When the eggs are mature the shrimp will deposit them om her swimmerrets after molting and mating. She carries them around for a few weeks and then they hatch.

Yep, what they all said. The yellow you are seeing are the ovaries or "saddles" that are filled with eggs. When the eggs mature a little more, they'll be ejected from the ovaries and she'll attach them to her swimmerettes. My experience with cherries is that it'll be about 3 weeks from the time you notice them on her swimmerettes until they hatch.

Either that or she dropped them. I've had RCS with bright yellow eggs and also i've had some green saddle RCS but haven't seen them berried yet but i'm sure if she has a green saddle then she'll have green eggs in her swimmerettes.

I'd be willing to bet that they are in her swimmeretts! If they aren't I'm not sure maybe she dropped them:icon_sad:
