I did an inspection yesterday in my swarm hive.  I found a couple of  frames that was totally full of eggs, both sides, with no pollen or nectar being stored.  I have not run across this before.  It is like the queen is going crazy laying eggs.  Not giving the workers a chance to fill up with pollen/nectar

I am wondering if this is going to take up storage spaces for the pollen/nectar?

Are the workers taking in sugar water from your feeders? Have you seen any bees bring pollen into the hive? You can always add more brood boxes and frames to prevent crowding. I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing. A strong/speed spring build up is usually wanted.

As long as they have pollen elsewhere, looks ok to me.doak

Once they filled out the bottom deep, I quit feeding them syrup.  I added on a medium for another brood box, and since the flow is happening now I didn't think that I needed to feed the any more.

They went like gang-busters and drew out the bottom deep in about 10 days.  I see them bringing in lots of pollen.
