Default When are cherry shrimp most likely to drop their eggs?

Sooner or later into their 'pregnancy'?

I ask because my boyfriend and I are considering a growth charting experiment wherein we remove one berried female from our main shrimp tank and separate her off into a (fully cycled) tank devoid of other shrimp. We want to have a control sample of baby shrimps we can monitor for developmental progress.

So would it be best to select a female with smaller berries? or one bursting with nearly ready eggs?
