Probably unfertilized Queen question

34 days ago I made a spilt, I broke queen cells in day 13 after the spilt and let about 4 queens walk into the hive at the end of the day. This was the first check. I found the queen, she was super nervous running over the frame. I checked all the frames and I've found no eggs, no larvea and no capped brood.

What to do now? It kinda looked like she was fertilized with a big bum. But no brood at all is super worrying. Should I kill her and give a new frame with open brood so they can make a new queen? Should I give her a little more time? The bees were quiet and friendly, not acting super queenless…

Thanx for reading, I'm looking forward to any advice!
