Butterfly Can't Fly
I have a Butterfly that can't fly. Something is wrong with one of it's wings. I found it in my garden outside. What can I feed it? will it drink the Nectar for Hummingbirds? Is that the same as Butterfly Food? I have some of that on hand.
Yes, you can feed it the hummingbird nectar. Also, Gaterade or Juicy Juice people have used. If the butterfly just emerged it could have a parasite, so make sure and sterilize, with a bleach/water solution, any items the butterfly might come in contact with that you would use again to raise a butterfly.
