    Default Queen just now laying eggs

    I have two hives. I'm a beginner and I installed them two weeks ago today. I was told by my apiary to watch the queen Last week because she had not laid yet. I now see tiny eggs. Not a whole lot. It looks like she just started. My other hive has larvae in various stages of development and a lot of capped brood. Should I do anything different for the queen that just started or just check on her in a week?

    Nothing special. If your sure she is laying eggs the best thing you can do is leave them a lone for a little while and let her get going. Give her 8-9 days then do a quick inspection for larva and brood pattern. If the next inspection looks ok you should be good to go.
