Re: Hatch

Yesderday June 19th at 5:30pm the first of 6 eggs hatched.

This morning notice that the remaining 5 eggs are unhatched.

Is hatch#1 ahead for some reason? Or is it permature?

Re: Late laying eggs

Late egg laying here at Terrapin Cove in Southern New Jersey. First eggs came this week even though the martins arrived on time in late March. That means they took all of April and May delaying. If it is hot this summer like usual for these parts they may wish they started in the cold spring. http:/...

Re: 5 Eggs So Far

Dear Coolwhips

I think they like these gourds. The deep entrances keep them safe. Notice that they place their eggs at the very back,

We had egg#6 today.

Re: Gourd Cam

Whippy

The live stream is a montage of 8 cameras. It is on a playlist cycle that will show you the gourdcam almost all the time oplus views of gourd racks. Soon we will add a 9th camera to show the gourd cam exterior.

Good luck with your colony.
