Hi 6/15 I killed my queen on my observation hive. Watched 4 emergency cells be made.
Virgin hatched 6/28, right on time. Then yesterday 7/6 she's laying! Not sure when she started, she's been going through the motions for several days. She's laid nearly 1 frame of eggs. ( not worker eggs, they're single and centered perfectly on the bottom. ). On top of that she was raised by bees that cover only one medium frame!! Note the eggs in the pix!

Nice, now that is a beautiful black queen. :) Your workers look to be the same coloration as mine with the exception that my queens are a yellow color.
