I'm a one year hobbyist beekeeper in the Eastern Missouri Ozarks. My hobbies include hunting, fishing, muzzleloaders, and bees. I've been having a problem with one hive not growing very well and have been pulling resources from another 2 hives here.
Welcome! Kind of late to do it but maybe you should consider (post in 101 so someone down there can give you advice) ending the weaker hive’s linage and combining the resources back to the other two for the winter, then split in the spring to get your numbers back up.
