Successful split of a first year package

1230 1
Well I hived my first package on April 4 and am completely addicted. I went to my local beekeeper monthly meeting and one of the guys asked me if I was going to split my hive this year. I wasn't aware you could split a first year package. They are doing well, I have added a honey super to the hive which has hatched brood and 8 full frames.

Has anyone had success at splitting? Queens in my area are becoming availible in the next week or two.
