Well that came as a bit of a surprise. Went for a quick peek today see how they were getting on and found 5-6 queen cells. The suprise is that the hive is far from full, they're only across 8 frames at the moment and have a super on for additional play room.

I was intending to do a split if I could help it, but looks like I am now
