Hi All,

I am going to be picking up a couple of packages in two days and might have the opportunity to get a nuc at the same time.  I am pretty sure that the nuc will be in deeps and I am staying with all Mediums if I can.  Is there any easy way to get the Nuc transferred to the Medium boxes or should I just save my money and stick with the two hive startup that I had originally planned? Undecided

Get three packages, leave the NUC.

 Use the search box. Deeps to mediums. You will get more than you will want to read on doing it.

Put a nuc in a ten frame hive when it grows up.
Put your medium box on and when the queen moves up put another or 2 medium's on. take the deep and put it on top with a queen x-cluder under.when the brood hatches they will fill with honey.
A lot of work for nothing except more hard work.
If you are going medium all the way, stick with mediums. :)doak
