Pregnant Red Cherry Shrimp

Hey,
So this is my story.....I was tearing down my Shrimp tank for a gold fish and i noticed i still had living shrimp. So i was netting them and putting them into my big tank and realised that not one but 2 of them have eggs under their tails. So i went next door and borrowed one of their plastic fish tank put some water in there from the established tank and plonked the RCS in there. I also put some java moss, Hair grass and anubius (plants i dont want) in there just for the shrimp to hang on to.
Now i was wondering if there is anyway to determine how long the eggs have been in the flaps of the tail? If so please tell me and do the babies need any special needs? Aka food or anything like that.
Thanks guys!

Not sure how you can tell how long they have been there. As far as special needs... lots of cover, which it sounds like you have taken care of, and also be careful if you have a filter on the tank. The babies will tend to get stuck/get sucked into the filter intake if it isn't covered with some foam or a prefilter of sorts.

They usually turn greenish about a day before they hatch. No special care, what keeps the adults happy keeps the babies growing.
