Re: Adding Troyer Tunnel to T14 house

Just talked with Adam Troyer from Troyer's bird Paradise over in PA. They highly recommended alternating them from side to front , they have most of their T14's houses converted over to the tunnels and there experience is that the martins love the tunnel add on to their houses.

Supplemental Feeding Question

I know this has been discussed on other boards but i thought I would ask again

My martins love crickets and currently I buy from Reptile foods @ https://reptilefood.com/

My question is are there other places that sell crickets ..?

Thanks for your help

Is there a pond nearby with a good clear flyway? They love those, especially when it gets hot like it is now.
Hi Chris! It is a swamp! They drink and bath in it! Lots of ducks and geese this spring!
Lots of bugs in that swamp!!!
