Well to answer my question of a few months ago, no the chrysalis's do 
not seem to have hatched for a second brood  this year even though there 
was plenty of green pipevine leaves and warm weather (until now). There 
is only one chrysalis we could monitor and it appears that the rats have 
found and eaten it (both ends chomped off the shell laying on the ground 
below where it was attached to the wall. There is another (we think) way 
up in a safe spot where we can hardly see it. There ought to be as many 
as a dozen more hidden about somewhere in the vicinity.
