I caught a small swarm and a good sized swarm with mated queens. I have a strong new nuc this year. I am more interested in honey production than increasing hives. Is it better to donate a frame of brood from the nuc to one of the swarms or leave all three as they are. For best production this season which swarm would benefit most from a donor frame from the nuc and when to add the frame.

I would combine the two swarms and nix one queen . Dont weaken your nuc. There is a good chance the combined swarm will supercede its queen but that is a plus
