I may have installed my queen wrong.

We are grateful you are here

I may have installed my queen wrong.

I just installed my first two packages yesterday afternoon and I had left my books on my desk at work. Reading through some this morning jarred a detail I might have missed in my excitement. I think I hung the queen cage where the screened side is facing a frame. Do I need to open them up and correct the orientation of the queen cage? It's kind of rainy in Georgia today.

Edit: I went ahead and opened them up. The first cage was hanging so that bees had access to most of the mesh and the candy so I left that one alone. The other hive's queen was a little restricted so I pulled that cage and situated it properly. Both seemed alive and well so I'm hoping that crisis was averted.
