I came back quite late yesterday after meeting with a reader who wanted to engage me as an adviser for his new project. It was a 3 storey 30x 90 standalone located in Tanjung Malim.
We discussed about the plan, the time and everything that needed to make sure it would have nests in it in the shortest period of time.
While on my way back home a regular reader Mr. C from Sarawak called me. He is avid swiftlet farmer who has been following my blog since it started more than 2 years ago.
“James sorry to call you now. Hope not disturbing you”
“Oh Mr.C , how are you? Wait let me put on my hand free. I am driving now.”
“No problem James”
“Yes Mr.C what can I do for you my friend? Sing Lee ho Boh?
“Very good liow Very Ho, Your Gezillion Star and Hypnotic internal sound are marvelous. Dam good man combines with your Super Love Potion. It really surprised me. When I started playing the sound I don’t see many birds but after 2 months I went inside my farm, many white shits and from 460 nests last count 2 months ago and today it increases to 590 nests. What did you put in the sound and Love Potion? Tell me the secret lah?”
“Ha..ha..ha.ha..ha..Mr.C can no problem I can tell you the secret but you may not understand it..ha..ha..ha..the New Gezillion star in a smooth slow mover. Inside, it has some female craving sounds of ready to mate with different pitch. If use with the Hypnotic internal sound with baby craving for parent then nest grow is not a problem”
“Wah James you talk like birds already. Please talk human language lah. I am blur already.”
I laughed and laughed
Mr. C explained to me how his farm had progressed and how he had followed my instructions. He was a nice chap and a good friend. Started off as my blog reader and now a successful swiftlet farmer.
Most if not all even those internal sound that claimed to be good internal sound, if you listen carefully you could only hear 1 sound which is the baby sound nothing more that .Perhaps within sequences there would be 1 or 2 adults sound chirping loudly. Some of these sounds claimed to be the best in the market. You would be surprise 9 out of 10 failed farms I visited are using such sound. I don’t want expose the name. I think most of you know it and most of you migh be using it.
Common sense would tell you that in a successful farm which has few hundred nests no way there would be only 1 sound (baby sound). The sound environment is of mixture of adult, juvenile, female, male, baby sound.
So if you are using an internal sound that contains only 1 sound in it then it would be so unrealistic. When Swiftlets fly into your farm they feel uncomfortable because your farm is dam fake with such internal sound.
That is why so many people complaining that birds come and play and don’t stay. Everything has its reason.
Good Swiftlets Farming All!
