>Question: How many smaller, feral hives can you add to a domesticated colony?

That all depends on how strong the hive you are giving the bees to. If you overpopulate them they will swarm and you will have to go out and remove more colonies.

Do the cutouts and see how they produce or just requeen them all. I wouldn't add none of them to my bees unless they were first very well inspected for disease, mites, viruses, etc.
