Just started 2 colonies 10 days ago. One is foundationless, the other wax foundation. The foundationless seems to be building comb a little slower. Its been around 60 here most of the days with a few cold days. How long should it take to build out my first 10 frame deep? Also I have the hives out in the open, should I build a wind break for them?

Welcome to another Michigander. This weather just wont make up its mind for us, I sure wish it would stay warm and sunny.

Welcome, I have had my bees since April 19th, with 1:1 syrup the whole time. I would say that of the 10 frames, I have 50% fully drawn out at this point.
