Started feeding

I began a 2:1 sugar water feeding today with hive #2.  I planned to replace empty, undrawn frames with frames from the extraction, which have fully drawn comb, but in only a few days they have begun to draw out comb on most frames in the top hive body and have filled some with honey, so I ended up only replacing two frames.  They've been busy!  I think the supplemental feed will help, though.  I have no concerns about hive #1, which has great winter stores in place.
We plan to go to the East Central Beekeeper Association meeting tomorrow night.  Should be interesting.
