S&K Farm and Home Purple Martin House, 12 RoomCreate a rustic and exciting place for martins to roost in your yard with the S&K Farm and Home Purple Martin House. This charming unit provides these amazing birds the habitat they need, as they are entirely dependent upon manmade housing. The farmhouse-inspired shape brings a fun look to this piece, while its wealth of features creates a wonderful and functional home. The white, plastic sides ensure the shelter remains cool for nestlings, and ventilation holes near the top further regulate the temperature. The two main floors each have four separate apartments, for eight comfortable roosts measuring 8.25” long, 8.5” wide, and 6” tall each. Four additional apartments in the attic offer even more roosting spots, and each has a crescent shaped entry to deter starlings. The black, plastic floors on the main body offer traction for nestlings, and integrated nest bowls within the floor help martins place their nest. The door panels swing upward for regular nest checks, and an included decoy in this package aids in attracting the birds. Landing platforms and a wide perch beneath each entry on the main body give birds plenty of places to grip, and additional perches on the sides and top of the home create lookout areas. The dark green, steeply pitched roof brings dramatic shape to this unit, and its UV stabilized, copolymer plastic construction creates a durable abode. Place the S&K Telescoping Aluminum Pole and Ground Socket (not included) through the center of this home, using the triangular openings in the floors to properly place the shelter. The home snaps together without requiring any tools, making it fun for the whole family. Let martins establish a colony in your backyard with this Farm and Home Purple Martin House. Assembly required. Made in the USA.
