Can I add second brood box in the summer?

We are grateful you are here

Can I add second brood box in the summer?

Or, should I wait for another part of the year? I'm in South Florida and new to beekeeping.

I recently went from 5 frames to 10. The bees seem happy. They didn't swarm and I thankfully avoided needing to do a split. (I was nervous about that) Anyway, I did an inspection today and all looked well lots of eggs and varying stages of brood development. I also saw lots of honey. It feels like the queen may run out of places to lay eggs because of the amount of honey and unfinished comb on outer frames.

Should I give them even more space by adding another deep and put a feeder up top or will they be ok?

Thanks!!!!
