Growing local

Hi All, how long after a hive has been split would it be safe to say that it will survive. I'm looking at buying one that was split 10 weeks ago. How can I tell if it's any good? Thanks

I'd be pretty confident at 10 weeks.  Make sure you are seeing plenty of traffic in and out of the hive.  At 10 weeks a hive with lots of traffic is quite safe. 

Thanks Andy
