    I noticed my pregnant female guppy was getting close to giving birth last night, so i put her in the nursery tank to have her fry. This morning, i woke up to alot of babies, but also 10 or so eggs. Why didnt she hold the eggs until they were developed, and then have them? Ive never seen this before. I have heard of a female giving birth for 2 or more days. Im wondering why she delivered the eggs...

    She delivered eggs that simply didn't hatch inside of her... it isn't a problem, but the eggs won't hatch.

    Eggs may have never been fertilized, so she expelled them.
