Not sure how it could be done due to the logistics of it, but can the queen be marked while still in the cage before being released?

I wouldn't want to attempt it. There is a little tool you put the queen in and push a plunger up until the queen is against the screen of the tool. It hold her immobile while being marked. That is the easiest and surest way to mark one.
Thanks Bee Catcher
