Earlier I had been on here explaining I inherited a couple of hives. The hives were pretty rotten so instead of trying to move them that way, today I took the guts out of the old ones and put in my new supers. There were several of the frames that were rotten to the point I couldn't remove them intact. Luckily,there was very little activity on the foundation in those frames. As a matter of fact there was not a lot of sign of brood in either hive, but there were lots of bees. This time of year is it normal to not have much brood?? Also, should I go ahead and put new frames and foundation in where the ones were that fell apart ??? thanks

Yes, the brood is just now starting here, some started a couple or three weeks ago here. Yes, replace the bad frames with new frames now, placing the new frames below and to the sides of the bees cluster. Consider feeding if they don't have some honey in stores.
