Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding Eggs everywhere, how did that happen? Will it be albino or wildtype?

Default Hatchlings with transparent eyes?

Hello,
The eggs from my leucistic (female) and golden albino (male) recently hatched and I appear to be getting two different morphs. Half appear to be wild type, but the other half are light grey with transparent or possibly no eyes. I was wondering if anyone could give me a hint as to what morph the second half is? All of the eggs were brown/black so I was not expecting any hatchlings to be albino, could they be leucistic? The eyes are just really throwing me off...

Thank you!

Super cool photos!
It might be that they were born eyeless, but you have quite a few without the appearance of eyes. I have a melanistic (I think) axolotl who, when I got him, had no eyes. He then developed them over time, so that may also be the case.
Good luck figuring this out!

It’s probably albinos since they’re too small at this stage to see their eyes. Mine did the same thing.
