Re: Filling starter/finishers
Yes the bees can come from as many hives as you like it makes no difference.
You don't even have to use nurse bees in the starter either, even old feild bees can start good cells if you leave them queenless a bit longer before putting the larvae in. The finisher should have a good supply of nurse bees around the cells though.
