If you are new to beekeeping we recommend you start with two or more hives. Two hives allows you to compare how they grow and also allows you to share resources. As an example if you have a weak hive with only a few frames of brood and your other colony is strong with a lot of bees and brood you can give the weak hive a frame of brood from the strong colony. There are other reasons to keep 2 or more, but if you are comfortable starting with one your first year then start with one!
If you have any questions about the nucs feel free to contact us. Beekeeping is a fun and interesting hobby. We wish you the very best of luck in your new adventure!!
