I am beginning to think that these monarchs are so delicate. I have no problem getting them to form a chrysalis. A good percentage of my eggs hatch. Most of my caterpillars form chrysalises. It is there that I have my problems. Tachinid fly, possible OE, failure to fly, failure to hang on to the chrysalis, so many deformed because their wings didnt dry correctly. The more I tried to help them find something to cling onto, the worse they were!
