    I’m not sure. We found it by our lake. We waited for the Mom to return but after two days we took it home. It is in a incubator (homemade). I’m not sure if it is alive?

    You are incubating an egg!

    Do you have an incubator? If not you can sometimes borrow one from a local 4-H club

    I have it on a heating pad (on low) with a heat lamp. I have a plastic cover for humidity.
