Update on Top Bar Hive Split and Queen Situation

Well, I checked the bees on Tuesday. The new split does not have a new queen. The bees broke open the queen cell and destroyed the new queen. I will hopefully be able to purchase a local queen this weekend and get them going with a new queen. The original hive may have a new queen, but there are no eggs. There was a noticeable difference between the two hives. The hive that is known to be queenless is very loud and the bees are buzzing like crazy inside the hive. The hive I did the split from is very calm and appear to be happy.
