Great news Dave. I'm also waiting to see if I will get eggs at my satilite in Ames, Iowa.
Mite control, heat venting, predator protection and additional feeding during bad weather add up to success.

Thanks Everyone for your kind words.. It seems like it has been a lot of work through the winter in preparing the two Trio houses with SREH Conley II entrances, ordering the Troyer Horizontal Gourds with Conley II entrance, ordering the MPP pole and discussions with the Manager at the golf course on what I was trying to do. Now that the Martins have showed up, and now first egg, It sure was worth it all.... Thank You All, everyone, for all your support through the last few years..
