When the virgin queens come out they will have their own bees to look after them. The virgin queens will fly out to get mated , make sure you do not mark the young queens at this stage as birds can see a marked queen and catch her, only mark the queen later when she is settled in the hive. 1 side of the hive is colour coded with white and the other side is yellow , this help, s the queen to fly back into the right place.
