I'm using a frame style queen introduction cage, similar to the one Brushy mountain sells. How long should I keep the queen in the cage before opening the gate and releasing her ?

I built a half dozen of them this year. Kept the queen in them for three days, inspected to be sure no aggressive behavior, then opened the gate to release her. It worked fine.
