Hived new package 13 days ago. After 5 days we checked and the queen was no longer in the screened box, but we are newbies and couldn't see her. We also couldn't see eggs, but we were using new foundation and the bees were just building it out. There were a few eggs in the burr comb around the queen cage.
During the next week we saw a lot of pollen going in and they are drinking syrup.
But today - essentially the end of the second week, we went in and found all the bees on the first five or so frames one side of the hive (ie not centered). Lots of bees. Lots of building on both sides of 3 - 5 frames. Some cells that looked like pollen. Some seemed to have honey glistening in them - BUT almost no visible eggs (I could make our only a few and they were single and centered). Should I be seeing more brood - or is this normal when they have to start fresh on new (crimp wire) foundation???
