I started with 2 packages in April with 2 deep boxes fully drawn with comb and stores from last years colony that died. I added a second deep to one of my hives as it was jam-packed with brood and stores but my other hive is a bit behind and I was wondering if I should have went ahead and added the second deep on the weaker hive. The weaker hive looks good but the queen is laying in a willy-nilly pattern all over the place. I found a queen cell in the weak hive that was opened at the bottom so the girls may have already replaced the old queen. I didn't see the queen when I inspected but I saw uncapped brood and eggs and the bees were exceptionally gentle so I suspect all is well. Should I give the weaker hive a week or two and then take a peek and see about the second deep then?
