Umm... Where’s the second egg?

Hello everyone! My Camponotus subbarbatus queen just laid an egg three days ago and has been tending to it very closely, but shouldn’t she have laid a second egg by now, or am I just being to impatient... Here’s a picture of her.Image

Sometimes you just have to be patient and she'll most likely lay another egg. My queens to about 3 weeks until they laid eggs and they're supposed to lay eggs in like 3-4 days after capture. Try to only check on her once a week and soon enough she'll have more eggs. ;)
