I put a package in last Saturday and just checked to see if the queen had been released. I saw the queen but no eggs. BTW the package was Italians and the Queen was a Carniolan. Well the bees are building queen cups, could it be that I got an un-mated queen?

I have simular situation, I hived my first pkg May 3rd. Queen was released 3-4 days later. Yesterday was my first complete inspection. (May 20th) I run 9 frames in a 10 frame deep. All but 1&2&9 were drawn with comb and filled with honey. I did not see any eggs or brood that I could recognize. I did see a cell at the top of a frame that was about as big as your little finger nail. I am so new I dont what I saw. Any help with why no brood and the cell I saw? I did not see queen I'm sure I could have missed her.
