AF Will Require Some Salts In Their Diet !!!!

Birdhouses that are constructed closed to the sea will have a slight advantages as compared to those that are located deep in the interior.

This newest information popped out during my meal with a Vet from Sibu, Sarawak.

According to my Vet blog reader, AF do need to take a small amount of salt water on a daily basis to strengthen their body system.

As such they will fly miles away just for that purposes.

Since they need to make this trip on a regular basis, those BHs which are closed, but not too closed, will have a higher advantages.

The idea is to locate your BH about 1 kilometer inland. If the house is too near those monsoon wind will jeopardise your chances to have any new birds during the period.

I am not very sure the actual reasons why they need some salt in their body system but if possible someone can help me to clear this.

Hope the above information are well received and those who have different opinion please make your comments below and let have some discussion on the matter.

My main objective to continue writing this blog on swiftlet farming is to expose everything that are relevant to those who wanted to get involve with the business.

I strongly believed that the only way to minimise failure is to get as much knowledge as possible before you invest in it.

If you feel that the lesson learned deserved an encouragement you can contribute a some donation to this account: Yayasan Kebajikan Nah Sabah, 100930010038410 at Allied Bank, Malaysia.

I have came across articles relating to birds require some salts in their diet, one of the main purpose of taking salts is to assist them in their body detoxification process, whereby, toxic are mostly acquired from their regular diet. Perhaps some insects that the swiftlet feeds on might be containing a degree of toxic such as fumic acid.
