So my queen Camponotus Novaeboracensis have had there first workers hatch about a week ago now and I noticed something weird when I fed them today the queen was the one gathering the honey and bug parts not the workers then she fed the workers just wondering if this was normal I always thought the works would be the ones doing this action

Sometimes the workers are too shy to go and get it themselves especially when they are recently eclosed. And a hungry queen doesn’t have time for her workers to get, she dives in herself. :lol:
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.
