I have one colony that I started in a deep because the nuc I got was in deep frames. I want to try to get this colony into mediums. so I put a medium over the deep and fed (started a little late this year in this group) and they have built out comb on foundation and filled the medium with sugar water. the deep is the brood box and they doing fine there. question is, if I move the sugar-water filled medium under the deep, will they move the sugar water-honey up and start using the medium ( now on the bottom) as part of the brood area? or will I just mess them up? I want to eventually get to all mediums with this hive.
I know many prefer to have everything the same size for interchangeability, and I get that, but I'm an experimenter and I want to try mediums and don't care if I have to have multiple sizes and configs. im a hobbyist in it for the fascination.
