I got a nuc of bees(four frames) on Monday 23rd. I seen lots of activity and bees foraging they were bringing back bright orange pollen on Tuesday  now Wed and today(Thurs) no bees are leaving the hive. Is this normal? They are in a 10 frame deep with top entrance. They also have a baggie feeder with 1:1 syrup.

I bet the nuc is full of nurse bees and you are feeding them so all they need is a little pollen.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

It is probably a little bit of weather, lower temps plus small # of bees that just got dumped into a larger space to take care of plus a low amount of forage bees.

my thoughts axactly. the nuc I hived did the same thing when the temp dropped 20 degrees three days after I hived them. I went by to check on them and nothing was moving. I got real worried, two days later temp came up and girls were doing great.
