This is local, Massachusetts supplier. I brought him my hives, one deep with six frames of foundation each. He installed bees in them and called when they were ready to pick up. I brought them home, didn't disturb for two weaks, just fed them sugar. Should be four frames of brood and about 2-3 # of bees, and queens. What I found two weeks later I wrote. If it was four frames of brood, after emerging there should be deep full of bees. They were covering just six frames.
