Long story short, I have two queens that I don't have immediate location for.  My thoughts, were to put them in nucs,... But I'm low on brood.  Can I Nuc them with two frames,.. One with larva & bees the second empty, them feed?
thanks.

Additional question, when I do put the Queens in the Nucs, should I Make up the Nucs , them go overnight queenless then add the queen directly or put the queen immediately in the cage upon making up the Nuc?

I would give them at least a few hours before introducing the cage, but the next day is fine, too.

Thanks, I'll set up the holding Nucs this morning, give them about 4 - 6 hours and put the cages in.  I appreciate your prompt help as I was in a bind!
