The two colonies I have in Talus's from THA are doing really well. Both have eggs, and I'm looking forward to the first batch of workers. I bet they are too.
I have another queen of this type in a found chamber by ByFormica. I can't see any eggs in this one, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have any. My view into her nest is obscured by condensation, and the nest itself is white. The next time I buy one of these it'll probably be grey so I can see the brood.
The 4th queen of this type I have is in a "dirt box" (as Terry likes to call it) made by Drew. I really like this style of formicaria, but once she dug a chamber, I haven't seen her again. I don't know if she's alive or dead. She appears to have not eaten anything since I put her in there because the cricket I put in there is untouched, and I have no reason to believe she has ever come out of that nest once she dug it. She dug it in a way where I literally have no view of her, so I'm just hoping she has laid some eggs and is doing well. I hope she comes out to eat soon.
