I've got two drawn out deeps with honey stores from a hive that died over the winter. I want to install the package into this hive. Should I install them into both deeps right away or just one then add the other later like you would an undrawn deep?

only one --- you want to keep the bees close enough to keep the brood warm -

but she will have layed eggs in most frames within about 2 weeks -

but it will be 3 weeks before the poputation starts to grow -- at that point add the second box --- keep feeding though
