Deformed Wing on Swallowtail Butterfly
I have this butterfly that hatched from the chrysalis and his wing is deformed. Should I still release him this way or should I keep him and feed it sugar water and flowers? He can't fly only flap his wings.
If the butterfly can't fly, it probably won't live long at all outside. I'm not sure how long it will live inside with you feeding it, but I have had other readers who have done this before. Check out this posting about caring for butterflies that can't fly
