Haven't been able to fish in the past couple of weeks. What are they doing?

Depends on the lake and the fish. I caught 4 crappie at PK earlier this week that were done and my friend caught several full of eggs. The ones I caught were in trees in 10 feet and his were shallow.

They should be just about done if not completely done by now. They should still be pretty shallow as they make their way to their summer spots.

Last batch of fish I filleted were full of eggs, that was last weekend, fish were shallow too. I think it's still happening on the main lake areas, depending on lake of course.

Some of the fish will reabsorb their eggs too. They should be gone in a month or 2.

I caught 14 the other day and a couple had eggs that looked like there weren't no where near close to spawning.

I think when the crappie have a small amount of eggs right now that they have already spawned it seems like I catch em like that every year after the spawn, just my thoughts, no expert here

This is correct. Just because the fish have eggs doesn't mean they are still spawning or are going to spawn. A good amount of fish retain their eggs.

Caught a 10" female this morning in 16 FOW with eggs running out. Several more fish in that same tree.

But as fishin'aholic stated above, not all eggs are deposited and some fish retain eggs. Those eggs are absorbed eventually. In June, look for small dark brownish/orange egg sacks.
