Comb gets dark where the bees have raised brood in the past.  I'm going to guess they might have raised brood in those bottom combs at some point.

most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.
