The reason for this was because they did not get past the egg stage, and some were already dying. Once they were added to the other colonies (already with workers), some were getting attacked, while others weren't. Hopefully they will accept the ones that do survive. 

Perhaps the colonies feel they have too many queens when the new ones were added. Even polygynous species will rid themselves of excess queens to conserve resources.
