3-Way Split Today

While at the farm today I decided to split the East Hive.  It has been doing well and is a lot stronger than the West Hive.  As I dug into the hive I found lots of bees and lots of brood.  I found three frames with 1-day old larva and decided to try for a 3-way split.  I never found the queen among all the bees, so I made sure each hive had a frame with 1-day old larva for raising queens as needed.
