The Plastic Chain: How To Reduce Those 90* Corner Nests !!!



A few days ago wrote about this new idea on how to prevent those birds from using 90* corners at :

http://swiftletfarming.blogspot.com/2015/06/plastic-chain-cheapest-method-to-reduce.html

Immediately after writing about this new idea I received a message saying that this idea was not new.

It started some years ago (2009) by someone.

Another message came from someone who provided some pictures taken from a research paper.

How interesting.

Now everybody claimed that this plastic hanging ideas is theirs.

Obviously it is not mine but I think it is a beautiful idea and simple to use.

I have started to install some at Belara BH and I hope I can deploy more next week.

Main idea is to discourage those old couples from using the same spots once their babies have flew out.

You allow new couples to use those 90* corners but not for long.  Once they have laid their first egg you know they will come back cycle after cycle to breed.

Once they have occupied the corner (please take away those corner covers), allow them to breed there for at least one time.

Once that is over and their babies took off you then hang this plastic chain.

You may want to use those steel band tied to a screw.

Let is hang and dangle so that when the same couple return they will be pissed off or disturb with the chain hanging on the same spot.

They will usually move to the side of the chain.

When this happened the next nest they erect will be 180* shape.

If you apply this technique you will be able to reduce you corner nests to the minimum in no time.

Best of luck to you all and thank you to the person who invented this idea.

Marvelous  !!!!!
