The current raw and process nests problem have in some way affected the activities of swiftlet farmers.
Many adopted the wait and see attitude but there are still many that have not dampened their interest.
This week received a number of call from those who are still on the high tone about swiftlet farming.
They have their own interpretation on the current scenario:
"Pak Harry, since there are lesser newly build BHs there will be more birds to share thus much easier to populate a new BH."
There is another important claim and it is something like this:
"Pak Harry since the price is low many of us are not harvesting those nests. This will allows the swiftlet to recycle their nests. When they recycle they will shorten the nest building cycle. As a result there will be more birds in the air. Some of us might even stop doing those force harvest?"
This guy who make the above comment is also right.
If we stop harvesting those birds will recycle their nests. Due to this the time the birds spend to rebuild their nest will be lesser. The birds can immediately, or 10 days after their baby flew out of their nest, start a new family.
There was one guy who wanted to revamp his shop house in N9.
I reminded him about the law stopping BH in shop houses but he seems to wish to go ahead.
There was another person from Kelantan who wanted his BH to be fixed with my recommended sound system.
"Pak Harry, my BH is ready and I would like you help to install those sound system. I remembered telling you about this about one year ago. Please let me have the price breakdown."
The thing here is that even with the current low price people are still up beat on swiftlet farming.
All of them plus ourself hope that the price will move upward to a more exciting level.
