Not a laying worker?

Nuc#1 Checked the queen cells. The where ripped open from the sides suggesting that another queen,or laying worker did it. I ended up finding a queen in the hive with a very small cluster of brood. Seems like what I really observed was an overactive queen instead of a laying worker. Oddly enough, she is not laying many eggs. there is some larva at various ages... a few capped cells, but lots of open comb.
