Default Perennial bunching onions

This is first time I am growing perennial bunching onions and now I wonder if this is normal for them to start dividing during first year. I started the seeds in the greenhouse this spring and transplanted to large container outdoors later. Since I expected them to grow one single onion during first year we did not harvest any as scallions. Those have kept growing whole summer and are still going strong. Now I noticed that the single plants have already divided. Is this normal for them? I was planning to plant all of them to a raised bed this fall, but maybe we will harvest some of them already before first frost comes.

I am very grateful to bower for the seeds!
