New queen gone or not laying?

We are grateful you are here

New queen gone or not laying?

I have 2 hives as my first year bee keeper. One hive is doing fine. The other hive has an issue. I wasn’t able to find the queen or see any capped brood, only drone cells and everything else was open or honey. I ordered a mated queen and installed her on the afternoon of July 26, the video is from when I put her in. Today is the afternoon of August 3. I just did an inspection and did not see her, nor did I see any eggs laid. She was not in the cage, that was empty. Given that I am on day 8, is it possible she hasn’t laid yet or did something maybe happen?

Anything I should do or know?
