Why Should They Blame Those Spirits !!!!
I confronted a number of people who have this habits, when their BH failed, of pointing their fingers to others except themselves.
They did not realised that when they point one finger the other four are towards them.
One good example was this guy whose BH only managed to have one nest after in operation for 2 years. According to him there is this "Penunggu" or "Spirit" or "Makluk Halus" or "Satan" or "anything you can think of" who is disturbing the birds. As such they refuse to stay.
Hmm ..... I for one don't accept this lame excuse. To me the "Hantu" or "Spirit" or who ever he is, is actually the owner himself. The blame should be himself.
He failed to take adequate steps to manage his BH properly.
He knows next to nothing about swiftlets.
His decision to elect the so called Consultant was inappropriate.
His idea about having a BH is get someone to come over and do the needful and the rest leave it to God.
He operate his BH with only one sound. The sound was only played at the entrance hole.
He never knew that there is such thing like internal and external sounds.
Even if he knows he played the same sound from the beginning of time and never even thought of changing them.
He tried some new sound but since he is so cheapskate he bought a sound called "Duress" and been playing ever since.
He keep blowing those chicken coop humidifiers non stop and his BH now turns into a mushroom farm.
His BH temperature is more or less like a sauna.
His BH brightness is as clear as a football field. If you bring in Ronaldo he can easily kick the ball using his banana kick to let the ball out of the entrance hole.
He let the contractor to open all those ventilation holes so that those toxic air pollute his internal micro habitat.
He allows those bats to fly in and out.
If there are some nests, he allows those owls to make a good meal of all those young chicks.
So how not to fail?
If I am him I will start learning from all the mistakes that I have done. I will get someone who knows the ins and outs about swiftlet farming over and teach everything that one need to know.
Basically what a person really needed to be successful in swiftlet farming is "KNOWLEDGE". Knowledge about the bird that construct their nest using those saliva.
If you want to be a good swiftlet farmer you need to think like swiftlet. You must imagine that you are being hatched in a nest and you grew up in the natural environment that was chosen by your parent. Everything around you are the basic requirements for a successful BH.
Try not to think like a human but like a swiftlet !!!!
