    Default honey super ?

    My 10 frame deep burd box has 2 empty frames on both sides with new foundation. They have honey in 2 frames and brun in the others. Is it too early to put on a med. honey super? Should i wait till they drow cone on the other 4 frames in the brud box?

    Yes, they still have not filled that single brood box.

    You can move two of the undrawn frames into the brood nest to encourage them to draw them out, and when they have, move the other two in and put on your honey super.

    Take a look inside every few days, as when there is a large honey flow in progress they can draw out comb very rapidly.
