Consolidating honey?

We are grateful you are here

Consolidating honey?

Beginning winter prep and have some questions.

Hive status: as of last check, 2 deeps, both containing brood and some honey on the outer frames, 3 medium supers. 1 filled with honey, the other 2 are half filled.

Will the bees consolidate the honey into the second deep on their own? Or do I need to wait until it's cleared of brood, remove the deep, and load all honey into 2 supers so my final setup is 1 deep, 2 medium supers, hot box?

Essentially, the hive has too many boxes currently, how do I consolidate the resources into less space?

(for climate context, I am in Cleveland, Ohio)
