I am new beekeeper and picked up a 5 frame deep NUC on 5-10 and placed in my back yard that night. I placed another 5 frame box on top with top feeder on top.
The girls have had over a quart of 1:1 water with HBH. I have seen plenty of polen coming in and everything seems stable. I do have 10 frame brood boxes waiting to go.
It has been raining off and on all weekend, I hope to get hives tomorrow 5-21 or 5-22, depending on weather....
What should I look for and when would you all recommend I move them into 10 frame boxes?
Would you all switch bottom to top frame locations or leave alone and just add the outer frames?
