Brine Shrimp eggs

I have purchased a think of brine shrimp eggs and planned to use the newly hatched brine shrimp to feed some guppy fry. many eggs hatched and whatever but at the bottom theres a bunch of eggs havent hatched... I noticed the fry are very happy eating the unhatched eggs...

will the fry get the same health benefits from the unhatched eggs as if they were hatched?

Underh20 has the answer.
decapsulated brineshrimp eggs are the best.
I have over 70 aquariums an breed many species of fish for wholesale and fish shops.
Cichlids need live shrimp for the first few weeks because they are predatory.
Unhatched shrimp eggs cannot be digested properly and can cause intestinal blockages in all fish.
Decap shrimp are cheap and100% usable plus they have better food value.
