When you cut comb with eggs in it and attach to tbh frame. What direction should the eggs face ? Like they are when drawn out or turned so eggs face down? Thank you for the help. Trying to raise my own queens.

Don't bees draw queen cells down anyway? Why are you cuting comb and attaching to a frame? Like are you cutting swarm cells and attaching these to a top bar for queen rearing?

Ahh yes, well if you look closely at the comb it will have a slight slant upwards so it does matter what direction to install it, it should be installed with the same "up" orientation as it was drawn.
