Can I move frames from my strong hive into my weak one?
1 year ago
Yes, of course you can. I would ask...How weak is the small hive? Will adding frames of brood resuscitate the weak colony? Is it worth weakening the strong colony in late September?
12 months ago
Yes you can. I moved some of my extra frames (deeps with honey in them) from a colony merge I did because they the colony was just way too large for the bees to cover during the winter. I have also moved brood frames earlier in the summer and they where accepted by the same colony.

Note I am a newbie myself so I'd defer to Mike Palmer first. ~Daniel
