A New Word "Translocation" Is Now Added To Swiftlet Industries Dictionary!!!

The new word that I recently learned during November 21st, 2009 Sabah Swiftlet House & Bird's Nest Industry Association (SWIFIN) Seminar was "Translocation".

(Note: I am still learning new things every day)

A very interesting word and it was indeed a very new way of populating your new BH.

To those who missed the opportunity to attend the Seminar let me give you the real stories on this "TRANSLOCATION".

In Sabah there are many caves with lots of AF.

The word Translocation was meant for the process of uprooting those young birds from their cave habitats to BH habitats.

The method of operation, which was tested and very successful, was to capture those young birds at about 43 days old and migrate them into your BH.

Remember once hatched from their eggs they will need around 45 days to be able to fly and find food for themselves.

They will stop eating when they reached the age of 43 days. They need to reduce their weight and start testing their wings for their maiden flight.

If you can relocate them from those cave to your BH, these young birds will get used to the new environment and there is a strong chances that they will come back to stay in your BH.

The process is called Translocation and proven to be pretty successful, according to Dr. Larentiuos Ambu of Sabah Wildlife Department.

If you do not have those natural caves nearby then you need to figure out how to simulate the same way of this Translocation.

The best is to start incubating those eggs using incubators and feed the young chicks by hand. The moment they reached 43 days move them to your BH.

Another crazy idea of mine is to use those young chicks from your successful BH. If you owned more then one then you might want to use the most successful to become the feedstock to your new BH.

For those in Sabah, I was given the impression that these Translocation service will be made available (subject to final confirmation) to SWIFIN members. If I am a Sabahan I will firstly be SWIFIN member and make full use of this special offer.

A very interesting new concept and we should never used the word "That will not work" or "Crazy Ideas" or "Mana boleh?".

Open your mind set and try every possible ways to populate your BH. That is how my mind is and I want you to do the same.
