This email was send to me by a newbie who have never stop learning all those things that I have blogged:
I'm N from Hochiminh city, Vietnam. I met you 3 times with my friends and my husband ( 3 Vietnamese couple met you first time in August 2009).
I have an one year operating BH and i follow most of your ideas. I think you are amazing professional and smart. I admire you. I read your blog every day.
My BH sketch was advised by you, i used your zic zac LAL even though my Vietnamese sifu thought that i'm crazy. He thinks swiftlets can not find the way down with that LAL but he was wrong.
I protected my decision because i definitely believe you. You're right. It worked very well. My birds stay most of 4 floors, except 3th floor quite little.
I added 4 VIP room ( one in 4th floor, 2 in two sides of 3th floor and 1 in second floor) but only the one in 4th floor works well even though it's hottest because it's in highest floor.
I don't know the reason why. Maybe because the good VIP room i opened door tin the middle, the rests i opened in left or right.
What's about your opinion?
Firstly, last year i followed my Vietnamese sifu and used his plank ( that combined by wood and plastic).
I install also many fake nests. At the begining, it's OK, There were about 40 couples stay in first 5months.
But i recognized that they just made in fake nests. They couldn't make real nest because of slippery planks.
My birds made a little and fly away. I had to decide to change all my planks by wood plank and stones.
I finished my works in the end of May.
After 4 months, now my BH is potential. There were about 20 real nests and 40 fake nests last month when i inspected. the best location are VIProom in 4th floor, first floor and second floor ( outside VIP room) .
I'm very happy except some problems like some leaks or not good humidifier system. But yesterday i saw 2 snake skin in my BH. It means there are at least 2 snakes in my BH.
What i have to do now Harry? Can you give me some advices? I wait for your opinion.
I rememberred when she came with her husbands and four others. They engaged me for a one say session to learn in details about swiftlet farming.
The went back and started on their own and she seems to be very happy with what happened now.
How ever there are still many unknown things that happened that she don't know what to do.
I quickly replied to her so that it will comfort her with those problems in hand.
My gentle reply to her:
