Swiftlet Farming Seminar Tang Dynasty Hotel !!!

Swiftlet Farming Seminar Tang Dynasty Hotel !!!
Come and start your year 2018 with Pak Harry. By attending his seminar you will be adequately prepared to face the challenge to manage your BH. Those who are new will be able to learn about how to get their BH well located and designed. You will learn how to pull more birds into your BH in a very short period of time. You will have lots of ammunitions to fight with your neighbors. You will learn how to prepare those BH aromas. You will also be able to visit a BH with lots of nests. Set the two days for your to fly home with lots of knowledge. The one and only one who will share his invention with others.

How To Capitalise On Those Serinti Population !!!

If your BH areas or perhaps your piece of land that you planned to build a BH are with many Serinti Birds, how can you use them?

Remember Serinti is a closed relative of swiftlet but they make their nests by using those pine trees leaves or those tree moss "lumut" that have very little commercial value.

They are plentiful in many areas, especially areas that are plenty of food (insect) but no Swiftlet in the air.

Since Serinti have little problem in building their nest anywhere that are possible they thrive much faster.

How can you benefit from them?

The best recommendation is to construct a place for them to stay.

In Indonesia, there is this rice barn that the Indonesian called "Lumbung Padi". These barn are for storage of raw padi (with those pod covering).

The barns are usually big enough to store those harvested padi. The common size is about 2-4 metres wide, 4-5 meters high. The building will be as high as 2-3 meters from the ground (to avoid flood water).

They uses four pillars made of wood. The side walls are made of bamboo skin. The roof are usually made from the dried padi stocks (jerami)covered with bamboo skins layer.

It seem that these Serinti, if given a hole to enter, will use these Lumbung to build their nests.

The Indonesian will allow these birds to colonise the barn and introduce the foster parenting technique.

Per lumbung you can easily have 40 serinti nests.

Cost to build one is only rupiah 1 million only but you can buy one at 4 million rupiah.

Once the number of serinti nests are big enough you can easily generate your swiftlet. Just buy those swiftlet eggs and switch with the serinti eggs. Let the swiftlet babies be looked after by those serinti.

In this way you maximise the close relative to work for you.

Just have a look at the many Lumpung pictures that I gathered from the web.


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.
