Both hives have settled down nicely. Today we went and had a quick peek and here is what we found:
Hive #1 has started building out four of the new empty frames in the hive. Three of them are more than half full of new comb already and these bees have taken all of the syrup we added a week ago.
Hive #2 is not taking the sugar syrup so we poured it into the feeder on hive #1. They look like they are doing well but have not started to build out the new frames in the upper deep box at all.
