Thanks for the thoughts,.. I should have clarified, I have moved a 4 frame Nuc into a 10 frame box that I use 9 frames in. So in summary , 4 frames moved into 9 frame box. I had originally placed the honey frame adjacent to the brood but the queen didn't seem to be crossing it to lay in the 4 frames on the opposite side( I waited about 7 days). I moved the honey super to a location one off from the box wall opposite the brood, the #9 position, or if you will for a 9 frame box, the #8 position.
Hope this makes more sense.
