Hello
At lunch time i noticed the shell was starting to pip and by tea time the new little horsfield hatchling had arrived i have bathed her and she had a good drink , she's so lively,the plastron look's a bit ridgy will it straighten out,we have named her midge,she is now in a tub on some kitchen roll in the tabletop home will it be okay to put her in the soil for the night with the other babies that hatched July,the egg yolk sac has absorbed.She is so active she's now trying to climb out :)
