Re: Drone comb management
From what I've read, you take the frame of capped drone brood, freeze it over night, scratch the cappings the next day and return it back to the hive for the workers to clean out and let the queen lay in the drone comb again. I have never done it so I can't say this from an experienced point of view.
I noticed in my hives that the drone comb was filled with stores for winter, so I imagine you could use it in the honey supers.
As far as putting it in a nuc, I probably wouldn't because you don't want an abundance of drones in a small colony like a nuc, then again I've never put a frame of drone comb in a nuc before either.
