Batch file copying

I have 35000 folders on a Windows machine (we also have Macs if that would provide a better solution) with anywhere from 5 to 50 jpgs in each folder.  I need to "split" the collection, moving about one-third to another destination.  What I would like is to find a tool or script that can create the folder in the destination and move the first 2 files from every folder.  We've looked at a couple of gui automators, file mgmt programs (of which some are excellent like Fileboss), xxcopy, etc. and I just can't quite crack the code.
