5 days since hiving the packages. Both queens released and spotted. Doubt I would have seen them if they were not marked. Plenty of comb and eggs. People aren't kidding when they say the eggs can be difficult to spot.

Felt bad about removing a 5x9 piece of comb built around the queen cage but, it was in between frames and I understand it had to go. Will wire it into a frame so their work isn't wasted.

The bees were pretty well behaved. 3 puffs of smoke per hive and then a bottle of sugar water was used when they started lining up at the frames looking at me.
