This hive overwintered very well. Hopguard was added on Saturday at which it was apparent that thus hive was strong and all three boxes were brood.
Today I did a walk away split. I removed one box that contained eggs, larvae, and sealed brood.
I also added a box that contained several frames of Honey and the rest was drawn. I hope the split will produce a new queen.

New queen spotted. One frame of capped brood. 1/2 frame eggs and leave. Need to reduce down to a 5 frame nuc. Also need to start feeling soon as frames of honey about gone.
