That one Herald looks really light and lacking the spots compared to the other?

I know I am going to cause a stir here, but releasing them is not a good idea. They could carry diseases that could harm the wild population in your area. Thats the only negative thing I have to say, otherwise congratulations on the new born heralds.

If these snakes have not been in direct contact with other snakes or their cages, then releasing them will not really pose a threat to the natural population. I would not even wait for the next shedding. Release them now and let them fend for themselves.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
