Yes, but if there are bees from the old hive on it when you put it on the new hive it could be like the Sharks and the Jets in a back alley...

For what purpose would you move it? Smiley

well the hive was a deep brood box and a medium super that was the way i wintered it because i ran out of boxes. I wanted it two deep brood boxes so i added a deep with new foundation. not long after I put on the new deep they swarmed. I want them to draw the new deep brood box out and fill it so I moved the super to a stronger hive so they could finish it now because I like the early honey better.
