Not needed at all: No normal healthy person needs to eat bird's nest. The amount of nutrition in a normal balanced diet (plus the added items in prenatal vitamins in case one's diet is short in anything) surpasses any tiny tiny benefit one could get from bird's nest. If the rapidly growing world population demands to eat bird's nest, the birds will become extinct. By the way, there's also no need to eat shark's fin.
