We did see the queen in 0318 Hive - it's always exciting (nerd alert!).
The weather has been cold and very windy so I have not checked the hive. Will do tomorrow (the 18th) since the temps will be in the 70's or higher. I'm still continuing to feed all the hives. They are slowly taking the sugar syrup.
April 20, 2018 Update - On Wednesday, I opened 2017 Hive, the queen was still in her little box so I took the screened top off and she went inside the hive. I was more careful when opening and releasing since I lost a queen last year - didn't want to make the same mistake again.

These are photos from the internet. Just wanted to have an example of what the queen cage looks like and also a marked queen.
