I'd say, leave them alone this time and observe. When we use a push in cage they are 1/2 a medium frame size. That gives us a better chance of placing over capped brood, nectar, and empty cells. The darker the capped brood the faster they will emerge into the cage for you. We also try to place the cage in the middle where all the bees are.
I like this method for high dollar breeder queens. :th_thumbsupup:
