Feel free to check out my blog where I posted all about it http://www.jaredsbees.blogspot.com

They are really quiet today. I guess the trauma of being uprooted and moved in the rain tired them out a bit. I did sneak a look down through the hive top feeder and they have already started building comb over night! They are not touching the sugar water or pollen sub or patty so I guess they are using the frame of honey I put in there with them. There was a lot of chewed cappings on the ground below the hive.

Congrats!

I would have gone with a 1 to 1 ration maybe even a 2 to 1 on the feeder, since they have to draw out some frames tho. I put a 2 to 1 with the swarm I caught last week and they drained it (1 gal) in just over 1 day.
But still Congrats again, now go get your $ back from that tool selling nucs!
