I have three TB Hives. One is doing great. Lots of honey stores, about 7 - 8 bars full of honey, about 8-9 full of brood and a bit-o-honey.
The other two maybe have one bar full of honey each, and 9-11 bars of brood a a bit-o-honey.
I was planning on leaving the honey for the bees over winter, and not feed them. But, looks like I might have to feed.
But..., can I take 4 bars from the first hive, and put 2 bars in each of the other?
Would that be enough for the winter? Hive dimensions are 14" across top, 8" across bottom, 1.5" wide bar.
