    Default Is my hive making comb correctly?

    Hi there,

    Would you mind taking a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdIeGZRZrv0 and letting me know if this month old top bar colony is making comb correctly. It's not filling out the entire length of the bar built to Phil Chadler's specs which is 17 inches. Will they get bigger over time? Everything is very level. Thanks for any advice.

    They look fine. They'll get bigger over time.

    Looks fine but you won't get away with cocking it sideways when they are full size and full of brood and stores
