The A.F eggs take about 30-40 days to hatch and another 30-45 days before they leave their nests. Incubation in the incubator with a temperature set at 40C at a 70% humidity. After the A.F eggs hatched the chicks are left in the incubator for 2-3 days before they are transferred. This is mostly done in areas where the A.Fuciphagus population is low and the Sriti population is high.
Identifying eggs that have embryo
This done in a dark room, by placing a flash light underneath the egg, you will be able to identify it. Those eggs with embryo will be sold to Swiftlet farms or send to incubator for incubation.

They have been doing this for many years and this is how they increase their bird’s population. In
The Sriti are dark deep blue in color. The colors of their eyes are brown and there are very small in size. They are in colonies like A.F and hunt in the same area with A.F. To differentiate them is not easy, commonly identification is through their nest.
