sunday afternoon: present from James: wooden Nuc box

This afternoon James from the backward beekeepers came to my house to drop of some stuff and he gave me a very nice and practical gift.
He had built a wooden Nuc bee box, that holds 5 frames.
Painted and detailed till perfection including enough ventilation for southern california weather:
The chickens came to check it out, it looks that good ! ;-)

I helped James to catch a swarm to put in his Top Bar Hive.

The girls are going crazy in his backyard:

He also made a nice time lapse video of the bees going in and out the hive over a day:

Thanks James!!
