Hived 2 packages. Both hives behaving differently.
I am a newbee. Hived 1st package Friday. 2nd Sunday. 1st hive instantly calm. 2nd hive appears upset. Is it possible 1st hive is pestering 2nd? I released the queens in both this morning since they have been together for nearly a week so I know they are not queenless... then again, I wouldn't know what "normal" behavior would be for a new package.

seems normal, they are bees.. colonies that you think are identical can vary a lot
