Have a hive that has 2 deedps and a shallow super. bottom has 7 drawn frames mostly pollen and brood small amounts of honey. Top has 8 almost 9 drawn one is so heavy I thought it was stuck when lifting it out of box full of honey several with mixed honey and brood + pollen. They are just now starting on drawing super. They are building empty queen cells in the top deep but not in the bottom I destroyed all the empty queen cells. The queen looks grat laying happy and strong. I added the super 1 week ago.
I have taken 2 frames of caped brood from this hive in the last 4 weeks to give to a week hive I started from a frame of uncapped eggs and brood and nurse bees. That are doing ok different subject. With no more honey than they have I don't know what I should do next. Please help me. This is my second year started with 2 hives last may from a not so good source lost both hives. Started to give up but ordered 3 packages from Kellly bees this year and what a difference. These girils are unreal compared to last years. Out of the three I killed a queen my like of experience so I split the hive pulled some honey pollen and small amount of brood. Ordered a queen and added to that hive I moved to my house. Let the remaining hive re queen it's self and they took care of business. The other 2 hives have grown to 2 deeps and going. But back to the hive I need help with any advice what do I need to do to help them at this time.
