?#1 How long does it take the queen to get big once she has mated?

?#2 Will she get big if she does not get mated?

?#3 what are the chances of the bees rearing a queen from a frame of brood/eggs from another colony if they have already started super cede cells from the drone larvae?

I saw a bee that was not  marked like all the others. She was slimmer and her abdomen was tapered, no fuzz on the thorax. Other than that about the same size. The other nuc the same age has 2 and half to 3 frames of brood. This one has about a half frame and it all looks dome. I added a frame of brood, all stages, to it. Smiley d2
