Second year here, I got into the bottom box for the fist time today, when I pulled them apart I split up some drone comb between the two boxes and as I pulled out frames there were drone cells around the top of the brood in about 4 or 5 frames in the middle of the box they were in an arch like how the pollen usually is, Is this normal? I never had this last season.Thanks Rhonda

Normal hives make lots of drones in early spring because it's swarm time and the drones are needed for mating new queens. Nothing to be concerned about; just watch for swarm signs and take appropriate measures.
