Hello Everyone just to let you know i think my ob hive has made it through its first winter. They have been bringing in pollen for two weeks and more cells are being capped as more eggs are being laid. I'm not sure if this is my queens second or first year as she was added in august 2009 as they failed there supersede attempt. 

Wot would you say , does this class as my queens first year ?

I have one drone as well , i began to worry she was gonna start being a drone layer as some of the cells looked quite domed but workers have emerged from the cells.

Our winters where I am are a little warmer than the UK (not a whole lot),  but it's good to hear all the beekeepers in colder places having success.
I'd love to see pics of the OB hive if you have them (OB hive is something I'd like to do but haven't gotten around to.

Congratulations. Your hive looks robust. Mine has wintered over but almost starved once and has lost much of it's population. I think it will make it and remember how fast it can build up when it gets going.

Adam James, I am unsure if you have formally been welcomed to our forum.  Perhaps, but if not, welcome, so great you found us.  AND..better yet, you have had success with your observation hive, wonderful!!!  Stick around, we love new members, do have that most awesomely great and most beautiful day, and health.

Is that a super on top of your OH? Mind explaining how that works?

Wow!  They have a lot of bees left too!

Mine is down to half a deep frame of bees and a little honey, pretty normal, but with capped brood, yippee!  As long as no SHB(haven't seen any this winter) show up they'll be golden!
