Hive check

With my interruptions to life as usual, this is the first time I've been in the hives in a long time. I've been keeping an eye on them when I lock up the chickens and everything seemed fine. Hive 1 (old hive) four boxes seems to have a full box of honey, I'll save it for processing on the tour de hives. Then a box mostly honey and some empty frames, then 2 boxes mostly brood. They are as usual a little feisty but less then when they were HOT.
Hive 2 is OK, always quite than 1. It has deep with some brood and some empty frames, and a medium with some brood, honey and a bunch of pollen on top.
