Baby Crayfish Disappeared

So recently I bred my 4 female P. alleni. They developed eggs, but then the eggs disappeared and I don't see any babies. Is it possible that the adults ate the eggs/babies? I've bred these before, and I remember it being pretty straightforward...

Or is it possible for them to have unfertilized eggs?

I know with my CPOs any unfertilized eggs were bright orange (fertilized were dark green). But AFAIK adults will eat them and the babies will also kill each other. Unless there is a peaceful, non baby eating cray out there I'm not aware of (which could be the case!). Got to have tons of plants and hiding places.
