I was in A.Setar few days ago. It is very convenience now that FireFly flies direct there. I usually fly to
I was invited there to revive a Stand alone farm which was located in a greenery area that has plentiful of food for swiftlets. It was a double storey farm. Sadly it was not done properly. The consultant of the farm never takes any consideration of the necessary basic internal
environment when he designed the farm. I guess it more for money making rather than the objective of making a good and successful farm or perhaps lack of skill and knowledge? For sure nobody knows.
The farm has been operated for 1 yr and it has only 5 nests. Some of them half built and left. How could it be? It was sad to see a farm in good location with poor result.
The basic requirements were never met. The Rh was constantly 60% even with the all humidifiers switched on. Can you imagine that?
The temp was 32C, what if on a hot day?
The inter hole was so small which only good for a person to access. The placement was wrong. I can easily pin point many mistakes. How could someone design a farm like this. The external and internal sound were bad too.
Best of all the farm has 4 entrace holes of all sizes on the Dk. I asked the owner didn't you ask the consultant why needed so many entrace holes? Reply was easy for birds to access from all directions. I replied then you should have chosen an open roof.
The size of the roving is the same size of my house toilet. I think mine is bigger. That is not all there is a slap on the inside middle of the Dk making another hole. I asked the owner didn't the consultant explain the purpose of this slap? He replied for reducing the light. Oh I see...
If the light is the problem then why open so many entrace holes? You see now all these contradict with the consultant's answer.
The flying path was never considered when designing the farm. I explained to the owner the reason behind the high tem and Rh, etc. It was very hard to swallow when the owner understand how things worked and discovered all these mistakes. I told the owner just go and grab any Swiftlets book in the market it will tell you that the Rh has to be 75-85% and Temp has to be around 27-30C. The farm can't even achieve these basic requirements standard how one expect to have a successful farm. The owner said, whenever I ask him he will tell me” don’t worries let me take care of it".
Yet this consultant is no a small timer there, quite famous there claimed by the owner.
Now the farm has to be revamped in order to have good result. It was lucky to have 5 nests if it located in a poor zone I think to have 1 nest is a problem.
Everything has been explained to the owner and now it is time for revamp.
I hope some of you out there won't face this similar situation. It is not easy to swallow. Money had been paid for works of poor designed building.

前几天我在AlorSetar前。现在FireFly直接飞行那裡，它是非常方便的。如果我參觀 Kedah的農場, 我通常飛到Penang，然后我的讀者將载我到那裡。
我被邀請到那边復興位于綠葉區域有豐富燕子的食物的單獨燕屋農場。 它是一個雙層 樓燕屋農場。很可惜它未適當地做。當他設計燕屋農場时, 燕屋農場的顧問從未考慮 所有必要的基本屋內環境。我猜測或許它是为了钱而做更不是为了做好和成功的燕屋農場或缺乏技巧和知識？ 肯定沒人知道。燕屋農場被管理1年，並且它只有5巢。 有些造了一半和離開。 怎麼可能？ 可悲的是看到一個在好地點的燕屋農場有如此 恶劣的結果。 基本的要求曾未符合。虽然开了所有潤濕器Rh經常还是60%。 您能否想像那？温度还是32C，那在熱天呢？相互孔是很小的只有人可以进出的。 安置是錯誤的。 我可以容易地點住許多差錯。 怎麼可能某人設計象這样的一個燕屋農場。 外部和內部聲音也是壞的。最好笑的是燕屋農場有4個一样大小 在Dk的入口。 我問屋主是否有問过顧問為什麼要有許多入口？ 答案是容易让燕子從所有方向进入。 我回復了您應該選擇了一個開放屋頂。旋转的大小是好象我的洗手間的相同大小。 我認為我的是更大的。 那不是全部, 那裡还有另一個入口是做在Dk裡面的中部。 我問屋主是否有問过顧問為什麼要有這個入口的目的？ 他说為減少光线。 噢我看見… 如果光线是個問題為什麼还開放許多入口呢？ 您現在看見所有這些抗辯與顧問的 答復是有差别的。 當設計燕屋農場时，飛行道路未曾被考慮。 我解释了给屋主對所有高温度和Rh之後的原因等等。屋主是非常难瞭解所有的事当他發現了所有這些差錯。 我告诉了屋主在市場上买一些有关燕屋的書它將告诉您所有 的燕屋農場 Rh必須是75-85%，並且温度必須是在27-30C附近。 如果一個燕屋 農場无法達到這些基本的標準要求, 一個人怎麼可以期望有一個成功的燕屋農場。 所有說，每當他問顧問問題, 顧問將告訴他 “不憂慮讓我会照料"。 這位顧問 在那裡不是一个无名小卒，屋主說在那裡是相當著名的。為了有好的結果现在燕屋農場必須被修補。幸運的是它还有5个窝， 如果是在1個不好的區域我認為有1个窝 还是成問題。 對屋主解釋了一切，並且現在是修補时间。 我希望你們不会面對這 個相似的情況。是不容易吞下的。付了钱但是的到如此恶劣的大廈設計。 如果您有這樣問題的告诉我： 012-3173811 祝您好运!
