That's odd, never saw that happen before.

They're pretty much done for. You can try to save them but you'll pretty much need a brine shrimp hatchery with gentle bubbles to keep them oxygenated and circulated.

Good luck.

It happens sometimes. Usually the shrimp will pick up the eggs. The shrmip hatchery idea will work. I had this happen once, and put an air stone into a plastic bottle along with the shrimp eggs. The idea is to keep the eggs and water moving. If you can separate the eggs from the exoskeleton (shell) that would be better.
