A DUPLICATED SWIFTLET FARM DESIGN FOR ALL

Mr.W decided to call me after reading my blog. He didn't know there were so many things to learn in Swiftlet farming. He thought he had known all that one needed to know. 

All this while he thought Swiftlet farming is all about getting someone to install some planks, open a hole and play some Swiftlet chirping sounds and then sit back and wait. He is waiting for the time of laughing to the bank. He waited and waited as time goes by, years after years that moment of laughing to the bank never came.

It is a 3 storey shop lot located in Johor. The 2 top floors were converted into a Swiftlet farm. It had operated for 6 years now and only have a few nests. The Swiftlet farm was built by a very famous consultant at that time. Ever since that he has not done anything to boost up the nest and bird population as he believes Swiftlet farming is all about waiting. Secondly, he has little knowledge in Swiftlet farming.

He had never felt frustrated until he stumbled upon my blog. After reading my blog he realised there are many problems in his Bh and wanted my help.

He wants to know how many tweeters should he installed in the Bh. He wants to know whether the position of the Entrance hole and the Second entrance hole to the nesting areas were correct and etc.

To be fair to him. I told him I am unable to provide all these information unless I could see the Exterior and internal of the Bh. Currently, I am busy preparing my oversea trip unless he could send me some pictures and I would evaluate them and provide him with some solutions to the Bh's problems. 



By looking at the picture I knew who built this Bh. This design has been copied and built again and again. There are so many Bhs sharing this same design in Johor. ( what makes you think birds would choose your swiftlet farms as all are the same).The width of the Open roof to the Entrance hole is about 6-7 ft which by today,s standard it is too small. A pond was built in front of the Entrance hole.

We don't build pond anymore as it causes many problems. There are better ways to do it instead of filling up that area with water. Leakage, water sipping into the walls and damage nesting plank. Maintenance is another problem.




Getting rid of weed is not easy and it is a breeding ground for mosquitos. Don't be confused. Swiftlet doesn't eat mosquitos. It was misunderstood by many who have little knowledge about the habitat of swiftlets . Go and ask a biologist if you knew one. It is also a good place for predators to hide to ambush their preys. It can be clearly seen that this Bh is creating its own problem.



This is not the correct way to install the External tweeters. The Tweeters are exposed to sun and rain and it will not last. I wonder the tweeters are still working. The tweeters are taking up the space of the Entrance hole making the Entrance smaller. It restricted Swiftlets from flying into the Bh easily.




The Second Entrance holes to the nesting area, one to the top floor and the other the lower floor. I have seen so many Bhs with this design. Do you think Swiftlets would fly to the lower floor using that Second Entrance hole that is virtually on the floor? 

If the hole on the floor works then all Bhs won't need Dog kennel or Open roof  which is located at the highest part of the building. Then we all could use the doors to our Bhs as an entrance hole.

It is required, at least 5 ft from the ground for any second entrance. A door entrance would solve all.





No internal Tweeters on all sides of the Nesting planks. Can you believe that? Isn't birds like to build nests around the Tweeters? If that is the case why all Nesting planks next to the wall have no internal Tweeters. Mr.W has to ask that very famous consultant. He should have the answer.

With the small Entrance hole and small second Entrance holes, it has reduced light from penetrating into the Nesting areas. I reckoned that the Nesting areas are already dark enough. I don't see the needs to paint the whole Bh black. But, these Bh walls are all painted black. It confused the Swiftlets. 

There are lots of birds droppings on the wall of the Entrance of the second Entrance holes. The droppings are scattered  horizontally. It shows Swiftlets turned back as they reached the second Entrance holes. It seems that they refuse to fly into the nesting areas. 

Well, there are more which I would like to share with you all through observing the pictures but to be fair to Mr.W let visit the Bh first.

Mr.W really needs to revamp the Bh if he wants to stay in this investment. Swiftlet farming is an investment. To me, it is  the best investment which could yield a very good extraordinary returns which no other investment could compare.

Good Swiftlet farming All!

拿我的收穫到燕窝加工中心 TAKING MY HARVEST TO A NEST PROCESSING CENTER


四月分的收穫仍被視為很好,雖然天氣是非常的悶熱。事實上,總重量来说(公斤)燕窝并沒有顯著減少。能看見的是燕窩是有點干,但是它并不容易被看的出如果一個没有將它与上個季節收穫的作比较。

我帶了一些燕窝去我的商業夥伴們的加工中心把燕窝洗干净。那裡的工作人員都是非常的熟练。其中一些已經在這行做了10年以上。

有許多類型的加工燕窝(成品)在市場上。它們可以很容易的在中醫店看的到。有2最常見清洗的燕窩在市場處於現在的需求量很大。其中較薄的有纹的。這是很受中國喜爱和需求量很大。

另一個是較厚的,它們是沒有纹的。它們是更加扎实和所有燕窝的纖維素都緊緊地在一起。通常每公斤的燕窝数量是比上个更高。這也是受到很多人追捧的。

就個人而言,我更喜歡後者。顯然,我們會提供客戶所想要的。在營養價值来说,兩者都是相同的。

被清洗好的燕窩將被送到中國。


(以上 清理好的燕窝,燕窝之間都有纹路和封线。這種類型的清理好燕窝受到許多人追捧尤其是中國)


(以上 圓杯型和更加扎实沒有纹路和封線。這種類型的燕窝需求量很也大





清理好的燕窝(杯型)。沒有羽毛和污垢的燕窝是很容易清洗的。因此,他們獲取更高的價格)。

TAKING MY HARVEST TO A NEST PROCESSING CENTER

The April month's harvest still considered good even though the weather was extremely hot. In fact, there is no significant decrease in the total weight (kg) of nests. What could be observed is the nests are a bit dry, but it can not be easily differentiated if one had never compared it to the previous harvests.

I took some of the nests to my business partner processing center to have them cleaned. The staff there are very skillful. Some of them have been doing this for more than 10 years. 

There are many types of cleaned Nests ( finish product) in the market. They could be easily seen at Chinese Medical halls. There are 2  most common cleaned nests in the market which are in great demand now. One which is thinner and there are gaps between grains. This is very well accepted in China and in great demand.

Another one is thicker, they are no gaps between the grains. They are more compact and all the nests cellulose are tightly held together. Often the number of nests per each kilogram is higher than the previous.This is also sought after  by many.

Personally, I would prefer the later. Well, obviously we would provide what customer wants. In term of nutritional values both are the same.  

The cleaned nests are to be sent to China. 


(above: Cleaned nests, with lines of gaps in between grains. This type of cleaned nests are sought after by many especially in China).


(above: A rounder cup and more compact without lines and gaps on the grains. This type of cleaned nests are great demand too.)






( Cleaning  nests ( cup type). A nest without feathers and dirt is easier to clean. Therefore, they fetch higher price).

炎熱的天氣,抬高燕窩價格 HOT WEATHER PUSHES UP NESTS PRICE



是非常的炎热。你能相信它是45C. 你可以煎个雞蛋在燕屋农场的水泥路面上。

現在你的燕屋农场是經受考驗。你的燕屋农场是否建有2層式磚塊的墙壁呢?你是否有放這些保丽龙在牆與牆之間? 如果你有聽從我的勸告你不應該擔心所有這些放热的問題。你辛苦賺來的錢,你已經投资入養燕現在是被保護著。它是比購買保險計畫还要好。

如果你沒有,那你就有大問題。燕子的数量将会减少由于燕子將遷移到别的燕屋农场,那些有对燕子更好的內部環境 (更加冷卻、 較低的溫度)。或許遷移到你鄰居的燕屋农场。

燕窩的質素会受到影响。更小的燕窝,肮脏有更多的羽毛,嚴重形狀的大小等等...数不尽的清單。

大多數的燕屋主從未想過這一点當他們建造他們的燕屋农场时。對大多數来说,所有的燕屋农场都是相同的。只要有木板,只要有高音喇叭和聲音,只要是够暗,燕子就會居留和做燕窝。

養燕是一項長期的投資。它延长从510年或更长。我們計畫,解決和預期燕屋农场每个月所面臨的共同問題或者超越。。。比如乾旱. 建立的燕屋农场應该可以抵禦意想不到的天氣。

有關于這種熱天氣有利也有弊。對一些人來說,這是一個機會,对其他人来说這是一場災難。

原始燕窩的價格上升到每公斤Rm3000.00以上了。對於那些知道如何管理他們的燕屋农场的人都笑着进銀行。我預其它會不斷上升,只要炎熱的天氣继续。

炎熱的天氣減少了原始燕窝的出產。現在品質白色和好形状的燕窝都越来越少了。品質的好都能賣的很高的價錢,現在的需求是越来越高。

大家有好燕屋农场。

HOT WEATHER PUSHES UP NESTS PRICE


The weather is extremely hot. Could you believe it is 45dg C. You could fried eggs on the concrete pavement at your Swiftlet farm.

Now your Swiftlet farm is put to a test. Is your Swiftlet farm built with 2 layered bricks wall? Did you put styrofoams between those walls? If you had followed my advice you shouldn't be worrying about all these insulation problems. Your hard earned money which you had  invested into Swiftlet farming is being protected now. It is better than purchasing an insurance plan.

If you didn't, then you have big problems. The bird's population will reduce as birds  would migrate to Swiftlet farms that have a better internal environment ( cooler, lower temperature). Perhaps migrating to your neighbour's farms.

The quality of the nests is affected. Smaller nests, dirty with more feathers, badly shaped size, etc....the list go on.

Most Swiftlet farm owners had never thought of this when they built their Swiftlet farms. To most all Swiftlet farms are the same. As long there are nesting planks, as long there are tweeters and sounds, as long it is dark enough Swiftlets would stay and build nests.

Swiftlet farming is a long term investment. It stretches from 5 to 10 years and beyond.We plan, solve and  anticipate  the common problems the farm faces monthly and beyond...like drought. Swiftlet farms should be built to withstand the unexpected weather.

There are pros and cons about this hot weather. To some, it is an opportunity, to other this is a disaster.

Raw nests prices had increased above Rm 3000.00 per kg. For those who know how to manage their Swiftlet farms are laughing to the bank. I anticipate it would keep increasing as long the hot weather continues.

The hot weather had reduced the outputs of Raw nests. Quality white and well-shaped nests are lesser now. The good quality ones could fetch a very high price and there are in high demand now.

Good Swiftlet farming All!

改造後燕子湧向燕屋農場 SWIFTLETS FLOCKING TO SWIFTLETS FARM AFTER REVAMP







從霹靂州北部的Q先生收到這些照片。我上一篇文章寫了關於他的燕屋农场在"人们仍然建立這種燕屋農場"。這是改造後的結果。眼見為實。

棒 !他從未見過這麼多的燕子在洞口玩。改造之前,沒有看到燕子在入口洞周圍玩。Q先生是震驚地看到這个,確實很開心。經過幾年的運作,這个燕屋农场從未經歷過這樣多的燕子活動。

这个改造给了这个燕屋农场新的生命。 我已經教他如何管理燕屋农场。什麼該做,什麼不需要做。他跟著我為他安排好的常規。他是一個非常有紀律的人。沒有失误的,他每個月都噴Love Potion。在數月內,燕子都湧向他的燕屋农场。他安裝了閉路電視在环绕區。燕子们都在燕屋农场中。太棒了 !

正如我所說,這个燕屋农场正为于一座養燕金礦。它需要的只是一個精心設計的燕屋农场。有許多的燕子在這裡。我估計在這裡80%的燕屋农场都建造的很差勁。

當雨季來臨時,很多燕子會把這个已经修改过的燕屋农场为家園。

大家有好燕屋农场。

SWIFTLETS FLOCKING TO SWIFTLETS FARM AFTER REVAMP




Received these pictures from Mr.Q from the North of Perak. I wrote about his Swiftlet farm in my last article " People Still Build This Kind of Swiftlet Farm". This is the result after the revamp. Seeing is believing.

Fantastic! He had never seen so many Swiftlets playing at the Entrance hole before. Prior to the revamp, no Swiftlets can be seen playing around the Entrance hole. Mr.Q was shocked to see this and indeed very happy. After few years of operation, this Swiftlet farm had never experienced Swiftlet activity like this.

The revamp has given a new life to the farm.  I had taught him how to manage the farm. What needs to be done and what not necessary. He followed the routine which I had planned for him. He is a very disciplined person. Without fail, he sprays Love Potion every month. Within a couple of months, Swiftlets are flocking to his farm. He had installed CCTV at the roving area. They were all inside the farm. Wonderful!

As I had said, this Swiftlet farm is sitting on a goldmine of Swiftlet farming. All it needs is a well-designed farm. There are many birds here. And I reckon that 80% of Swiftlet farm here is badly built.

When the raining season comes, many birds will make this revamped farm their homes.
Good Swiftlet Farming All.

人們仍建造這種燕屋農場 PEOPLE STILL BUILD THIS KIND OF SWIFTLET FARM



幾个星期前,我被邀請去改造位於霹靂北部的燕屋農場。关于位置的關注,這个燕屋農場正位于一個燕子的金礦。燕子的重要區,每個人都想要在這裡有一個燕屋農場。

它已經營了近3年。一个3層楼半狗洞設計20x80尺。(我會稍後加以說明)在同樣的附近有許多燕屋農場在這裡,而且他們都做得很好。(來源 ︰ 收穫的燕窝在5年內有3-5公斤)

但是,不知何故特别是這的燕屋農場的表现是真的很令人傷心...

燕屋主Q先生打电话给我的时候,我是正要在去機場的路上。我要去山打根。

" James先生,我是Q先生,我看到你的部落格,現在還正在讀。我希望我能读完它在一兩個星期内。我需要你的帮忙。

" Q先生,很高興聽到這個消息。如何可以幫到您呢?"

"James,我想邀請你來參觀我的燕屋農場。我的燕屋農場做得不好。我希望你可以帮我改造它。

"Q先生,我想設計、 內部環境、 音響系統等等都做的不对,并且没有妥善管理"

"我不認為如此James。据我所知,一切都很好"

你是肯定吗Q先生?如果一切都很好那么你現在應該會收穫很多公斤的燕窝。別介意讓我先查查我的行程,下個星期我會讓你知道,因为我目前這幾個月都有行程。

我只可以兩個月後才去參觀Q先生的燕屋農場,因为我還的把其他的改造工作完成。燕屋主Q先生在他朋友、 親戚和一些當地的所謂的师傅獲得的資訊和知識的帮助下建造了這個燕屋農場。

它有少过10个燕窝。大多數的燕子做了一两个燕窝之后都離開了。設計和內部的環境不是有益于燕子。它的設計和管理都是不妥当。我不能責怪他們,因為他們对養燕瞭解甚少。最糟糕的是他們會聽了任何想法不关是否這個想法很合理與否。





口孔的尺寸大概还小过2x2尺。他們建造了閣樓在环绕区但是却沒有任何用處。理由是"我們認為燕子会喜歡它"。這已經減少到大約4尺的高度从天花板到地板。

一旦燕子飛过入口洞它們不得不潜入90度不然会立即撞到牆上。正如你可以看到牆上都塗上了黑漆。嗯,看來這堵牆為了欺騙燕子。如果它們不小心它們會撞上它。

這個棘手的环绕區,大多數的燕子會避免逗留在這個燕屋農場。它們知道一旦它們进了......它們可能永遠出不來也許会死在燕屋農場中。只有那些有完美飞翔的燕子才可以生存在這個燕屋農場。



這個燕屋農場幾乎只有20个高音喇叭。並不感到驚訝,一些人仍然建造這種燕屋農場。 通常建議80-120个高音喇叭在20x70尺的大小 (还要看看木板的設計)。沒有壁角板在木板上,原因是燕子喜欢90度的角落。嗯,如果他們说的都是真的,那么這個燕屋農場现在應該已有幾百個燕窝。

木板系统的设计是直線型。沒有打横的木板。我不赞同許多师傅这些想法,被认为會產生更多的直的燕窝。拥有直的燕窝或有更多的燕子是主要的目标?哪一個更重要?你已經知道了答案。



通風孔也没有接上PVC管子。從通風孔,光線照亮整個燕屋農場。為了降低亮度,他們在内部許多地方塗上黑色。因此,創建了另外一個問題,然後試圖用一个問題来解决另一個問題。它会没完没了。根本原因是通風孔。只要被接上3-4尺的PVC管子在排氣孔就可以解決問題了。



光线來自任何地方。看看上面的照片。燕子會撞上它,因為它們認為這是入口孔。这个洞應该妥善的蓋着,不允許任何光線穿透進了燕屋農場。對於那些有进入过成功燕屋農場的人,他們都知道自己在談論什麼。 燕子經常撞到我們的头燈。它們跟隨光线,尤其是年輕的燕子。



我不喜歡互连洞位於燕屋農場的後面。

1) 燕子需要飛內深處才能找到互连洞。這會影響適應期,因此,它门会需要更长的时间来飛和探索低層。

2) 光線很难到達低層,因此創造了一片黑暗在低层。经常太暗而小燕子會避免飛到低層。



沒有門分離控制室和做窝區。你能相信嗎?照片告訴一千個詞。

1) 從放大器的霓虹燈會嚇唬燕子
2) 放大器接触到喷雾器的濕度和它會損壞放大器。

他們也擺了個桌扇在放大器旁邊来让它涼下來。這使整个燕屋農場的空氣在流动。整個內部環境是完全不堪设想的。

這个燕屋農場里还有一百多写不完個問題。

現在看完所有這些照片後它不再是一個驚喜。實際的事實......一些人還在構建這種類型的燕屋農場。為此保持下去...養燕的成功率將保持在 80-20。(80%失敗)

我向Q先生解釋了每一個問題,確保他明白它是如何發生和我們打算如何解決它。

它不是只是普通的指示和簡單的解釋。我想要他明白根本原因、 什么是光线密度、 飛行路徑、 完全黑暗等等,可以影響燕屋農場的內部環境和它們怎樣防止燕子從入住。

如果他明白這一切他今後不會作出任何更多的錯誤。或者至少,他不會盲目採取建議從那些所謂的师傅。

像往常一樣,改造計畫給了他占地分區,高音喇叭的定位,音響系統安裝,通風孔調整,拆除牆壁,重新置放的入口洞,等等...还有更多。

大家都有好燕屋農場 !

炎熱的天氣已到来。用Love Potion來保留年輕的燕子,防止移徙

PEOPLE STILL BUILD THIS KIND OF SWIFTLET FARM


A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to revamp a Swiftlet farm located in the North of Perak. As far as the location concerns, this Swiftlet farm is sitting on a Swiftlets goldmine. A Prime Birds Zone, everyone would want to have a Swiftlet farm here. 

It has operated for almost 3 years now. A 3 storey 20 x 80ft  with a semi-dog kennel design.( I shall elaborate later) There are many Swiftlet farms  here in the same vicinity and all of them are doing very well . (sources: harvest of 3-5kg of nests within 5 years).

but, somehow this particular Swiftlet farm performance is really sad....

The owner Mr.Q called me while I was on my way to the Airport. I was leaving for Sandakan.

"Hi Mr. James, I am Q, I saw your blog and I am still reading it now. I hope I could finish it in a week or two. I need you help"

"Hi Mr. Q, it is good to hear that. How can I help you?"

"Mr.James, I want to invite you to visit my Farm. My Swiftlet farm is not doing well. I hope you could help to revamp it."

"Mr. Q, I suppose the design, the internal environment, sound system,etc are not properly done and managed"

"I don't think so Mr.James. As far as  I know  everything is  fine."

Are you sure Mr.Q?.......If everything is fine then you should be harvesting many kg of nests right now. Never mind let me check my itinerary first and  I will let you know next week as  I am travelling often these few months."


I only could visit Mr.Q's farm  two months later as I have to complete other revamp jobs. The owner Mr.Q had built this farm with the help of his brothers based on the information and knowledge they acquired from friends,relatives and some local so called Sifus.

It has less that 10 nests. Most birds had left after building one or two nests. The design and the Internal environment are  not swiftlet  friendly. It is poorly designed and managed. I can't blame them as they have little knowledge about swiftlet farming. Worst of all they would listen to any idea without weighing whether the idea makes sense or otherwise.












The size of the Entrance hole is less than 2x2ft. They built a mezzanine floor at the roving area which served no purpose. Reason being "we think birds like it". This has reduced the height of the ceiling and the floor to around 4ft.

Once Swiftlets fly pass the Entrance hole they have to  dive  90dg down immediately to avoid  hitting the wall. As you could see the wall is painted black. Well, it seems that this wall was created to trick the Swiftlets. If they are not careful they would bang on it.

With this tricky roving area, most Swiftlets would avoid staying in this Swiftlet farm. They know once they got in they could never get out....perhaps die inside the farm. Only those that could maneuver perfectly would survive in  this Swiftlet farm.




There are barely 20 tweeters in this Swiftlet farm. It is not surprised, people still build this kind of Swiftlet farm.  It is recommended  80 -120 tweeters for a size of 20x70ft (subjected to the planking design) .There are  no corner boards on the planks, reason Swiftlets like 90dg corner. Well if what they said it true then this Swiftlet farm should have few hundred nests by now.

The planking system is straight type design. There are no planks crossing between the straight planks. I don't buy this idea which many Sifus claimed it would produce more straight nests. Is having straight nest or having as many Swiftlets to stay is the main criteria? Which is more important? You already knew the answer.







The Ventilation holes are not attached to a PVC pipe. The light ray from the Ventilation holes brightens up the whole Swiftlet farm. In order to reduce the brightness, they painted many parts of the internal black. Hence, creating a problem, and then trying cover that problem with another problem. It never ends. The root cause is the Ventilation holes. Just attached  3-4ft PVC pipes to the Vent-holes then the problems shall be solved.



The light came from all places. Look at the above pictures. Birds would bang on it as they think that is the Entrance hole. The holes should be covered properly without allowing any light to penetrate into the farm. For those who had gone inside a successful Swiftlet to harvest nest, they know what I am talking about.  Swiftlets often hit on our headlamp. They follow the light, especially young birds.






I don't favor Interhole located at the back of the farm.

1) Birds need to fly deep inside before they could find the Interhole. This would affect the adaptation period thus, it takes a longer time for them to fly and explore the lower floor.

2) It is harder for the light to reach the lower floor thus creating a total darkness below. Often too dark young birds would avoid flying down to the lower floor.








There is no door separating the control room and the nesting area. Can you believe that? Picture tell a thousand words.

1) The neon lights from the Amplifiers would frighten birds
2) The Amplifiers are exposed to the humidity produced by the humidifier and it would damage the Amplifier.

They also placed a table fan next to the Amplifier to cool it down. This creates a movement of air in the farm. The whole internal environment is totally up sided down.

There are hundred more problems in this Swiftlet farm which I can not finish writing.

Now after seeing all those pictures it is no longer a surprise. Actual fact.....people are still building this type of Swiftlet farm. As this keep goes on .....the successful rate of Swiftlet farming will remain at 80-20. (80% failed)

I explained every single problem to Mr. Q, making sure he understands how it happened and what we are going to do to solve it.  
  It is not just plain instructions and simple explanations. I want him to understand the underlying cause, how light density, flying path, total darkness, etc can affect the internal environment of the farm and how they deter birds from staying. 
  If he understands all this he would not make any more mistakes in future. Or at least, he won't take blind advice from those so called sifus. 
  As usual, the revamp plan was given to him which covers partitioning, tweeters positioning, sound system setup, Ventilation hole adjustment, removal of walls, re-positioning of Entrance hole, etc.....many more. 

Good Swiftlet farming All!
