4Th December Swiftlet Farming Seminar !!!
It was really a very interesting day so much so we finished the talk at 6:30pm.
I felt very honored when all the participants says something good before they say goodbye.
Some came because they wanted to start their dream bird house, some came is as a second time, some came because of the insect Barn, some came because they were half way completing their BH under construction.
You can see the glow in their eyes after absorbing those information which they have never thought or heard before.
Just read these comments from a few of the participants:
"Pak Harry I need to scrap my initial drawing and redraw all over again. Your information has been very very useful. I am so lucky to have attended this Seminar"
"Pak Harry, my dad have started his three stories BH. Now already 2 floors. I have a great feeling that the BH need to be torn down. So many mistakes and I need to get you over to Vietnam to advise how to salvage the current structures."
"Pak Harry, I am new in this swiftlet farming business and I am so great full that I learned so much from your Seminar. So much info and there no way I can get them from anybody else."
"Pak Harry, you are amazing. How the hell do you know so much about those swiftlet?"
Just imagine these participants learn things that they have never heard before as follows:
Swiftlet love to sing to each other?
What about the reasons why you find lots of feathers on the floor when they started mating?
What about why those nests will have birds feathers on them?
How about the effect of sound volumes in your BH?
Then there was this story about why you should choose the evening flight path as the entrance door direction?
We have some interesting laugh about how a person knows that the marvelous cloud is a male voice?
Before the female birds allows the male to copulate, the nest must be at least ready to receive her eggs?
Those birds when they make love they do everywhere. In the house and also in the air?
If you can make the bird says I do as your tenant, you are on the right track.
Never count the nest before there is an egg in it?
Can you use dead baby birds as your BH aroma?
What are the main reasons swiftlet have a flying path?
How many grams do they eat a day?
Why and how frequent should you do those forced harvest?
It is true that in Sabah you can get 5 young birds every year at RM 5 each?
You can actually push those birds to build their nests where you wanted them to?
Swiftlet is something like your young kid who refuse to go to school unless you give in to what they wanted?
On the 43rd day of their life, swiftlet will stop eating, why?
It is better to ensure that your entrance hole to face the East, why?
What can be the reasons why there are three eggs in a nest, normally only two?
How you wet the floor but not flooding it?
What sound should be used to for those noisy tweeters?
How to use those long range bazookas effectively?
Well there are many more new things that these participants learned from the seminar and I am very glad to have stand in front for almost 9 hours until my two legs cramped.
Reached home at about 9pm and I went to bed at 9:30pm.
What a day. So you think it is easy to be a speaker?
