I assume you are talking about a 2nd brood chamber--or are you talking about a honey super if a brood chamber as stated 7 - 8 frames and place the new brood chamber on top of the first, I personally would take two frames of sealed or mature brood and place them in the center of the new brood chamber and push the remaining frames of the first brood chamber together and insert the two frames of foundation towards the outside and as stated above place the second brood chamber on top of first I would of course also feed them to encourage the drawing of foundation. I prefer hivetop feeders as it draws the bees up through the upper chamber to feed .
Again just what I would do.
THANK YOU ALL FOR THE INFO. GREAT STUFF. I HAD 5 FRAMES ON BOTTON BROOD BOX. THEN ADDED THE 2ND BOX. THIS IS OUR FIRST YEAR AND LEARNING. THEN WE THOUGHT WE SHOULD HAVE A QUEEN EXCLUDED AND WE ADDED THEM TO THE 11 HIVES. THEN WE JUST TOOK THEM OFF FOR WE THINK WE NEEDED MORE BROOD. TODAY I WENT AND TOOK THE LAST QUEEN EX OFF AND WORE ONLY A HOOD. MISTAKE! GOT BITE 2 TIMES SO WENT BACK TO THE CAR AND GOT MY SUIT AND GLOVES ON. AS I SAID BEFORE WE ARE LEARNING THE HARD WAY. I CAN'T WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR TO DOUBLE OUR HIVES. I SURE LOVE THOSE LITTLE CREATURES. THEY ARE ALOT SMARTER THAN US HUMANS.
I WANTED TO ASK A QUESTION. WE WERE WATCHING OUR BEE'S LAST NIGHT AND A BEE CAME OUT OF THE HIVE AND DROP A LARVA OUT AND IT WAS ALL WHITE AND YOU COULD SEE IT'S LITTLE BLACK SPECK FOR THE EYES. WHY WOULD THEY HAVE DONE THIS?
