    Default Nucs 6 days old look normal??

    Hi everyone both these 2 hives are 6 days sense putting nucs in. Today was the first day in about 2-3 days without rain and temps about 65. This is the most activity I've seen sense putting them in.. is the first video just newer bees mapping out the hive area? Or does it seem like an issue?? Sry for the newbie question

    The second video is just cool to me my first time watching the girls bringing pollen in so quickly..

    No, that definitely works and there's nothing wrong with it. That's the way I feed new nucs as well. There is a wood bound queen excluder that looks very similar to an inner cover (when looking from the outside of the hive anyway). I think beefarmer was just curious if had an excluder because you probably wouldn't want one for a very small hive.
