I am guessing that your 'feeder shrimp' are Ghost Shrimp (glass, grass, ...). These shrimp are commonly sold as feeder shrimp for about 10 for $1 and are transparent, correct? If that is the case, if the eggs hatch, little shrimp larvae will be all over your tank and will be either sucked up by your filter, or be eaten by your fish :)

To ensure the survival of these eggs you will have to setup a seperate small tank called a "grow-out tank" which is used to keep the larvae in until they reach the shrimp stage i.e little versions of the adults. I believe this transformation takes about 3 days. Good luck.

P.S. If you are planning to hatch these eggs in order to have more feeders, I would suggest you just buy more it is a lot cheaper ;)
