    Hi all,
    I did a split and had both halves make a new queen. I was able to watch one of the queens emerge on the 5th of this month, I was wondering what is the timeline for her to go out mate then start laying?
    I checked the hive yesterday and I saw a queen but no eggs. So that would make it 10 days from emerging.
    What am I looking at?
    Thank you.

    It depends on the weather but 14days I think is about average.The queen may have already mated just not started laying eggs yet.

    I always figure 14 days until she will be laying.
