After several hours of napping on a soft teeshirt in a box next to a space heater, the little one came to life–and how! He (I assume it’s a drake as they hatch first) is running all around my bedroom and peeping up a storm. He’s vigorous, agile, and LOUD! He’s also eating some mealworms and grass and had some water.
Tomorrow: we integrate the little one back into Honey’s brood, and I hope that will be easy. All we need is for Honey to swim next to the bank with her offspring.
