Octagon, nice looking hives, very colourful and beautiful, good job.  Have the most wonderful and awesome day, Cindi

I'll get honey from the older hives in the field, these, i may get 30 pounds or so.
 I started one of these hives in May, the other is a hive that I used the newspaper and combined two slow working hives, the new queen must have shookem up because they're going from day light til dark.
