    Over the last 10 days, we have had 5 deformed butterflies emerge from their Chrysalis’ which have been hanging for some weeks. The weather is colder even though we are getting sunny days.; which tells me they would not survive if they had not been deformed. The kindest thing to do was to euthanise them, which we did. We had another 10 chrysalis still hanging , and had been for some weeks, so we kindly euthanased them too to save them the struggle .

    My last two were disasters too Gaynor. And many of the late season ones I had needed extra care or assistance when the eclosed to get their wings sorted … proboscis also seemed a problem area with a couple that took several days to get that sorted. I guess its nature. But you have done well to have them so late! Mine were all done by mid June.
