Newbee with 3 ten frame hives. 2 from nucs, and one captured swarm.
Hive 1 (nuc) - swarmed a couple weeks ago. Now have no brood, and brood cells are filling with nectar. No swarm cells seen during inspection.
Hive 2 (nuc) - going strong, seem very active.
Hive 3 (swarm - not from hive 1) - doing well, but not as strong as Hive 2.
From what I gather, I can either
1) re-queen hive 1
2) move a frame of brood from another hive. (and weaken the other hive a bit?)
3) combine hive 1 with hive 3 (or 2)
I have bees mostly for pollination - not for honey production.
