    As long as something else didnt go wrong, they should be fine , be carefull not to hurt them while getting stuff off , useing a warm damp cloth may be gentaler to them.

    I have had to do that with every hatch-keep them moist with warm water while peeling shel of and it shouldnt be too hard to do-mine made it just fine-good luck and great hatch!
