What To Upgrade At Carey Island BH Number 1 ???
While preparing the list of items to installed inside Carey Island BH number 1, I verbally told the owner on what is lacking in his BH.
1) The BH floors are not properly wet.
What he needed are those mist pumping system that will continuously wet the BH floors using a timer.
Each floor should be provided with one set of mist pump with at least 15 mist nozzles.
The water supply plus pressure head must be adequate to activate the pumps.
Initially the mist must be activated about four times a day or every 6 hours with about 10-15 minutes of operation.
Every time the BH is inspected the caretaker should look at the condition of the floor if it is still too dry or too wet.
If it is still dry he need to increase the timing by increasing the number of tooth on those timers.
If it is too wet he need to reduce the timing for the pumps.
So this BH needed two sets of mist pump system.
2) The number of chicken coop humidifiers have to be increase to a minimum of four new one for each floor.
Every unit must be coupled to an auto activator called the Hygrostat.
This gadget will be able to detect the set humidity and activate the humidifier once it reaches a set value.
If the humidity is set at 85%RH it will activate the current flow at 82%RH and when the humidifiers starts to blow those water droplets the humidity will start to increase.
The gadget will stop the current flow to those humidifiers once it sense that the RH touches 88%RH.
The Hygrostat will help to maintain the BH humidity to be within 83%-88%RH.
Beside 8 units of humidifiers, 4 hugrostats is required to activate the humdifiers.
3) The external sound tweeters inside this BH need some kind of total installation.
The number of external sound at the main LMB, along the walls, doors and the nesting rooms need to be properly installed.
I did make an estimate of about 44 pieces of AG 35 tweeters.
To install them I need to bring along a total of 4 rolls of 100 meters copper cables.
4) The BH entrance area is in need of a hexagonal tweeter.
The best is to install the hexagonal tweeter at the wall just above the LMB hole.
This hexagonal cable need to be connected to those tweeters at the LMB hole.
So I need to add one hexagonal tweeter plus a bracket and a pole for this installation.
5) The VIP rooms walls need to be blackened.
Two pails of black odorless paint will be used to pain the walls black.
The walls shall be properly selected and curtain part of these walls need not be painted.
Beside 2 pails of black paint a roller brush and a pole is necessary.
6) The BH need some number of fake nests to be installed.
Main function of these fake nests is to help those young couples to quickly built their nests.
Most young couples takes a longer period of time to complete their nests.
If these fake nests are installed, maybe about 200 pieces and sprayed with SP aroma, those swiftlet will be crazy with this gadget.
I am very very sure that the number of new nests will jump immediately after the installation.
So I need to prepare 200 fake nests and 2 canisters of SP for this upgrading operation.
7) The use of plastic chain will be useful to minimize odd shape raw nests.
Currently I was told that the number of odd shape nests is closed to 90% while those that are full 180* is about 10%.
The time have come to reverse the percentage.
The best method is to harvest all those nests and install a plastic chain.
Those wild birds once they returned to start a new nest will move to the old site.
The plastic chains installed will make it very uncomfortable for them to build at the same spot.
So I need at least 100 pieces of ready made plastic chain tied to steel band.
