We are grateful you are here

Adding a new package to an old hive body. When would you add more boxes?

I lost a hive to varroa last year so I replaced them with a new package. I've added that package to brood box with fully drawn out frames plus a frame of capped honey.

I'm thinking I'll wait 3 weeks or so after the queen is released to add another brood box unless they manage to fill those frames sooner with brood and pollen. But I'm curious, what would you all do?
