My best (gentlest and most productive) colony made swarm preps and I nuc’d the queen on 1st May.

I have a very slow to build up hive with some chalk brood (still only on 6 frames of brood, a couple of pollen/stores frames and a couple of unused frames).

Can I unite the nuc to this hive? Just squash the queen and then newspaper unite? This is my best queen so don’t want to mess it up.

Wondering if it’s ok to unite so soon after nucing her…
