Hi, I've just started my 1st three hives this year, and they're all started in deep hive bodies. When I was buying equipment this winter, I thought since I was just getting started, I'd go with the "standard" setup. Now, I'm liking the idea of all mediums more and more, and am thinking of switching them over... they'll be lighter, I may try foundationless in the future, and I very much like the idea of moving a frame of honey down from a super to feed. If I decide to do this (and feel free to talk me out of, or into it), how should I go about it? When my bees are ready to expand out of their one deep, should I just start putting mediums on top until there are 3 meds, and then remove the deep? Put a queen excluder above the deep so she doesn't move back in? I would be giving them new frames w/ foundation, so I'm also a little concerned that I'd be asking them to draw a lot of comb this first season. Should I just wait until next season when I have stronger colonies? Maybe I should just plan to start all the new hives I get next year as mediums (which IS inevitable ). Thanks for any advice.
