New So Calif beekeeper

March 1st I gathered a hive of about 30,000 bees. It seemed huge to be. I've only seen 10,000 twice, therefore my guess at 30.

It's warm here and the flow has just begun. The bees are active and, I think, happy to be here. Life is good at my house. HOWEVER my 3/4 entrance is wide open. About 1 bee in 5 seems to fall out of the frames and land on her back just at or slightly inside the entrance, She wiggles a bit and flips over and then takes off. I don't see that happening at my other two much smaller hives.

Any idea what's happening?
