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.
2021 - 54 gourds-214 eggs, 184 hatched, 168 fledged.

Season winding down; data this week about the same as last.
Rack 1 - 24 fledglings. Rack 2 - 77 fledglings. Rack 3 - 58 fledglings. Two gourds on Rack 3 still have young. The 4 young in one gourd are about to fledge and the 5 young in the other gourd are just 10 days after hatch. Keeping my fingers crossed all these guys make it and kick my total fledged this season to 168.
Happy Martining, Mike
