I'm going with all mediums for brood and honey for the first time ever, just wondering how many mediums to install the 3 pound packages into. Also will be using all foundationless frames but will be giving each package one frame with drawn comb with some honey in it. Will one medium be enough space for a 3 pound package followed by a second medium maybe a week later once they get comb building going good in the first one? Thanks, John

I forgot to mention that I planned on shaking the bees in, thanks for the input. John

How about an 8 frame medium? Think that's too cramped to shake a 3#package into a single box? Thanks.
