I now have two queenless hives one is a split from another hive.
I placed a new queen in the split checked after a week she had been released and i removed the cage its now been a month and no sign of the queen also no brood.I do have another hive with brood that i can hopefully get them to start their own queen.The second queenless hive is a double deep should i put the brood in the top or bottom or does it matter?

You have to give them a frame that has eggs that have not hatched into larvae yet. Once they have hatched, it is too late to start the queen making process. I would put it in the bottom box.

Is is possible to buy a couple more queens? Best case it will be 6 or 7 weeks before a queen is made, mated, lays eggs and has offspring adding to your colony's population.
