When splitting strong hives into splits with mated laying queens, what is the recommended # of brood frames I need to take. I am splitting from 10 frame deep brood boxes so should I split half/half or can I get away with 2 frames of brood and fill the remainder of the nuc with a pollen and honey frame with 1 wax foundation. I plan to feed as much and heavily as I need to build up and hopefully goldenrod will kick in. If it helps I am in West Central AL.
