Here in Southeast Round Rock, TX Moved here in March 2020.. We had Martins in Houston for years... Our house wasn't up for 30 minutes and we had many looking thru the compartments. One pair settled in and had 3 chicks... one kept getting out onto the pouch and Mom wouldn't push it back in. They must be 1st year parents.. no nesting in the cube. The one on the pouch I put back in twice but missed him one day and he passed. Now they are not attending the nest with 2 others in it... I got some meal worm and started feeding them. After putting the meal worm in room temperature water in hopes of keeping them hydrated. I put some leaves and twigs in and cleaned out their mess... They have some feathers but are far from fledgling. Any suggestions ??
