Eggs and caterpillars

The chicken eggs did not hatch. I did something wrong, but I don't know what. Anyway, I found monarch butterfly eggs!! I know how to take care of them. They hatch in about four days and then just feed the caterpillars milkweed. Milkweed is sacred around our property. I told my husband not to cut it down, so I now have about four weeds growing near our property line. If you want to read more about butterflies that we raised last year check my post here.
