Two new moths

Today I had two new moths emerge. One is another male and was completely soaked in his meconium. He was laying in a puddle when I found him so I got him up and in the breeding chamber. He seems okay but his abdomen is droopy and squishy. I hope nothing is wrong with him.

However, I know something is wrong with moth #3. It's s female, but I think she had an incomplete pupal case because it looks like her back stuck to the inside of the cocoon. Also her wings are very tiny. I put her in the breeding chamber but I don't know if she'll breed or lay eggs. She seems very out of balance with the small wings and huge distended abdomen.
