Pictures Of Chandra Kartika Bird's Nest

This is a picture of one of our many bird's houses in Java, Indonesia.

Harvesting of the nest is carried out a few times in a year and each harvest produces approximately of 30 kilograms of nest.

Here is a picture of unprocessed bird's nest.
They are filled with dirt and feathers.These unprocessed nests are then taken to clean by soaking them in water and removing the feathers painstakingly by hand.

These nest are cleaned a number of times depending on the amount of dirt and feathers on them. Once they're done, they are formed into their original shape with a specially designed mold and fan dry for approximately 12 hours until they are crispy dry.

The clean bird's nest are then packed into a lovely box,
worthy as gifts for any occasion.
