You should be fine. The only ones that fly are the foragers. Your new hive is full of nurse bees that will keep the brood warm. The foragers all went back to the original hive. Over the next week you will see more flying as the nurse bees age into foragers.

Throw some 1:1 on and check for queen cells Sunday since you are letting them make a queen. If there are cells, leave 'em alone until the same day as your split next month. Ex, split 5/5 look for eggs & brood 6/5.
