The top-bar hives are really interesting. In both of them, I made 8 bars available and in the first they had 7 with full comb and working on the 8th. In the other,6 of 8 were drawn and lots of brood in both. The comb is just....beautiful!
I made 4 more bars available in each hive. Included are some pictures of working the top-bar hive.
