I agree it's a skill to find the queen. I kept her in the little nuc for 3 days, the candy was eaten most of the way, and the bees moved when I pushed on them. My guess is they have to settle before they let go and move when you push.
I popped the cork on the free side, left it there a half hour, went back to get the cage and she was walking around on the outside. I watched as the bees moved out of her way, all facing the star, and she went below. I then tried to get the bees out of the way, dodging the guards, brushing bees, and finally got the cage to see if she had gone inside again for some reason.
Satisfied she had gone in the frames, I took the remaining 5 bees and the cage to the another hive and set it there. Push comes to shove, hold the cage over the inner cover hole. The bees act like a dog when "Mama comes home" when queenless for 24 hours. Queenright hives go crazy and try to kill the cage.
