Nucleus hives  (NUCS) are an excellent way to get started in beekeeping,  essentially a small established hive.  Our NUCS are 4 frames.  Each will contain a laying queen, 1 frame of food, and 1 drawn frame of comb.  The 4 frames NUC will have 2 frames of brood. Each full frame of brood consists of approximately 7,000 babies to hatch.  In addition, to the brood frames, each Nuc will have about 10,000 bees.
