You might consider doing this...
In hive #2, remove 1/2 the frames of honey and replace with frames of foundatio.
The frames of honey you removed, put in a new box, adding frames of foundation to fill the box. Put this box on top of hive #1.
This will give room above on hive #2 to reduce swarming tendencies while still leaving pleanty of stores for spring brood rearing.
This will also give more stores to hive #1 for spring rearing.
This will give both hives room to expand upwards.
Best of luck to you
