For some reason, every time I tried to swap the 2 pics above, they wouldn't. They are supposed to be in opposite places lol. The blurry top one is supposed to be the 2nd pic about how big her brood patch is but oh well...they are still good pics of my gals :-)

:-) They are doing great! I have actually just finished them an out world last night. I have counted at least 8 pupae right now and once they start eclosing I will give them their new out world. It should be the perfect size for as many workers as there will be. I'm hoping to have at least 25 or more workers by the end of the year. She's definitely got a nice size brood pile. Thanks for asking

For some reason it's saying one of my photos isn't found so I'm going to try and repost it. It's actually the better of the two picks in the previous post.

Her brood pile has grown some since this picture was taken also :-)
