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.
