Many... as in lots.  :wink:

Pretty much as long as it has removable (replaceable) combs, hanging from bars or in frames, then any old cavity will do!

What Maggiesdad said. If you have multiple hives (I recommend multiple hives) I recommend them being the same. Then you can easily share resources if needed. For example if a hive is queenless you can easily add a frame of open brood and eggs so they can make a new Queen.
