Only one worker and moving

Hey my worker hatched about 2 weeks ago and I forgot to ask but I only have one worker.... the reason is because the queen only layed one egg. I eventually grew up and hatch two weeks ago. Why though?

2: also since she only has one egg and they say to move your colony into a nest at 20 workers what should I do?

Ps: it's Formica Subcericia
Formica subsericea: 1 worker
Tetramourium Immigrans: (soon to be colony)
solenopsis molesta: (soon to be colony)

It can be normal for just one worker. Place a piece of drinking straw through the cotton on the end of the tube and place it in an outworld. Feed the colony in there. Raise the colony in the testube
