If you smoked them before you put them together you could have avoided the fighting. Any bees in a group know bees "not from the group". If they are field bees they tend to fight. The more mixed up they are (more then two sources) the better. The more confusion (shaken in etc.) the better. Some smoke though, smooths things over well.
