New to beekeeping, started a hive in northern France together with my parents. This being France, we could only get a nuc on local Dadant frames. We installed the hive exactly three weeks ago, from a 5 frame nuc into a 10 frame Dadant box. The 5 nuc frames were all drawn out, the 5 new frames just had wire in them. No foundation. We fed them once to help them out drawing new comb. Probably 1.5 litres of 1:1 sugar syrup.
We’re going to add a second brood box with Langstroth frames and depending on how fast the girls populate that, also add the Flow frames in a third box on top. Maybe this year, but more probably next year.
My parents did a hive inspection today. One frame still only wire, the rest mostly drawn out and also partially used for honey or brood. I’ve attached the pictures of the frames. Would be great to get some feedback on whether you think all is going well, if we should feed them, and whether we’re ready to add the second brood box already.
