I installed a package 11 days ago (mid April) on 8 frames of drawn comb with resources and have no larva or capped brood. Note: I used a push in cage & released the queen 4 days later.

Is it possible the queen became chilled or damaged in the push in cage or do I have an unmated queen? (The evenings were in the 40's)

Welcome!

It's possible that you do have a non-laying queen. However, I'd wait another few days or a week. Sometimes it just takes the queen a while longer to get going.
