Take Good Care Of Your Nesting Planks !!!
Take a good look at these installed nesting planks and ask yourself will those swiftlet build their nest on it?
You have to be a bit more careful when you handle those nesting planks.
What is the use of getting the factory to ensure a perfect shape and straight, dried, cut the grooves, cover them from rain, make sure no smell and so on but when it arrived at site you just chucked them on the floor without any protection?
I happened to visit a BH under revamp.
As usual the BH floors were lilted with bird shit dust as thick as two inches here and there.
Well on these shit, the newly arrived planks were laid onto.
Can you imagine what will happen when these tainted planks are installed onto the ceiling?
They will be rejected by those birds, I can assure you 100% they will not select the affected plank.
Do you know why?
It is a matter of safety to their babies. Once they sniffed the plank and smell the bird shit, they will conclude that there is another nest above the affected plank. If there is a nest directly above this spot is risky. A pile of shit from those young chicks above me will drop into my nest and kill my poor babies.
So be careful when you handle those precious nesting planks. Talk to your site supervisors and make sure they are properly stored. Please do not step on them.
