    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?

    Thanks

    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.
