Well done.
Why do you want to turn them the warm way?
I have never bothered & figure if that was the best way manufacturers would put entrances in the side of nuc boxes not the end.
Definately get some feed in them, not much nectar at the mo till the ivy blossoms especially with the wet weather.

The book that got me through the early stages.

Out of date now (Pre varroa) but still a good reference.
