Thank you Boston Bees for your correct interpretation of my actions, sometimes this forum makes one feel alone rather than part of a community.If there was nothing in those combs, and they were black and manky, of course you have done the right thing taking them out and replacing them. If what you had available was foundation then you have also done the right thing in feeding to help them draw it out, given how weak they are.
I think most of the complaints have been due to a misunderstanding about what you meant by a Bailey Change, and also because you mentioned "shook swarm" without an appropriate trigger warning (For the record I don't do shook swarms either!)
There may have been (or still be) a health issue with the hive, given the size of them, but that's another question.
I expect this will be my last post as I have had the temerity to question a moderators opinions and a ban is probably coming imminently, c'est la vie. Thank you again for your support.
