Here are some pics of my primary Mother Queen, MQA and my first queen, raised in 2011 - she just started laying, today.

Since it is almost exactly two weeks since the first queen of 2011 emerged and she has just begun laying, my guess is that she found some drones to mate with, otherwise I would expect she would need another week or two before she would begin laying as a drone-layer. I'll need to wait about seven more days to find out for sure.
