Checking Sugar Syrup

Nuc #3 taking sugar syrup.

Nuc #1 - not taking much but a little. 
Not sure about this hive.

Swarm Hive - they've taken the most.

I marked the jars with a Sharpie pen so I could tell if they had taken any sugar syrup since I put the jars on Tuesday evening.  I checked them late this afternoon - Nuc #1 is my only concern - not much but they've taken a little.  The weather is supposed to be extra warm tomorrow but with a chance of rain - who knows!
