This is what it says, but it doesn't say what might be wrong. It looks pretty much straight forward without problems. Can anyone still help me? Thanks.

The Cocoon

About 6 days after the silkworms started making their cocoons, you can remove the cocoons and place them into a container you want the moths to emerge in. Be careful not to injure the cocoons. Line the container you place the cocoons in with white paper or wax paper.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Moth Emerging

In about 10 days after the silkworms started cocooning, they will emerge as moths. They will use a special spit to break up the silk so they can get out. One side of the cocoon will look wet when the moth is trying to emerge. When the moth finally emerges it will look wrinkled with crumpled wings. It will plump fluids throughout its body and wings
