    :grin: Got my 2nd nuc today which will be moved to the hive tomorrow, 1st colony doing well, drawing comb with capped brood and honey + pollen on the new frames. Now I have moved some undrawn comb between the drawn ones as someone suggested on here. Will give them a check within 10days.:thumbsup:

    Two wise moves. I always feel uncomfortable reading reports of beeks keeping families intended to grow and produce within the confines of a nuc more than a minimum amount of time.
    Where you place the frames with foundation has a lot to do with how fast they'll be built.
    Best of success to you. :grin:
