Are These Emergency Queen Cells?


At the top is a picture of one of the frames in Colony 1 that just seems to be a mess: but are those emergency queen cells really? A number of the tops broke off of some of them when I lifted the frame. Would there be so many?

The bottom is a close up, trying to show you what one of the bigger (not broken) cells is like. I could not find the queen anywhere.
