So I have ordered some packages to replace my dead outs from winter. The dead out hives are fully drawn multi deeps. My question is this should I only use one deep per packages or should I put two deeps on to start? Also I have a lot of capped honey from these dead outs, how many frames of honey should I put per box? And if two deeps are recommended to start packages should the capped honey be put into the bottom box, top box or dispersed between the two? Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

I would let them fill one box at a time with empty comb in the middle and honey to the outside. Once they have filled 80 percent or so throw the other deep on.
