    Help! Monarch butterfly!
    I accidentally ripped a chrysalis yesterday, while attempting to rid my plants of aphids.

    But the butterfly survived!!
    but half of one of its wing is broken so cannot fly. Anyway I can feed it so it may still lay eggs on my plants if female?

    This is really difficult to say without seeing how much of the wing is damaged. I doubt if it will mate, and so therefore if it’s a female it won’t lay eggs.
