I have a hive that is a deep and a shallow, with brood in both. I'd like it to go into winter with two deeps, but I am afraid of splitting up the brood chamber (I mean if I just put the deep on top the first deep, with brood in the shallow above it)
That is a nuc hat is just taking off and I don't want to experiment to drastically - any concerns about just putting the deep in there in the middle?
I'd make sure the queen's in the deep, put the new deep on the bottom, put a queen excluder between the deep where the queen is and the shallow on top. The nurse bees won't leave the brood until they hatch out.
