Full Broodnest

753 2
I have 2 hives that are pretty full. They have 10 deep frames full of brood they are starting to back fill. There's 10 more getting filled with honey.

I was going to take 2 brood frames from each hive to give the queen space for eggs. If I take 2 honey frames that are not all the way full will they be OK to use? I don't have drawn comb to use.

There's a couple of frames that will soon have all the brood hatched out. Will all of that space get filled with honey? I'm adding supers the day after tomorrow. It looks like the flow is on here.

I guess I'll have to go back weekly to keep checking on the brood space.

I want these hives for honey production.
