My hive yesterday had no eggs, larvae or capped brood at all. I was actually trying to find the queen (and didn't); the hive was very mellow, and I didn't see any queen cells or cups even, but it seemed kinda weird.
They're well-ventilated, and have room... I'm hoping they didn't stealth-swarm on me. The queen's marked, but there was a good population to hide in. Maybe not quite as populous as last time I was in.
Isn't it a little early for the queen to have knocked off entirely (at least 21 days ago, mid August)?
