Opened a 5 frame nuc today, right on top of the mountain camp sat a marked Queen and about 10 bees with her, the rest of the hive was dead.The upper two boxes were full of honey. I caged her and made another nuc I took two frames of brood from another nuc put them in the middle and honey on the outside.put the cage in the center and hope it works it is still cold here Pete Bell N3SKI

I think you have a good chance, if you put the clinging nurse bees with the frame! The queen is defiantly a survivor, and you should be in the midst of a build up now, things should get going for that nuc.
