I start every summer about 20  three frame mating nucs.
When a queen emerges, I give one frame of bees with queen and I move nuc to another yard.
It takes 10 days that queen starts to lay. Then I give a frame of emerging bees.
Those bees will not fight with queen. Then 4 weeks later the nuc is full of bees and brood and it is time to give more space.

If nuc has too much forager bees, they fill combs with honey.


How to make a wintering hive from nuc is a different story.
For example if I join brood frames of 3 nucs, then I get a minimum hive.
