Re: need advice on making nucs
Are you wanting to know how to make the nuc boxes or if the two frames of bees/brood will be sufficient for your plans? How many hives are you stealing the frames from (you don't want to over weaken your existing hives)? Where did the queens come from, swarm cells or did you over buy (how fresh are they)? You've got the feed, feed, feed correct.
If you're wanting to know if that set up will work I'd say yes as long as you literally keep them fed until all the frames are drawn and at least the outer ones are full and capped. For those nucs that don't build up (for whatever reason, invariably a runt or two may occur) don't be afraid the pinch the queen and combine with another hive before winter though.
