Last week one of my monarch butterflies laid 64 eggs! I am hoping I will be able to raise them. It looks like most of the caterpillars hatched! All my milk weed is dying so if anyone has good milkweed and is willing to share I would like some.
I still have butterflies emerging!
The other day I asked how many Monarch eggs I found. I had found 50 that first day. Yesterday I found 203. Today I found 160 from my captive butterflies and 41 in the wild.
I am hoping that I can release most of them.
So far this year I have had only 6 sick monarchs! I keep the sick ones in an outdoor cage with milkweed in it. They have the chance to fly around, mate, lay eggs, and just enjoy more space then the other option I don’t like.
