    I just split off 4 Nuc's and will install queen cages tomorrow.

    There is a very strong flow of Canola. Should I feed the new Nuc's as there are few workers?? Or let them fend for themselves.

    If you put in a good frame of honey, you should be all set, if not, feed, feed, feed.

    I'd just make sure they have honey when I make the split and make sure there is a flow. If not, then feed them all they will take.
