Martin Colony History: 2018 will be my first try. 6 S&K B09s. 29 eggs - 8 fledged
2019 - 12 Troyer Horizontals with tunnels, 6 S&K B09s and 12 B011s all with tunnels. 43 eggs - 36 fledged
2020 - Rack 1 - 6 B011s, Rack 2 - 24 B011s, and Rack 3 - 24 Troyer Horizontals. All gourds have tunnels, porches and crescent/Conley 11 entrances; racks have predator guards. 161 eggs - 88 fledged

Hello to everyone,
Dropped my 3 racks today. 21 young and 4 fledglings from Rack 1, 34 eggs, 26 young and 18 fledglings from Rack 2 and 5 eggs and 22 young still in Rack 3. So, still have 39 eggs and 69 healthy young to go. But 22 new guys and girls are flitting around enjoying being out of the gourds.
Happy Martining, Mike
