Good advice Tommy,One thing I would like to add though.When you take the Queen,If you find her on a frame of brood,Leave that frame with the mother hive,That way you know that she has laid in that one,So the eggs will be the right age.Mark,,,,take the queen and 2 brood combs and put them in a nuc. take one frame with pollen and honey....put it in to the nuc. put one empty undrawn frame on one side and one undrawn frame on the other side. close it up. move it about 100 yards or so from the mother hive. feed and walk away. swarm prevention done. as long as there are no swarm cells. check mother hive in 2-3 days for queen cells. if no qc's...take one frame from the nuce or other colony which has eggs and very young brood. put it in mother colony. do this weekly until u have queen cells. let em go and watch for when the flow and when u need to add honey supers because they WILL make tons of it if timed right.
Mine too!!lets all not forget the one very important thing about the glorious nuc. ...or which i like to refer to as a beekeepers best friend and secret weapon : nucs can and should act as a second queen to a colony. one nuc minimum per production hive is my goal this year. its really simple to make a nuc. its even easier to take capped brood from that nuc and add it to the production hive to boost the population during a flow.
this is all my own personal opinion of course.
