Re: New inexperienced queen or laying worker?
it could be a new queen. It could be laying workers. From what you've said, I think the chances are good it's a new queen. Laying workers lay lots of eggs everywhere, you'll see more than two per cell and they would be scattered around all over. A new queen will contain them within an area like queens do, and sometimes at first they do lay a couple per cell. The only way to know is to see the queen, or give it time and see what develops.
Live life with gusto, having no regrets, neither for what you have done, nor for what you have not done.
