Re-queening?

1123 2
Newbeek decided to dive head first in beekeeping with 4 new hives. 2 of the 4 are doing outstanding and the other 2 had to be requeened. Even though the queen were m.i.a the bees filled the broad box with mostly honey and pollen. I requeened and just had the inclination that I should have added a new broad box to the bottom to give the new queen more room to work. Any thoughts?
