    We have just had a monarch hatch, but the wings very small. The body is the usual size.
    Can anyone help?

    Cheers

    I have positive outcomes for Butterflies that cant fly due to too small wings or damaged wings or crumpled wings- by attaching new wings as per the Live Monarch Foundation (USA) site’s recommended interventions.Its painless for the Butterfly and its a joy for them to fly – and joy for me to see them fly off.

    The wings should expand over the coming hour. However, if the butterfly was restricted – either by not having enough space to expand its wings OR if the pupal case is caught up, then there is nothing that can be done for it.

    Hope that by the time you read this, you’ll have noticed a change in the butterfly.

    Fingers crossed!
