In Captivity

MatingI have raised 43 Monarchs so far this year.  I am really excited because it has not been that great of a year yet.  I have only had 4 sick ones, which is encouraging!

Today, I went out with my sister/friend and found a lot! She took 10 home after I taught her how to bleach them.

The four sick ones I put in a huge cage that I got a garage sale last year.  I put some milkweed in there for them to enjoy.

One escaped.  Two of them mated. She laid 23 eggs just today! I am hoping for more.
