Unfortunately, I think it's more complicated than that. Check out this link and see if you can learn anything from it:

How to Breed Freshwater Ghost Shrimp | eHow.com

Her eggs may not even be fertilized. Do you have a male that has fertilized them? What color are they?

If you do get it to work, though, then awesome!

Unfortunately successfully raising newly hatched Ghost shrimp to their final shrimplet stage can be quite tricky you should have some java moss in there to give the larva some cover until you can remove the adult, then feeding them green water and hope they grow. You would probably be more successful if you raised them in a small pond where they would have all the cover and food they would need. If it's just shrimp in themselves you would like to breed Cherry shrimp are a much better option.

The females will get a greenish patch called a saddle, which is actually eggs in the ovaries right behind their heads, no salt is needed most Ghost shrimp are shipped in wild caught from Florida and they are a freshwater species and she will not die after the eggs hatch.

Salt is not needed, I'm not sure what it may or may not do, but if she is already berried then there won't be a saddle.

I'm not exactly sure, I would say she will carry them for a few weeks before they hatch.
