I fed them a grub I found which they ate. Still no brood.

Not sure why but the picture is really really tiny. It's as if someone has massively zoomed out of it. :/
Could you try again?
Also it may take some time for the queen to produce more eggs. Unless she is a fire-ant which can spawn hundreds and thousands of eggs per day it may take a few days for that to happen.
Doing some proper research is the best way to start an antcolony.

Colonies:
1 - Messor Barbarus
Founding colonies:
2 - Lasius Niger Colony

I would say they are carpenter ants, maybe camponotus pennsylvanicus.
My current colonies:
Test_o's colony(camponotus novaeboracensis)
the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the shadow ants(formica subaenescens)
The miniature military (formica neogagates)
