Superseded and two live queens outside

    I had a 3 week+old package supersed and caught the new queen before she killed all the other queens, there were 4 empty cells and 5 capped. I then moved the frame with the cells to a queenless hive hoping that they would help one emerge. the next morning I found 2 queens on the ground but not moving in front of the superseded hive. it was 40 that night but they looked ok, I brought them inside to warm up and they started to move around in about an hour. I put one in a cage and put her in the queenless hive but the bees are not paying any attention to her or the cells. should I just release her ? she seems too weak without them attending to her.
