    Default time to re-orientate hive

    My intentions is to make some Nucs. When splitting a hive I will take the new hives away from my bee yard so the bees establish their new home. How long is it before I can return the nucs back to my bee yard with the bees returning to their original hive.

    Wait until they have a laying queen. Either by raising one or you giving them one. The laying queen makes them a hive. Then you will only have drifting.
