This is my first year and I have two hives. I started at the end of April with two nucs. They both have two deeps with about 60-70 percent drawn out and there seems to be plenty of bees around. It seems that the two fames at either end of the deeps are not touched by the bees. How can I get them to draw these frames? I hope I didnt make a mistake. I know I should have asked someone first. I got a little impatient and moved two of the empty frames to the middle and moved a couple of the filled ones to the end.

That's what I would do, but don't split the brood nest. Also, feeding them will give them more to work with, depending on the nectar flow in your area they may need it.
