So my two 3# packages were Hived on April 7Th. I have fed them 1:1 sugar syrup from day one. As of today, twenty seven since that day (23 have been rainy), they both already have 7 frames drawn out. Five of those are drawn completely. I decided to place my second brood boxes on today, we have (fingers crossed) good weather for a while here so I didn't want to leave them without more space to expand. Almost 2 full frames were brood that have already hatched and the queen has laid again in those cells already. I am just blown away that they have been so productive. Every cell has been occupied by something. It is just amazing. :shock:
P.S. Both hives are almost Identical so far in build-up.
