Default Brine shrimp life span and when?

Hey I have axie eggs ready to hatch, they wer layed on the 20th may and growing fast, and could hatch within the next 10 days, I was wondering when should I prepare brine shrimp for them I am not sure of buying it now as I dont want them to die and my axies to starve, so when is the best time to have these prepared and how long will they live for?

I would wait until the first eggs start hatching and then start the hatchery. The brine shrimp usually take 24 hours to hatch and the axie's will be munching on their yolk sac at first. I'm not exactly sure what the lifespan of brine shrimp are, but it's not very long...

The brine shrimp die fast in freshwater , you can keep them alive if you place them in a saltwater tank and feed them, check utube for "growing on brine shrimp", it is where i got the information from.
