Well it’s been 8 weeks and a slow process but at last we have ‘Silky’ the silk moth!
We have watched the pepper like eggs transform into little mini-mini-silkworms.
They grew, almost as we watched, while munching on squished mulberry leaves.
They grew over 2 weeks to about an inch and a half and then started spinning their cocoons. Another 2 weeks and one silkworm moth has emerged! Amazing little thing!
