Dual queen package??

In my post "New Beehives!" on April 20th, I suspected I dropped the queen during hiving process. I now believe I got a package with a caged queen (normal) and a LOOSE QUEEN inside the bee cluster (two queens in one package). That loose queen ended up in the grass after shaking the bees during hiving. I guess I must now have a dead queen, and a live, and maybe hurt, queen. We'll see how that hive does.
