Yay!!! I successfully hatched one Monarch egg and have several ready to hatch:O) I am rearing them on Common Milkweed and Swamp Milkweed. The first one hatched yesterday and I'm visiting the job today to check on the others. I'm so excited!! I also collected several eggs in my own garden and they should start turning dark soon now in prep for hatching:-)

Congratulations!!! I'm so envious. But, it's early yet for Michigan. I hope yours stay happy and healthy for you, and that you find many more.

Woo hoo!! Congratulations, congratulations!


RE: First Monarch cat in Madison

Happy news, John! Raise all the Monarchs you can and please keep us updated on your progress.

Still no sign of a spring mama Monarch in my garden but I keep hoping and looking. If no one shows up this spring, I'll be well prepared for the fall migration!


RE: First Monarch cat in Madison

I was wondering if anyone was getting any. Nothing
here so far. My milkweed is waiting.

RE: First Monarch cat in Madison

I have yet to see a Monarch here in the Philadelphia suburbs. My milkweed is really just getting going anyway.
