    Now...a good queen in a health hive will start a small patch in Jan round here and your zone should be the same.

    northeast okla: 1 or 2 frames with a patch of brood in all 8 hives, Feb 19.

    Another local beekeeper same on Feb 20. His hives had bigger patches of brood than mine, but he feeds more.

    If the beginning of spring laying is a reaction to increasing daylight, then shouldn't everyone in the Northern hemisphere be seeing brood at this point?
