I have a package arriving this week for a new TBH. I also have a shook swarm that I will be getting for a second TBH in about a month. I have three pieces of comb from another local beekeeper. One is a full size comb and empty, another is about 4" x 4" and empty, and another is almost a full size comb that is filled with honey. I'm wondering if I should hang all three pieces in my first hive and then remove one or two in about a month when I get the shook swarm? Otherwise, should I save one of the larger two combs for the second hive? Thanks.

If they are mated queens it might be nice for them to have some comb to lay eggs in straight away so they don't have to wait.
The honey may be worth holding on to to see which one needs it. Both will need feeding to start with anyway and there should be some sort of nectar flow for them to jump on when they're ready.
