Jim took our old “bird cage” apart…all the wire was removed….the points ground down and then I ground most of the old paint off. We were working on a “hurry up” schedule…the large caterpillar had started traveling… looking for a place to make his chrysalis. It’s not fancy…but will do for now.
We screened it all in…put 2 flat slats in the top and one set at an angle for it to use to get to the top. We didn’t have it in the cage more than 5 minutes and it was headed up…right now its on one of the slats. Hope it doesn’t start building tonight.
This is the one that was almost an inch a day ago…It’ll be the next one up.
There are 5 smaller one is this plant.
The dark egg hatched yesterday….the lighter one hatched today….another should hatch tomorrow and the last 4 in a day or two.
A week or so ago I couldn’t spot an egg…now I can tell when they are getting close to hatching. They are so small when they first come out it’s almost impossible to spot them.
