I checked my girls a few days ago and the second medium was almost full of honey, both capped and uncapped. No brood here.
The bottom medium, that had been so full of brood, now had a small amount of capped brood, (I saw one hatching!) and some drone brood around the bottoms of a few frames. All the previously hatched out brood comb was backfilled with nectar, mostly uncapped.
They had built some burr comb between the top mediums frame bottoms and the bottom mediums top frames, which had some larvae in them. I scraped these off, even though I hated the thought of losing the larvae.
I still haven't seen the queen, although I know she was going gangbusters 2 weeks ago.
I added another medium to the top and am hoping they will start building brood comb again.
Now I'm wondering if I should have switched the full medium of nectar/honey with the new medium? (put the new undrawn medium in the middle of the 3)
They should move up, right? Then maybe I should switch out the mediums in some fashion?
Kind of confused here, but want them to be building up brood. I was surprised to see the second super almost full of honey.
No queen cells anywhere. I made sure to look to for any queen cells.
I intend to check them again about Wedensday and see how things look.
