    Here are the traits you're dealing with:

    Mack snow raptor: Tremper albino, Mack snow, eclipse, stripe
    Dreamsicle: Tremper albino, Mack snow, eclipse, enigma

    The offspring will all be Tremper albinos and eclipse. Some will be enigma, some Mack snow, some supersnow and some non-snow.

    I really can't tell anything from looking at those pictures. The ones that were white as opposed to yellow on hatching are Mack snows.It may be hard to tell the difference between patternless stripe and super snow. Some albino super snows eventually develop beige vertical striping, though I hatched 4 last season that stayed completely white. So, to summarize, you're going to have to look at each one and decide whether or not it is an enigma, snow or supersnow. There's no way I can tell from the pictures (though if you see faint patterns, it's not a super snow)

    In the first one you can definitely see a fading partial reverse stripe on the back, so it's not a super snow (I don't even know if it's a snow at all). The second one may have a bit of fading stripe around the base of the tail. It's hard to tell. If you do see hints of fading stripe, they are not supers. Super snows hatch with absolutely no pattern anywhere. I'd say the second one has a better chance of being a snow than the first, based on what I can see of the color. It can be hard to tell.
