I did an inspection today. One hive seems to be outperforming the other. I have seen the queen in hive one twice. There is capped brood and larvae in both. I can't see eggs without glasses. These hives are 1 month old, started from 3 frame nucs. i got some pics this time, but some aren't that good.

must be something that is confusing what I think I am seeing??? picture #57 and #58 appear like there is no separation between the two combs.

Just exactly what I was going to ask, looks like a shallow or medium frame in a deep box and they built comb on the bottom of the frame. Look at the cell size also, cells above the wood look like worker cells (foundation?) and cells on bottom of wood look like drone cells (wild comb).

You got it G3. Medium frame in deep box. I want to run all mediums but had to get a deep nuc. I'm trying to get comb drawn on some medium frames so i can change to all med next spring. The next box on will be medium size.
