Unfortunately, there's no real way to tell what kind of lizard it may be until they hatch... unless you happen to find someone with a lot of experience of the lizards in your area. My guess is that if you've ever see any little common lizards in your back yard, thats what it would be.
Another problem is, most reptile eggs cannot be turned from their initial position after a few hours to a day of being laid (unlike bird eggs). The way the embryo sticks itself to the "top" side of the egg, often means that if the egg gets turned over, it can be drown in the yolk. So after being severely disturbed, they may not hatch at all.
If they do hatch, they should be able to care for themselves immediately. There is no paternal care in lizards and young are born with their own survival instincts, and most species will feed on any small insects they can catch.
