    Default Queen cell damaged?

    I accidentally damaged a queen cell last week that was not sealed, (Couple of swear words but i left it to see what will happen) but this week the same cell is sealed and damage repaired, is this normal and could she successfully emerge and mate?

    So long as the larvae wasn't damaged or infection introduced they can repair the wax as good as new.
    Not that I'd advocate it, but I have heard of people opening the side of queen cells to check on the queen inside.
