My queen ant eggs aren't hatching! NEED HELP SOON!

I've had 9 Iridomyrmex Bicknelli (they're australian ants) queen ants for about 7 weeks now since they laid eggs. I dont know why but none of them have even hatched into larvae yet! I thought at first they may be infertile but I would expect that at least one of them would hatch and they seem normal sized. I also thought that maybe the queens were eating the larvae as soon as they hatch but I check every week and I would of been able to at least one larvae. I hope you can help! Thnx.
"Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest." Proverbs 6:6-8
