Cricket has been sitting on eggs hoping to hatch them. And hatch them she did! This little one was the last to hatch and with all the other babies to attend to, Cricket left the nest, leaving this one still in her egg, and getting chilled.
So this morning I brought the egg in the house and set it up on my desk in a small box lined with tissues and set it under a lamp. And what do ya know, midway through my day, this little one appeared! (Photos taken with my iPhone)
Tonight after Cricket and her babies settle in, I will tuck this little one under Cricket's wing. And come morning, she will be happy as can be with her family.
A little TLC was all it took. Happy day!
