I ordered a Warre hive..What is the best way to come up to speed on getting started: introducing the bees, feeding, etc?
I am in much the same situation as you. Except I am in the process of building my warre hive.
First thing I did to start was to download the warre book. Well, its actually the English translation, but I don’t speak French.

this site is pretty good and http://warre.biobees.com also has a lot of info.
I would recommend buying the ultimate top bar hive tool from beethinking. From my what I’m reading its very helpful when working a warre.
Third thing is to watch some youtube vids on warre hives. There are some really good ones showing how to install your bees.
Good luck !
