My queen isn't laying eggs

April 6th I added 2 nucs that had recently been re-queened I was told. Today, May 12th, one of those hives is so packed that I added another box. The other however is looking much like it did when I added it with the exception of new comb, honey, and pollen. Also capped brood and some larvae were present but NO EGGS. I’ll add that I also saw the queen alive and well (undecided). Has anyone had experience with this?

If you saw uncapped brood, your queen was laying eggs between 3 and 8 days ago, so I wouldn’t panic. Eggs can be hard to see, depending on the lighting. Just give it another week and look again. If you see more uncapped brood at that point, she is still laying eggs. :blush:
