Hi we are new to bee keeping. Our hives are 4 weeks old and they have fill out 8 or so frames in the first deep. So we have been reading and some say to put the second deep under the first and some say to put it on top. So we were just wondering what everyone thought?

Take the frames that have not been filled out yet and break up the brood nest with them by placing them between already drawn frames. Then as guner62 states, add the next brood box full of frames on top of this one. They will start to work into them as they finish up in the bottom.

Thanks drlonzo and gunter 62. We were not sure because others told us we should put the new box on the bottom. But then we had read that bees like to work up (like Gunter 62 said). So as soon as it stops raining we will put the second deep on top. Thanks again.
