3 egg molts in two weeks

In one tank I've found 3 molts with eggs attached in the past two weeks. The molts only have a few eggs so maybe some stayed on? Is this just young moms or does it point to something off? There have been only two changes: 1. I added a heater and 2. My 7 yr old was in charge of feeding them a few while I was out of town.

I've also seen more seed shrimp than ever (including on those molts)

As a rule that's down to mums not being mature enough. Have you tried tumbling to eggs ,the seed shrimp may be over feeding from the 7year old

No, I'm intimidated to make an egg tumbler but I will try one if my sky blue sheds hers. I wish someone would sell one online. I've seen a nice one on youtube that bounced them just like a shrimp mom but I'm not so handy. I will chalk it up to a trio of young moms then.

I didn't realize this existed! I've been under a rock or something. I'm going to order one now to have for next time.
