Update!!
Eggs have been sighted I repeat Eggs have been sighted
Queen#1 (lobster backs)
She has sadly no eggs and has kept her wings. she is showing more infertile/no eggs laying mood behavior (that was for you batspiderfish)
Queen#2 (the red dragons)
She is my FAVORITE queen right now because she has
~15 eggs
Queens#3
slow but sturdy(like the Romans) this queen is slowly growing her brood pile
~7 eggs

Camponotus novaeboracensis. Nova Eboraca is Latin for "New York". ;)
