Introduced queen a week ago, what now?
« on: October 07, 2011, 02:43:28 PM »
Introduced my first bought queen a week ago yesterday, ( Friday ) and she was out of her cage on Tuesday. Now it is Saturday and weather permitting i will have a peek later on today.

Should she be laying and at what stage will the brood be?

Sometimes it takes as long as two weeks, sometimes as short as a few days for her to start laying.
