Put them into a nuc, donated some stores, a frame of open and capped brood and an empty drawn frame with a couple naked frames for them. They seem to be content. Feeding them along with the other hives.

    Now to figure out which hive threw them and see what their queen situation is.
    I don't think one of our hives threw them afterall. All queens are accounted for and she doesn't really "look" like she came from here. They are settling in and drawing comb from syrup. We'll see how they do!
