If you ger the right conditions and you have a good population, they might suyrprise you and fill up fast. I got very pleasantly surprised when I found I had not taken enough supers out to give my hives more room! Go Team go!! I am waiting for my first honey crop since 1984. That one was about 38,000 pounds but I don't think we will do that with six five frame nucs that I split up to a dozen colonies.
