Ghost Shrimp eggs turning white-clear?

One of my ghost shrimp that I got was berried, and also had a horsehair worm in her (thanks, PetSmart). I separated her and as you could probably expect she passed away. I felt bad, because even in her last breaths, she was trying to give oxygen to her little babies. Or something, maybe she was just trying to move. Either way, I tried saving her eggs. I noticed that they have moved on from their green coloring to either a white or clear color. Do you think they're a lost cause? I wouldn't be surprised if that worm messed things up for the eggs.

I removed them from the shrimp an put them in a small cup (my quarantine mini tank cracked;. I put some algae water and decaying leaves in there, and every once in a while I use a pipet to give them some air.

I doubt they'll survive they need to be in a tumbler to keep them moving and also separated, look up how to tumble shrimp eggs on YouTube,

Doesn't look like I'll be able to get one by then. Thanks for your help either way.

If it is transparent clear with a black dot, it is alive and near hatching. If it is opaque white, it is dead inside.
