Hello guys, after some 3-4 months of waiting one of my queen laid her first egg! I guess hibernation is over.

What now? What should I do?
I'm guessing in waiting for it to born and give some food,
maybe later relocate them to a bigger (still smallish) formicarium.

Leave them in the test tube until there are maybe 15 workers. But yes, feed them after the nanitics come.
