OK, I was given this old bee hive.

Yes I know it's sad now.

My friend Ralph had completely reconditioned my hive to like new!
I'll post pics when I go pick it up.

I bought a bunch of new wood parts at a supply place in Fairburn GA last weekend.
I assembled a bunch of the frames. Ralph had me get the black foundation for the brooder.
He says I can see the eggs better on it.
Although hindered by idjits, we pressed on.

Hi Cockatoo,
Nice hive! Bees like old wood, but they'll luv the newly reconditioned wood as well.  :-D
Yes, the black foundation is much easier to see eggs in, you're gonna like it.
Best of luck, beeking is a great hobby!
