Both queens laying

Today I examined both my hives which I had introduced new queens to and they both have capped brood cells.  One I could see through the viewing window and the other, which doesn't have a window, I just turned the hive upside down and there they were.  What a relief as I had released the queens myself into the hives without having the bees chew them out.  I think turning the hives upside down is much less stressful on the bees.  They never get excited and I have never been attacked and can even move the comb around to see whats going on.
