Unfortunately I don't have capped brood on a mini nuc frame.I wonder if the weather has been rather cool to cold. Have you tried to insulate/wrap up the hive for a while to keep them warmer than usual? Or add some capped brood with some attendant bees?
Yes we made this nuc up in the end of April that's why we were checking on her.Assuming you have grated the queen, she looks stalwart. You have done a good job. After sticking the queen cell to a nuc, here in the US, we leave them alone two to three weeks before checking her egg-laying.
