That's a hygenic behavior response. Something happened to those pupae. They could have mites, or they could have been damaged or chilled or diseased.

You should take a closer look inside and tell us what you see in the brood chamber.

I see it as a sign of hygenic behavior.  But it may also be hygenic behavior towards mites.  Smiley
