Re: One Last Question

Quality housing, keeping sparrows and starlings away, martins nearby, having a nice, open location are all the right main ingredients for attracting them.
Unfortunately it is simply a waiting game and luck after that.
Keep us posted !

Re: Vionate or Osteo SA for purple martins?

I've never heard of adding anything to crickets, mealworms or eggs. And they MIGHT eat em if placed in the housing, but you might have better luck with a plastic spoon. Remember, they MUST be hungry, as in not eating for a couple days. And yes, there are many discussions and tips about this on here....

You might should just be patient.

Re: This cold / wet snap isn't helping any

There are topics on here y'all can read that gives detailed instructions on training your birds. It DOES take determination and persistence and it's easy to get frustrated. It usually always starts out with flipping crickets at them, then training them to eat eggs, then to eat either from a feeding ...

Re: Electric Predator Guards

My mistake. Must be just how it looks in your picture. I agree with how effective the netting is. I catch one or two snakes every year.

Re: Electric Predator Guards

I've thought about going with an electric guard setup and have talked with Malcolm about it briefly. I agree it's the most sure guard out there.

2017 Martin Season Begins

February 1st, and the earliest ever by at least 7 days, an ASY male arrived. He was joined by another male just this morning, the 2nd. Dreary, chilly, rainy weather outside, typical Louisiana winter, after being in the 70's the last few days. I got crickets in last week and they were separated and b...
