I have one little female who eclosed mid day yesterday. She appears healthy but has one misformed foreleg.
Is it possible for her to survive without the use of this leg? She can cling to the netting of the enclosure but when I attempted to release her late yesterday, she doesn't seem to want to fly, although I can see nothing wrong with her wings.
Should I try again to release her? I don't want to cause undue suffering for her but really don't know what would be best.
