I would check the inactive hive. Just lift the inner cover and quickly peak in. Sometimes when packages are installed, the bees may leave the hive where they were installed and join a more active colony. This will leave the caged queen all alone and she may die with out bees to take care of her. If there are alot of bees in the inactive hive, leave them alone a keep the feeder filled. Check in a week or so to see if the queen is released and laying.
