Re: What To Do With a Frame of Brood From "Opening Up the Brood Box"
Assuming you are replacing the frame of brood with foundation or another drawn comb. Right? Of course you don't just go from say 10 frames to 9 in a brood box.
Harvest honey out of the deep from a frame and put foundation back in to open up an extra space for a frame in the brood area.
If your question has to do with rotating frames to open up the brood area this is another thread. http://www.beesource.com/forums/showthread.php?251825-Questions-for-Those-That-Don-t-Rotate-Brood-Boxes&highlight=don%27t+rotate
Also you can start a nuc with one frame of brood (mixed eggs, larva, capped), a frame of honey and pollen and shake some nurse bees in it. The other three can be foundation or whatever. Feed the nuc if needed and you are off to a new hive.

Try living life with the attitude it's not about what you want to do but what you should do!
