I did 2 splits 7 days ago.Took 3 frams of brood and one frame of honey and pollen from 2 different hives for both.I used boughten queens and both are out of the cages. I have seen no flying from these splits, it is in the 60s today and still no flying.Is it normal for splits not to be out flying for a week or so? The parent hives are out and about in a big way.I have feeder jars on the top and they have some brown feces on the jars and on the top cover.the only thing that is comon between the 2 is i used some come from a winer killed hive to fill the rest of the deep i have them in.
they are not taking the sugar syrup only an inch or 2 out of a gallon jar.There are no eggs yet.
