I have a hive with a newer queen (actually it's the sister queen to Medics) that has filled 2 eight frame deeps with brood. They even have brood on the inside portion of frames 1 & 8 in each box. A drawn honey super went on last week and I'm experimenting with 7 frames in an eight frame medium. Another experiment I did was to move this hive to my friends red/white clover hay fields which have been cut once to date. I put an excluder under the honey super. Should I add a 3rd deep? I suppose I could transfer them to 10 frame equipment which would give them an extra 4 frames to work. I wasn't expecting much from this hive as it has been my experimental trial and error hive all season but now I have aspirations of a honey crop!
