So i installed my package on Saturday and I got curious so I took a quick peek and they had released the queen. They had also made quite a bit of burr comb where the queen cage was between two frames so I removed the empty queen cage and burr comb shook of bees then closed it back up is it OK that I did this so soon.

Once the queen is naturally released, I don't think you can be 'too soon' cause you want to fully frame the hive to establish the proper bee space asap or you will have a mess of comb on your hands.

Other than feeding, I wouldn't disturb them for at least 10 days.

thanks for the responses guys that really settles my nerve a little. I cant imagine how much burr there would have been if i had of waited till this weekend they already had made two pieces almost as big as my hand. beekeeping has been a blast so far i like sitting out and counting the bees that have pollen on there legs.
