Re: Walk away split help.
Lot of opinions on this subject but I leave the split in the same yard most times. The only thing I might change is add a shake or two of nurse bees to the hive not staying in the original location, they'll need a few to promote to foragers. You referenced not having an in hive feeder which seemed to imply you had a entrance/Boardman type feeder, add an empty box and place the entrance feeder inside the box. You can also look up feeding option threads, feeding can be as simple as a jar inverted on a couple of sticks with small holes in the lid.
