i am looking for queen rearing equipment, mini nucs that sort of thing can any one help
They can be bought from any local supplier- time to start your Xmas list:)

I have also adapted a brood box to be 2- 5 frame Nucs, ready for next years attempt at queen breeding.

Just a note- in the tiny nucs you need a full mug full of bees, in a 5 frame you need 3 frames bees or they wont get cracking on queen rearing
