Are you saying "mini nucs" meaning the frames are something other than standard size, or what? Your question has been opened and read by a lot of people and nobody has answered because maybe nobody understands what you are asking.
Usually a nuc is just a box with fewer frames -- 2, 4, 5 or something -- instead of 8 or 10 frames. You'd normally use the size frame compatible with the size hive you'll eventually move the bees into. At least, that's my understanding. You could use frames that belong in a deep box, for example.
Clarify your question and you'll be more likely to get a bunch of answers. Some might even agree with the others
Yes he is talking a mini-nuc with mini nuc size frames. I don't know the dimension but they are very small frames about half the size or smaller than a medium. And I have no idea about transfer and I think most folks that sideline use standard equipment. And the nucs are usually to breed the queen remove her, cage her, sale her, or place her. Not to make a transition to other size equipment.
