Queen Makes An Alate As Nanatic!!

I have a Camponotus Pennsylvanicus who made the weirdest and largest egg I've seen from any queen. At first I thought it was diseased, but it recently hatched and had a queen inside. THis queen doesn't evben have any workers, and yet she already has an alate. Has anyone ever heard of this?
