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

Default Green eggs

I recently bought some axolotl eggs which seem to be developing normally apart from their green colour. Its my first time raising axolotls from eggs so I'm a bit worried about them. I've attached a photo, could anyone tell me if this is normal or if not, any advice on what to do. Thanks.

Do you have ham to go with the green eggs?! (sorry, couldn't resist)

They are most likely wildtype babies, they can appear greenish, brownish or greyish, striped, spotted or mottled. They look normal to me.

Haha thanks for the quick answer.
They were advertised as leucistic and are very white in the parts that aren't green which is why I was a bit puzzled. I guess we'll see how they develop.
Thanks

You probably should separate the mother and her eggs; axolotls tend to eat their own eggs and even hatched offspring.
