He isn’t the cutest thing in the world, but “he” (or she) is plumping up for the next big event and it has to be soon. They’re suddenly so much larger as they’ve been eating voraciously for weeks now. I feed them several times a day. Although just over these last couple of days they seem to be slowing down…I’m not sure. They are still eating.
This is such an experiment and it’s the first time I’ve done it from eggs. All I can do is watch nature take its course. I did move them from a smaller container to a larger box and added toilet paper rolls (cardboard) in case they start to spin. Beth’s started a few days ago, so mine should start soon.
On another small note, it was my last teaching day…very mixed emotions especially with senior assembly taking place. Some decked out in their purple caps and gowns were my former students. A couple received awards and scholarships, nice to see.
