選擇理想的壁角板 CHOOSING THE IDEAL CORNER BOARD


理想情況下品質好的燕窝應該是白色,體積大,圆形,还有挺直背面180度。通常這種類型的燕窝是在直板摘下来的。它們可以獲取更高的銷售價格。

並不是所有從燕屋農場里收穫的燕窝都是100%由直板摘下的,有些是從角落、 牆壁、 天花板等等。這一切取決於木板形成如何在設計中。顯然,那些燕屋農場選擇盒型設計的會有更多的角落燕窝,相比那些選擇直板設計。平均,還有至少20-40%的燕窝建在燕屋農場里的是來自角落。

如果給我一個選擇我会更加喜歡直窝,但在現實生活中沒有一个燕屋農場可以直接產生100%的直巢。我們可以做到的是減少角落窝的數量,由安裝壁角板。

角落窝不受到青睞是因為它的價格比較低。在某些情況下,它可能低至50%与直窩的價格相比。如果你的燕屋農場有很多角落窝那麼你每月的產量利潤將受到影響。

然後,我们必須知道哪种和哪些類型的壁角板来安裝。為您的資訊,並不是所有類型的壁角板都是相同的。它的形狀及尺寸影響造在它的燕窝上。

從我多年的經驗建設燕屋農場,讓我與你分享壁角板的形狀和大小是如何影響您燕屋農場里的燕窝。

以上的照片顯示了3種類型的燕窝。

1) 從直木板的燕窝。這是大多數人选择的,因為它們是更大和更重。它們可以加工成为滿杯的燕窝。

2) 從新月型的壁角板,可以通過被认为直窝。

3) 從剪切的壁角板。雖然90度被增加到130度。通常它們仍然被认为是角落窝。

這是來自90度没有任何壁角板的角落燕窝。價格可能是30-50%低於直窝。

許多人仍然相信没有壁角板燕屋農場會有更好的成長率。這是一個神話,它是不真實的。

以上的照片显示的燕窝從剪切的壁角板。在中间仍然是一个駝峰。它只是降低了角度。像大多數的燕窝采购商仍認為這是角落窝。這種類型的壁角板在好多年前是相当被受用的,因为当时还没有新月類型。

那是沒有選項可供選擇。剩餘的木板被切斷,做成直的角板。剩餘的木板被使用並且這可以省下一些錢。

以上的照片是從新月型壁角板收穫的燕窝。它是幾乎直的。它可以通過为直窩。它增加了角度達 160度。我認為這是最佳的壁角板可用。

(与直板的燕窝和剪切壁角板的燕窝比較)

(燕窝被建在新月型的壁角板上)

(燕窝被建在剪切壁角板上)

剪切壁角板的缺點:

1) 買家会认为它們為角落窝。
2) 它只會从90度增加到很小的度数。
3) 它是有差距(孔)在木板的後面。害蟲可以隱藏,並在那裡繁殖。
4) 燕子可能在洞裡築燕窝。(增加角落窝的數量)

在木板之中,我會選擇那些帶褐色的。它們可以抵禦真菌和不怕水(高濕度)。好的Meranti是很難找到了。經常还是很昂貴的。

如果你能找到它們買一些和保持。

CHOOSING THE IDEAL CORNER BOARD

Ideally a good quality Nest should be white, big in size, round shaped and have a straight back of
180 dg. Often this type of Nest is harvested from straight plank. They fetch a higher selling price.

Not all Nests harvested from a Swiftlet farm are 100% from straight planks, some are from corners, walls, ceilings, etc.  It all depends on how the Nesting planks formation being designed. Obviously Swiftlet farm opted for the checker box type design would have more corner nests than those opted for straight plank design. Averagely, there is at least 20-40% of Nest built in a Swiftlet farm comes from the Corners. 



If given a choice I am sure all would prefer Straight Nests but, in reality there is no Swiftlet farm that could produce 100% Straight Nest. What we could do is to reduce the number of Corner Nests by installing Corner Boards. 

Corner Nest is not favored because the price is lower. In some instances it could be as low as 50% lower than the price of Straight nest. If your Swiftlet farm has lots of Corner nests then your monthly yield profit would be affected.

Then again one must know which and what types of Corner Board to install. For your information, not all types of Corner Board are the same.  The shape and its size affects the quality of the Nest that built on them.

From my many years of experience building Swiftlet farms, let me share with you how Corner Board affects the shape and size of the Nests in your Swiftlet farm.



The above picture shows 3 types of Nests. 

1) Nest from a Straight plank. This is the most sort after because they are bigger in size and heavier. They could be processed into full cup nests.

2) From a Crescent corner Board, could pass for a Straight nest. 

3) From a Cut Plank Corner Board. Though the 90dg angle has been increased to130dg. Often they are still consider as Corner Nests.






This is a Corner nest from a 90dg Corner without any Corner Board. The price could be 30-50% lower than the Straight Nests.

Many still believe that without the Corner Boards a Swiftlet farm would have a better growth rate. This is a myth and it is untrue. 





The above picture shows a Nest from a Cut Plank Corner Board. There is still a hump at the middle. It only reduces the angle. As most Nests buyer still consider this as a Corner Nest. This type of Corner Board was favored many years ago when the Crescent type was not available then.

There was no option to choose from. The left-over planks were cut to make into Straight Corner board. The left-over Planks were used and this saved the builder some money.




Above is a picture of a Nest harvested from a Crescent Corner Board. It is almost straight. It could pass for a Straight nest. It increases the angle up to 160dg. I consider this as the best Corner Board available. 

( Comparing Nests from Straight Plank and Cut Plank Corner Board)

( Nest built on a Crescent Corner Board)

( Nest built on a Cut Plank Corner Board)

The disadvantages of the Cut Plank Corner Board:

1) Buyer consider them as Corner nests.
2) It only increases the 90dg angle by a small degree.
3) There is a gap ( hole) at the back of the Board. Pest could hide and breed there.
4) Birds may build Nests inside the hole. ( Increases the number of Corner nest).

In term of wood material I would choose those brownish colored ones. They could withstand fungus and not afraid of water ( high humidity). Good Meranti is hard to find now. Often expensive. 

If you could get hold of them buy some and keep.

Good Swiftlet Farming All!

参观一個3層樓的燕屋農場在哥打巴魯 Visiting a 3 Storey Swiftlet Farm in Kota Bharu

一个漂亮的3層楼燕屋農場在吉蘭丹哥打巴魯。位於一個稻田20x60的獨立燕屋農場。如果位置是標準那么這個燕屋農場就坐在正確的地方。

可悲的是2年半的时间後它都只有12个燕窝。出了什麼问题呢?主人試過所有的努力,但是無濟於事。進行了大量的改造後,燕窝的數量仍然保持不變。現在我是第三位被邀請來解決這個問題的人。

為了要解決這些出問題一定要找出她的根源。讓我們找出根本的原因。

一個建的很漂亮的燕屋農場,內部有双層的磚塊。位置在一个稻田包圍的地方。我第一个觀察到的地形告訴我認為这个燕屋農場的内部环境可以很輕鬆的管理,如果它的結構和燕屋農場的設計能與環境相協調。内部环境很好,平均從26-29C。由於位置,濕度根本不是問題。
它清楚地表明建筑燕屋農場的人缺乏養燕的技巧。每1尺都有排氣孔的距離。這會影響燕屋農場內部的空氣流通。
还有很差劲的高音喇叭系統安裝。我不明白為什麼高音揚聲器不是安裝在角落的原因。我們都知道燕子做燕窝在角落。我們也知道燕子圓形飞向,离牆1-2尺的地方。我們不能忽视所有這些,如果我們想要建立一個成功的燕屋農場。不過,又令人驚訝的是一些人仍然不要安裝高音喇叭在角落。
我不會接收在中間有一個開放式的房間为做窝的想法。除非它不可以避免像一些商店单位。但這是一个為燕子而建的建築屋。
這个燕屋農場裡有太多間房間開口。開口影響空氣的流通和光线的密度。雖然它是一個20x60尺,3 層楼的燕屋農場但是造窝区的面積太小......只有20 x 10 (每层楼)。


然而,令我吃驚的是......如果周围環境充滿水份像稻田,但是為什麼燕屋農場需要這麼多的通風孔呢?其次......為什麼內部的牆體都被水池包围呢?濕度不会太高嗎?


这个燕屋農場的設計採用位於中間巨大的互连洞10×10尺的大小在每一层。那是经过了解越大的互连洞,燕子们就越容易飛到較低的樓層。這是很主觀的,除非它和燕屋農場的大小協調。由于燕屋農場只是20x60尺,互连洞就位於中间这霸占了很大的空间只剩下5尺在互连洞的两旁。有这么大的互连洞在这么小的燕屋農場,它占了造窝區的空間。大的互连洞允許光線滲透到整個燕屋農場使整个燕屋農場变的太亮。(有益于大的燕屋農場,对小的燕屋農場却没有益处)

為了要解決這个問題,建筑燕屋農場的人把整個燕屋農場涂上黑漆。這越搞越糟糕。不就太亮或太暗。难怪沒有燕子住在這個燕屋農場中。大的互连洞設計在中間给大的燕屋農場是好的,但是不是用于20x60尺的燕屋農場。

我問燕屋主......"那些人來改造你燕屋農場的人沒有告訴你這些嗎?"
他的回答是"他們只是來改造,但是沒有解釋任何事情。我以為他们是专家"

每個人都可能是專家,如果你將它們視為一個专家。你对师傅的感觉是您对养燕的理解和知識。如果你对养燕知道的很少,那么任何一个只是拿起一本养燕的傢伙都可以是你的師傅。

這就是跟燕屋主说了这些。


你可以看到多数的高音喇叭都集中在作窝区的房內。而其餘剩下的地方都是空的。根本没有燕窝被造在有很多高音喇叭的的房間内。在照片中那些是假燕窝。要檢查音響系統是如何有效,我叫燕屋主开了聲音。聲音不是平衡......如果你是在房間内你的耳朵會痛。如果你在互连洞您没什么聽的到。互连洞只有一個或兩個高音喇叭。數量是不夠的。要吸引燕子到較低的楼层,互连洞必須有很多的高音揚聲器。在10×10尺大小的問候,它應該有8-12个高音揚聲器。

我到过很多成功的燕屋農場,有上千个燕窝的燕屋農場。燕聲音來自各個角度。我們要模仿這種類型的環境,這就是為什麼人們叫它環繞聲 (真實聲音)。如果高音喇叭只固定的在房間裡它不會能夠誘使燕子留下來做燕窝。


再一次燕子的自然飛性是一個圓性的飞向。如果開放位於旁边(左边或右边),那么就更加容易盘旋尤其是幼燕子。(幾個月大的燕子)。如果在这个燕屋農場飞行是困难的它們會遷移。

你知道有中間开放的想法是從哪裡來嗎?我想你不会知道。

大多數人擁護這種想法純粹是複製(順著)根本沒有根据的起源。我叫它为"盲目追隨"

這個想法來自之前70年代和80年代建成的商店单位。底層通常是為商務活動而一楼和2是住宅。經常有房間在前面、 後面和濕的地區 (廚房) 在中間的。當所有這些建築物被轉換了成燕屋農場(濕區)的中間部分製成開放式的屋頂。

這些日子为了节省成本他們沒有把墙壁拆除。所以前面的房間的門(一樓)位於中間变成了開放的房間(築巢區)。隨著時間的推移它們被燕子居住。他們可以做的更好如果開放就在旁边。

當人們參觀這些商店他們就跟着(順著)他們所看到的......真正的事實是...如果開放是在旁边会更好。


現在我的計畫是要拆除那些分區,並將它們移到前面更靠近环绕区。這將增加造窝區的大小。

黑漆一定要去除。這個燕屋農場不就是太亮或太暗。更本沒有反差。我需要創建一個刚刚好的環境,既不太亮,也不太暗。(不太亮也不太暗之間是燕子喜歡的)

它不是一件容易的事,但這是可以做的到。這個燕屋農場有太多的缺陷。燕屋主已參加了幾個研討會。他還得知從少數所謂的眾所周知的师傅学习。从燕屋農場的設計到音響系統的安裝都是由他的導師 (師傅) 的建議。

現在他知道他得知的這一切時。一个細節的改造方案已交给這伟燕屋主。他必须在一周內完成这个改造。工作從上午9-下午3点。

大家有好燕屋農場

Visiting a 3 Storey Swiftlet Farm in Kota Bharu

A beautiful 3 storey Swiftlet farm in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. A  20 x 60 standalone, located at a Padi field. If location is the criteria this farm is sitting in the right place. 

Sadly after 2.5 years it has only 12 nests. What has gone wrong? The owner had tried all effort but with no avail. After numerous revamps had been done the number of nest still remains the same. Now I am the third person invited to solve this problem. 

In order to solve this one has to find out the root cause of the problem.  Lets find out the root cause.





A beautifully built Swiftlets farm with double layered bricks. A location surrounded with Padi fields. My first observation of the landscaping tells me that the farm micro could be easily managed  if the structure and the design of the Swiftlets farm could be harmonized with the environment.The micro is good, ranging from 26-29C averagely. Given the location, humidity was not a problem at all.

But to my surprise.... if the environment filed with water like Padi filed why does the Swiftlets farm needs so many Ventilation holes? Secondly.... why the internal walls are surrounded with water pools? Wouldn't the humidity be too high?


It clearly shows the builder lack the skill of Swiftlet farming. A distance of 1 feet per Vent-hole. This would affect the movement of air inside the farm.

The design of the Swiftlets farm adopted a huge inter hole size of 10 x 10ft  at the middle of the farm throughout all floors. It was understood that the bigger the Inter hole the easier for the birds to fly to the lower floor. This is subjective unless it harmonies with the size of the Swiftlet farm. Given the Swiftlet farm was only 20 x 60ft, the inter hole located right at the middle taking lot of space leaving both sides of the inter-hole 5 ft . With such big inter holes in a small farm it took up the space for nesting areas. Big inter hole allows light to penetrate into the whole farm making it too bright. ( good for big farm , bad small farm)

To solve this problem the builder resort to painting the whole farm black. This is making it worse. Either too bright or too dark. No wonder birds are not staying in this Swiftlet farm. The design of a big inter hole at the middle of the farm is good for big sized Swiftlet farm but not for a 20 x 60ft .

I asked the owner..."didn't those who came and revamp your Swiftlet farm tell you all these?"
His reply was " they just came and revamp and didn't explain anything. I thought they were experts". 

Everybody could be an expert if you perceive them as an expert. Your perception of the Sifus is subject to your understanding and knowledge in Swiftlet farming. If you knew very little then any fellow who has just picked up a book in Swiftlet
 farming could be your Sifu.

This is what I told the owner.











Again poor tweeter system installation. I don't see the reason why tweeters are not installed at the corners. We know that Swiftlets build nests at the corner. We also know that they fly in a circular motion 1-2 ft away from the walls. We couldn't deny all these if we want to build a successful Swiftlet farm. But then again surprisingly people still don't install tweeters at the corners.

You could see most tweeters are concentrated  in some nesting rooms only. While rest of the areas left emptied. No nests were built in the rooms that have many tweeters. Those in the pictures are artificial nests. To check how effective the sound system was I asked the owner to switch on the sound.  The sound is not balance...if you are inside the room your ears will hurt. If you are at the inter hole area you hear little. The Inter holes have only one or two tweeters. The number is insufficient.  To lure Swiftlets to the lower floor the inter -hole must have many tweeters. In regards to the size of 10x 10ft it should have 8-12 tweeters.

I have been to many successful Swiftlet farms which have thousand of nests. The Swiftlet sound came from all angles. We want to imitate this type of environment that is why people call it surround sound ( real sound). If tweeters are only fixed in rooms it wouldn't be able to lure  birds to stay and build nests.



I wouldn't buy the idea of having an opening of a nesting room at the middle. Unless it can not be avoided like some shop lots. But this is a building built for Swiftlet.

Again by nature Swiftlet fly in a circular motion. If the opening is at the side ( Left or Right) it would be easier for them to maneuver especially young birds.( few months old). If flying is hard in this Swiftlet farm they will migrate.

Do you know where the Idea of having the opening at the middle came from?  I guess not.

Most people who championed this idea is purely copying (follow) it, without weighting its nature of origin. I call it "blindly follow".

This idea came from shop lots built before the 70's and 80's. The ground floor is usually for business activity and the 1st and 2nd are for residential. Often there are rooms at the front ,the back and a wet area ( kitchen) at the middle. When all these buildings were converted into Swiftlet farms the middle section ( wet area) are made into an Open roof.

Those days to save cost they didn't hack down the walls. So the front room ( 1st Floor) door which located in the middle works as opening to the room ( nesting area). As time goes by they are occupied by birds. They could have done it better if the opening is at the side.

When people visited these shop lots they followed (copy) what they saw.... The actual fact is .... it would have been better if the opening is at the side.



This Swiftlet farm has too many inter-room openings. The openings affect the movement of air and the light density.  Though it is a 20 x 60ft, 3 Storey Swiftlet farm but the nesting areas are small....20 x 10 ft only ( per floor).

Now my plan is to remove the partitions and move them further front closer to the roving area. This would increase the size of the nesting areas.

The black paint has to go. This farm is either too bright or too dark..there is no contrast. I need to create an environment that is just nice neither too bright nor dark.( between too bright and too dark which liked by birds).

It is not an easy job but it can be done. This farm has too many flaws.The owner has attended few seminars. He has also learned from few so called well known Sifus. The design of the farm to sound system installation were the advise of his mentor ( Sifu).

Now he knows what he had learned all this while. A detail revamp plan has been given to the owner of this Swiftlet farm. He has to complete the revamp in a week. Working from 9am-3pm.

Good Swiftlet Farming All!

一切都是关于養燕的激情 ALL ABOUT PASSION IN SWIFTLET FARMING

自从我的上一篇文章到现在已經有一段的時間了。我甚至從讀者收到電子郵件和Whatsapp一些请求和想要我繼續寫作。

他們說......"James,如果你停止寫作將沒有人提供關於養燕有用和邏輯的資訊"

太感動了 !另一個人說"一些只是讲故事,但是你的是純技術和技能"

我想感謝他們的支持。別擔心,我不會停止寫作的,哈哈。養燕是我的挚爱。我养燕是因為我熱愛它。至于它的金钱回饋也是其次。

我沉默了一会是因为我有一项巨大... 大型的项目需要處理。如果時間允許的話,我會在這裡慢慢提供消息的。当然它是与养燕有關......還有什麼是更令人驚奇和令人興奮的比看到燕子飛入燕屋農場?還有什麼比收集你的收穫每2-3周內賣出更多令人愉快呢?顯然,它仍然是养燕和对我来说养燕的行业仍然是#1要进入的業務。

這裡是一张照片,我从使用Love Potion的用户收到的。極好的.......点滴在一塊木頭上面。看看那些燕子屎。一些人經常會問......那些燕子屎有什麼如此特別。对于那些不精通在养燕的人它看起来并不代表著什麼。對他們的来说大便只是一堆大便......哈哈。

對我們而言,这代表了一切......這代表著"金錢"。一个现象显示燕屋農場的改善。是的白色的燕子屎......,我們想要白色的燕子屎,因为是由一些幼燕子留下的。更多年輕燕子来你的燕屋農場玩和居留就有更高的成功率場。你如何做到這样?用Love Potion來吸引它們。就是那樣簡單。

為什麼在木頭上点滴Love Potion是那么有效。。。有人可能會問。香氣吸收進了木板,慢慢地通過蒸发来釋放氣味。因此香味將保持更長的時間在燕屋農場里。

这不是驚訝的 (上面的照片) 那些白色的燕子屎就是在滴頭的木板周圍和下面發現,因为燕子就是那么喜欢Love Potion的氣味。最重要的是這是我們想要的白色燕子屎。它們那么喜歡可能有垂挂在Love Potion的瓶子上......這是令人驚歎的。

我相信成功的燕屋農場是有可能和容易可達到的。使用正確的东西,使用合適的產品,瞭解燕子需要什麼,善於觀察,等等...和一些逻辑......很快的你也將有一個良好的成功燕屋農場。如果我能做到我不明白為什麼你不能。

大家有好燕屋農場 !

ALL ABOUT PASSION IN SWIFTLET FARMING


It has been a while since my last article. I even receive emails and Whatsapp from readers who plea and wanting me to continue writing.

They said...." James, if you stop writing no one will provide useful and logical information on Swiftlet farming ".

I am so touched. Another one said " most are just story telling but yours are pure technical and skill".

Well I would like to thank them for their support. Don't worry I won't stop writting....lol. Swiftlet farming is my PASSION. I did it because I love doing it. Reward in term of monetary comes secondary.

I was away because I have something huge..a Mega project to handle. I will up date here if time permits. Of cause it is related to Swiftlet farming.....what else is more amazing and exciting than watching the birds flying into the farm? What else is more enjoyable than collecting your harvest every 2-3 weeks to sell? Obviously it is still Swiftlet farming and to me  Swiftlet farming is still  the # 1 business to go in.


Here is a picture I received from a user of Love Potion. Brilliant ...dripping it onto a piece of wood. Look at the birds dropping. People often ask....why's so special about the birds' shit. Well for those who are not well versed in Swiftlet farming it means nothing. To them a shit is just a shit.....ha..ha.

To us it means everything.... it means "money". A sign indicating the improvement of the farm. Yes white-shit ....we want white-shit which often left by young birds. The more young birds play and stay the higher the rate of success your farm would have. How do you do this? Use Love Potion to attract them. It is as simple as that.

Why dripping Love Potion on wood is so effective ..some may ask. The Aroma absorbed into the wood and slowly releases the scent through vaporization. Therefore the scent will stay longer in the farm .

It is not surprised ( the above picture) that white-shits are found around and on the wood below the dripper as Swiftlets like the scent of Love Potion so much. Best of all it is the white-shit we want. They like it so much they might have clinged onto the Love potion bottle....that is Amazing.

I believe succesful Swiftlet farming is possible and easily attainable.  Use the right things, use the right products , understand what birds want, good observation, etc...and some common sense.... soon you would have a good successful farm too. If I can do it I don't see why you can't.

Good Swiftlet farming All!

海警攔截印尼船 起15.4萬走私燕窩

 (巴生24日訊)巴生港口海警成功偵破,一艘把燕窩藏在魚桶中試圖走私入境我國的印尼物物交換船,起獲總價值15萬4000令吉的燕窩。
 巴生港口海警行政主任阿末沙費迪警監指出,海警是在1月21日傍晚6時在巴生南港海域發現一艘來自印尼Panipahan的物物交換船。
 “由于發現形跡可疑,海警就攔截有關船隻,當時船上共有4名印尼籍男子,年介20歲至30歲之間。”
 他說,根據船員說法,該船載了數十桶魚,將在巴生ASA NIAGA私人碼頭停泊下貨,怎知道海警發現魚桶中竟有燕窩藏在其中,揭發走私燕窩案。
 “經過點算之后,海警共發現86包燕窩,重量約51.6公斤,根據燕窩一公斤約3500令吉的售價,起獲的燕窩市值15萬4000令吉。”
 他說,經過調查后,發現有關燕窩未獲得我國農業部的衛生證明,可說是非法燕窩。
 “我們目前已扣留4名船員,并將援引衛生部檢驗服務第11(1)條文調查此案;有關起獲的燕窩也將交給馬來西亞檢疫和檢驗服務(MAQIS)檢查。”

正确的頻率由好的放大器而产生 CORRECT FREQUENCY GENERATED BY GOOD AMPLIFIER

(取自我的部落格的視頻)

這些視頻都是有數千只燕子擁進燕屋農場。它有跟好的內声和外聲,好的放大器和好的高音喇叭才可以傳送正確的頻率產生的。

正如我之前寫過,没有頻率就沒有聲音。不同的哺乳動物,產生不同的頻率当它们之间交流时。它與声量無關。如果声量就是答案,那么我們只需要把放大器的声量放大来吸引燕子。但是這是行不通的。

幾天前,一位讀者打电话来,想要一个可以支撑500个高音喇叭的放大器。

"James师傅,你有没有可以支撑超過500个高音喇叭的放大器嗎?"

当我听到这的时候我很驚訝。在互聯網上提供了那么多年的資訊,然而還是有些人不明白。可以支撑大量高音喇叭的放大器並不代表它是一個很好的放大器。事實上,我不会要用這樣的放大器。

我們不是在这里競爭放大器能容納更多的高音喇叭。我們在這裡競爭其燕屋農場裡有更多的燕窝。看來這已偏離了燕屋农场的目的。

品質好的聲音和强大功率的放大器是兩個不同的東西。好的声音代表由放大器播放出来的頻率是在燕子听觉的能力(Khz)

一個非常大的声量,由強大的放大器播放出来不一定可以傳送正確的頻率。因此,經常可以看到非常響亮的外聲,但却不能吸引很多燕子的燕屋農場。

大多數的放大器......我說90%不是为燕屋農場而設計使用的。它們可能是名牌或包裝來看,這用于燕屋農場。但是在現實生活中,它們是來自同一家卡拉Ok的货,是用於人类的設計和調整 (頻率的設置是為人类聲樂)。不同的是,包裝和外觀看上去。

因此,你可以找到"麥克風入口和出口""麥克風音量控制",等等。

我的朋友們经常取笑那些使用這些放大器的人。"往好的方面看"他說,"在某种情况下如果燕屋農場失敗,你仍然可以把你的燕屋農場變成卡拉Ok酒廊"

我的客戶曾經問我。"James,有這麼多的高音喇叭和放大器在养燕市場上,为什么你仍然还出你自己的高音喇叭和放大器呢?" 他指的是Hi-Nest B-52燕声頻率放大器和GS18高音喇叭。

我的答案很簡單。我找不到我要找的東西。通過我多年的經驗,我測試了這麼多的高音喇叭和放大器。没有一个可以在我的积分榜上拿到A,所以,在沒有選擇的情况下,我只好找些真的可以引誘燕子到燕屋農場居留和做燕窝。

燕屋農場是具有從聲音設備的使用到香氣的好組合。

以上的答案给"為什麼更多人正在使用Hi-Nest放大器"

大家有好燕屋農場。


CORRECT FREQUENCY GENERATED BY GOOD AMPLIFIER




( Latest Video)



( Video taken from my blog)

These are the  videos of thousands of bird swarming into the farms. It has got to do with good external and internal sound generated by good Amplifiers and Tweeters that could transmit the correct frequency.

As I have written before without frequency there is no sound. Different mammals, produce different frequencies when they communicate. It has got nothing to do with loudness. If loudness is the answer then all we need to do to attract birds is to increase the volume of our Amplifier. But that doesn't work.

Couple of days ago, a reader called and wanted an Amplifier that could at least support 500 tweeters.

"Sifu James, do you have an Amplifier that could support more than 500 tweeters?"

I was surprised to hear that. After so many years of providing resourceful information on the internet,  yet people still don't get it . An Amplifier that could support such a big number of tweeters doesn't mean it is a good Amplifier. In fact I wouldn't want such Amplifier.

We are not here to compete whose Amplifiers could hold more Tweeters. We are here to compete whose Swiftlet farm has more nests. It seems it  has strayed from its Swiftlet farming objective.

Good quality sound and big power Amplifier are two different things. Good quality sound means the frequencies generated by an Amplifier are in the hearing capability of Swiftlets ( Khz).

A very loud sound generated by a powerful Amplifier may not transmit the correct frequency. Therefore it is common to see Swiftlet farm with loud external sound but unable to attract many birds.

Most Amplifiers ....I would say 90% is not designed for Swiftlet farming use. They may be branded or packed to look as it is for Swiftlet farm use. In reality they came from the same Karaoke stock which designed and tuned for human use (frequency set for vocal). The only different is the packaging and the exterior looks.

Therefore you could find  "Mic inlet and outlet", "MIC volume control", etc.

My friends used to make fun of those who used these Amplifiers. " Look at the bright side" he said,
"In the event if the Swiftlet farm failed you still can turn your Swiftlet farm into a Karaoke lounge".

My customers once asked me. " James, there are so many Tweeters and  Amplifiers for Swiftlet farm in the market who do you still come with your own Tweeters and Amplifier?" He was referring the the HI-Nests B-52 Swiftlet frequency Amplifier and the GS18 Tweeter.

My answer was simply. I can't find what I was looking for. Through my years of experience I have tested so many Tweeters  and Amplifiers. Non could really score A in my sheet card, therefore I have no choice but to find something that really  could lure Swiftlets into farm to stay and to build nests.

Swiftlet farm is all about having all good combinations from sounds equipment use to aroma.

The above answers to " why more people are using HI-Nest Amplifier".

Good Swiftlet farming All!


STILL THE MOST POWERFUL AROMA IN THE SWIFTLET FARMING INDUSTRY.

KUALA KRAI...不止是地点那么简单 KUALA KRAI..IT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT LOCATION

最高預期和最成为话题的燕子城,始建于2011年,現在已經成為一個燕窩鬼城。

在這裡70-80%的燕屋农场都不再运作了,这就是说没有聲音或供水。我想大多數的業主已經放棄了希望。電力保險箱和供水的錶都被拆除了,要不就是由管理局(未付的帳單)或小偷拿走了。

窗口和前门都被小偷偷走了。它是被遺棄的小鎮。我还以为它原本是一個有保安的燕子城,看来它不是。

對於那些在这里有燕屋農場的人就知道我所指的燕子城是那一个。是的,它就是Kuala Krai Eco Park3年前左右推出的。

有大約60個單位在這裡,只有極少數仍在運作。在这里没有最佳的燕屋農場。最佳的燕屋農場只有X个燕窝。其余的全是失败。

沒有人想要建造一個失敗的燕屋農場。有一个说法 “没有人会计划失败,但是他的计划的确是失败了"。但是对于这个燕屋農場看来的确是计划了失败。

為什麼我要這樣說?好吧...讓我們看看以下的燕屋農場的内部你就會知道我的意思。

上周我被Y先生邀請,去挽救他在Kuala Krai 的燕屋農場。他在這兒有一個單位。当时3年前它刚刚推出的時候,要买到一个单位並不容易。它卖的好像熱蛋糕一样。每个人都在談論它。那些有買到的人被認為是幸運的。這種感覺就好像中了马票。(4D)...笑着走入銀行。在現實生活中并不是如此。

它的名稱"Kuala Krai"確實有其效果。一个有成千上萬只燕子的地方,但是別忘了,任何在天空里的燕子并不属于你的如果你没有建立好一个燕屋農場来吸引它們留下和做燕窝。Y先生已經做了一切,但是还是無濟於事。

他出席了研討會,讀了許多关于燕子的書籍,但還是想不出为什么他的燕屋農場失敗的原因。他並不是唯一的人......还有很多人都有他一樣的下场。他們只可以責怪它的位置、 时机,運氣和信仰,但是他們沒有意識其实不止是这些。

我在那裡是要教导和帮助他找出根本的原因是什麼。出於好奇我問他......"為什麼您雇佣我來幫你,因為外面有那麼多所謂的專家和师傅"? 他回答說"你寫的文章(部落格)里包含了分析在里面,这是其他的部落格没有的......就是这吸引了我"

......明白了。我只是想讓大家容易理解而已。還有一種說法"如果你没有办法詳細的解釋給他人,那就是说你不知道你在寫什麼"

(一座鬼城)

(窗口被刪除......被偷了)

(雜草無處不在)

Y先生的燕屋農場是一個被重新裝修过的單位。它是由建筑商做的。換句話說,這裡大多數的燕屋農場都是現成的。在這種情況下,建筑商必須很熟練,並且在燕屋農場有很淵博的知識,否則它如何能承擔這樣大的專案。

因此,成功的機會是很高。我敢肯定大多數的人都會这样認為。"這樣龐大的專案,一定是由經驗丰富和很有技巧的人建的"。別忘了,我們在這裡建的是燕屋農場而不是店鋪和房屋。是的,店铺和房子你需要有信譽的建筑商,但是燕屋農場你需要知道燕子行為的人。為什麼我再一次這样說?看看以下的照片。

這是一个燕子城,也就是說,它建立的唯一一個目的是"燕屋農場"它的整个大楼和它的設計應容納燕子所需要的东西。

設計這座大樓的人應該知道燕子飛行行為的限制、 優點和缺點。這將使他創造出一個對燕子很友善的環境。

但是这个7尺寬的环绕区摧毀了整個目的。為什麼一个7尺的横梁被豎立在牆上?燕子需要最少12尺的宽来盘旋。這并不是一个普通的商店,我们需要改造很多它的結構,才可以轉換成一個燕屋農場。這是一个燕子城。它是专为燕屋農場而设计的,為什麼它是这样被建立的?我想大家都已經找到了答案。

如果這是一个燕屋農場,那个横梁不應該在那里。它真的打到我的頭,這個人是否知道他正在設計什么?好吧,我不想去数尽那個人的燕農業技能。你自己判斷吧。

其次,第二入口孔從最左边24尺下降右边到1樓,有极度的90度轉彎,小燕子不可能转这个弯。除非环绕区的寬度是超過12尺(至少),但是你可以看到它只是7尺。所以這個問題出現在這裡。

從觀察我知道為什么這個燕屋農場是这样建造的。因为那狭窄7尺的环绕区,第1个入口洞和第二个入口洞之間的距離是非常的接近,因此光线可以很容易滲透到作窝區。為了避免這个建筑商沒有办法只好選擇较小的第二入口洞以便可以減少光線。小的第二个入口洞对燕屋農場是不好的。他是創造了一片混亂,同時也在掩蓋混亂。他到底知不知道嗎?你說呢?當然他不知道,否則他也不會創造7尺的环绕区。

所以它根本没有解決任何問題。问题是"為什麼一开始就制造一團糟呢?

為了減少光線,他進一步的把所有的环绕区、 天花板、 等等都油上黑漆。就是這样谋杀了燕屋農場。通常,人們總是問我是否有必要把燕屋農場油上黑漆?我的答案是""

因為燕屋農場本身的設計已經減少了光线的密度,这就是说我們在建設燕屋農場之前已經知道我們想要的正确黑暗程度,由它的分區和入口洞的大小。如果需要黑漆,往往是油在环绕区而不是作窝区的地方。

如果燕屋農場被建立了之后才把整個燕屋農場的內部油上黑漆这就顯示这个人沒有預期或瞭解光线的密度。對他来说只是一个猜謎遊戲。"先建了,如果太亮再油上黑漆"。建設一個好的燕屋農場不應該是這樣的。

因為這種做法現在它已成為一種常態,所有的燕屋農場必須都油上黑漆。這是非常誤導的。而且似乎很多师傅们仍然鼓勵人們這樣做。

高音喇叭的安排是完全失敗的。一行10个木板只有2个高音喇叭。牆邊的高音喇叭是最重要的。這些都是幼燕子做燕窝的地方。為什麼在這裡沒有高音喇叭呢?為了節省開支嗎?

可能他受到了更多誤導技術的影响,就是把高音喇叭安裝在中間,很多人一直都在这么做。燕子是圈型飞翔的,如果燕子要停下來,肯定掛在兩邊,左边和右边,而不是在中間。

現在你可以清楚地看到對燕子飞翔习惯認識的重要性。如果你不明白它們如何飛,那有如何能創造一種对燕子有益的環境呢?

在两个最端的墙壁有8个排氣孔。太多空氣的流通。有時我在想,这是排氣孔比赛吗。看那一个燕屋農場有越多的排气孔就越好。大多數的人都以为排氣孔的目的是用来把燕屋農場冷却下來。如果排氣孔可以有效地把燕屋農場降溫,那么我們為什麼需要雙層磚,雙层屋顶等等呢?只需建立一個單層砖的燕屋農場,尽量的放更多的排氣孔。也許每21个排氣孔。這將節省成本和時間。事實上,最失敗的燕屋農場通常与很多通風孔有相連。

太多的出口。燕子们可以通过樓梯和第二个入口洞进入兩個樓層。看来似乎它的設計是为了更加方便人类,而不是燕子。這是一个燕子城,他們應該在建設之前就知道這一点。它把燕子们都混淆了。光線來自超過2個地方。尚未完全開發回聲定位的小燕子会一直的在这两个出口盘旋直到累死。对燕子来说這就是出口。

這棟樓的結構不是为燕子創建或設計的。我們只可以接受,這是市場經濟,這是怎麼一回事。它被修建因為它有需求。

它有數以上百的錯誤,我寫不完。Y先生知道我的意思。我详细的解釋每一細節......,正如他所說"分析"。我想這是最好的方式來帮助人們理解吧。

現在你知道為什麼一個燕屋農場失敗嗎?它不僅僅是地點。Kuala Krai......它怎么可能失敗呢?一个有數以上萬的燕子区。正如我以前說過,我再說一次。游戏規則是......我們在這裡建造的是一个燕屋農場而不是一座建築物。但是在現實中90%的人在养燕行业是在建造一座建築物。

因為80%在這裡的燕屋農場不再運作,因此,Y先生的優勢是如果他现在改造,它現在的競爭是最低的。

所以它不只是位置那么简单。它是整套的组织,为了要一個良好的成功燕屋農場。它的設計、 音響系統、 內部環境、 香氣提高等等。

大家有好燕屋農場。

KUALA KRAI..IT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT LOCATION


The most highly  anticipated and talked about Swiftlet Eco park that was built in 2011, now has become a Swiftlet Ghost Park.

70-80% of the Swiftlet farm here is not running, means without sound or water supply. I guess most owners had given up hope. Electric fuse boxes and water meters were removed, either by the authority ( unpaid bills) or by thieves.

Windows and front shatters were removed by thieves. It is an abandoned town. I though it was  supposed to be a gated Eco Park with security, but it is not.

For those who have a Swiftlet farm here knew which Swiftlet Eco park I am referring to.  Yes, it is the Kuala Krai Eco Park which launched about 3 years plus ago.

There are about 60 units here, only a handful still operating. There are no best Swiftlet farm here. The best ones barely touch x...number of nests. The rest totally failed.

No one wants to build a failed Swiftlet farm. There is a saying " No one plans to fail but  failed to plan". But as for this  Eco Swiftlet park it seems it was planned to fail.

Why I am saying this? Well....lets see below the inside of the farm you would know what I mean.

I was in Kuala Krai last week on an invitation of Mr. Y to salvage his Swiftlet farm. He has a unit here. It was not easy to get one when it was launched 3 years ago. It sold like hot cake. People talked about it. Those who have bought it considered lucky. The feeling was like striking number.( 4D)...laughing all the way to the bank. In reality it is not so.

The name "Kuala Krai" does has its effects. A place of million birds but don't forget whatever numbers of birds in the sky it doesn't belong to you if you failed to build a Swiftlet farm that could attract them to stay and build nests.  Mr. Y has done everything but to no avail.

He has attended seminars, has read many books but still couldn't figure out why his Swiftlet farm failed. He is not alone.....there are many who shared the same faith as him. They could blame it on the location, on the timing and on luck and faith, but they didn't realize it is more that.

I was there to teach and help him to find out what are the underlying causes. Out of curiosity I asked him ..."why did you engage me to help you as there are so many so called experts and Sifus out there? He replied " you included citation in your writes ( blog) where others don't...that really impressed me".

Oh.....I see. I was just  trying to make it easy for people to understand. There is a saying " If you can't explain in details to others that means you are not sure what you are writing".


  (a Ghost town)




 ( Window removed ...stolen)

 ( Grass and weed are everywhere)



Mr.Y's Swiftlet farm is a pre-renovated unit. It was done by the developer. In other words most of the farms here are ready made. In such cases, the developer must be skillful and has vast knowledge in Swiftlet farming otherwise how could it undertake a huge project like this.

 Thus the chances of success is high. I am sure most would think the same. "Such a huge project must be by experience and skillful people". Don't forget we are here to build Swiftlet farm not Shop lots or houses. Yes, shop lots and houses you need reputable developers but Swiftlet farm you need people who knows the behavior of birds. Why I am saying this again?  See below picture.



This is a Swiftlet Eco park, which means, it is built for one purpose only " Swiftlet farming" the building and its design should accommodate what Swiftlets want.

The person who designed this building should know the limitations, advantages and disadvantages as well as Swiftlet flying behavior. This would enable him to create an environment that is friendly to Swiftlet.

But the 7 feet wide roving defeat the whole purpose. Why a beam is erected 7ft from the wall? Birds need a minimum of 12 ft to have a smooth manuvering. This not a normal random Shop lots where we have to improvise its structure if we were to convert it into a Swiftlet farm. This is a Swiftlet Eco park. It is specially built for Swiftlet farming, why it is built this way? I think you all already have the answer..

The beam shouldn't be there if this is to be a Swiftlet farm. This really hit my head, does this person know what he was designing? Well I am not going to eleborate on that person Swiftlet farming skill. You judge it yourself.

Secondly the entrance hole from far left with a  fall of 24 ft right to the 1st floor with a sharp 90 degree turn would be impossible for young birds to negotiate that turn. Unless the width of the roving is more than 12 ft ( minimum) , but as you could see it is only 7 ft. So the problem arise here.





From the observation  I knew why this farm was made this way. Because of the narrow roving of 7ft, the distance between  the 1st entrance hole and the 2st entrance is very close therefore light could easily penetrates into the nesting area. To avoid this the builder has no choice but to opt for a small 2nd entrance hole so as to reduce the light. Small 2nd entrance hole is not good for Swiftlet farm. He is creating a mess and covering up the mess at the same time. I wonder did he know that? What say you? Definitely he didn't know otherwise he wouldn't have created a 7 ft roving.

So it doesn't solve anything. The catch is " Why want to create a mess at the first place?

To reduce  the light further he painted all roving, ceiling,etc black. This really kills the farm. Often people always ask me is it necessary to paint the farm black? My answer is " NO".

Because the farm's design itself has already reduced the light density, which means we already know the exact darkness we wanted with the partitioning and the sizes of the entrance holes prior to building the farm. If black paint is needed, often it is painted at the roving not the nesting areas.

If after the farm had been built then only the whole internal is painted black it shows the person who designed this farm did not anticipated or know the out come of the light density. To him it is more of a guessing game. "Build first if it  is too bright then paint black". Building a good Swiftlet farm shouldn't be like this.

Because of  this practice now it has been a norm that all Swiftlet farms must paint black. It is very misleading. And it seems many Sifus still encourage people to do the same.










The Tweeters formation is totally fail. Only 2 tweeters on a roll of 10 planks. Tweeters at the edge of the wall are most important . These are the places where young birds build their nests. Why no tweeters here? To save cost? 

Probably he has been influenced by the technique of having more tweeters installed at the middle of the farm which has been misleading many people. Birds fly in a circular motion , if  birds were have to stop and hang definitely at both side, left and right not at the middle.



Now you could clearly see the importance of understanding of birds flying pattern. If you don't understand how they fly how could you create an environment that are friendly to their flying patterns?


8 Vent Holes on both end of each wall. Too much movement of air. Sometimes I wonder, is it a Vent hole competition. See whose farms have the most the more the better. Most have perceived the purpose of  Vent hole is to cool down the farm. If Vent hole could cool down the farm effectively then why we need double layered bricks wall, double roofing,etc? Just build a single layered wall Swiftlet farm and put as many Vent holes as possible. Perhaps every 2 inches 1 Vent hole. This would save cost and time. In fact most failed farm are associated with plenty of Vent holes.










Too many exit. The birds could access both floors by the staircase and the second entrance hole. It  seemed it was designed more for the convenience of people rather than birds. This is an Eco Park they should have known this prior to building. It confused the birds. Light ray came from more than 2 areas. Young birds that are yet to fully develop the echolocation sound would circle both exit until they tire and drop dead. To them these might be the exit.

Structural this building is not created or designed for birds. We just have to accept it this is market economy, this is how it works. It was built because there was a demand.

There are hundred of mistakes here which I can't finish writing. Mr. Y knows what I mean. I explained every each with detail...as he had said "citation". I guess this is the best way to help people to understand.

Now you know why a Swiftlet farm fails? It is more than just location. Kuala Krai...how could it fails? A land with millions birds. As I have said before and I will say it again. The rule of the thumb is...We are here to build a Successful Swiftlet farm not a building. But in reality 90% of the people in Swiftlet farming is building a building.

Since 80% of the farm here is no longer running therefore it is to M.Y advantage if he revamps it now as competition is at its lowest.

So it is not just about location. It is all in a package in order to have a good successful farm. The design, sound system, internal enviroment, Aroma enenhancement etc.

Good Swiftlet farming all.
