I was happy with this until I discovered it gone this morning. Raccoons seemed to have chewed through it and carried it off, leaving two little green pieces attached to the wires I had holding it. I had assumed there was wire under the green coating, but maybe not. The old fashioned wire baskets seem to last longer.
These little suet cages are perfectly made. I buy the suet cakes and they can be loaded straight into the feeder without ever touching them..... which is doubly great because it keeps my hands clean and also because I use the hot pepper ones that keep the squirrels away. It fastens easily and very securely and the hanging chain is plenty long or you can loop it around if you want to make it shorter. The price can't be beat because you can't tear them up so they will last a very long time.
paired with the happy hen treats square, it provided hours of pecking fun!
I have owned about 6-7 of these in past 2 years- don't know how long they can last- At some point I forget to bring in and raccoons carry off containers. Not baskets fault!!
What can I say? I have not tasted them myself. Dasuquin At least FedEx gets them to us now.
I bought these because I kept being sent the wrong feeder station and I had cakes. With 1 I use as the suet cake for the birds. And with my dogs fur. Since soo much of the German Shepherd. I've put the hair in another feeder and let it hang. The birds now have more to help them make their nest. #chewyteamrated
The suet cake grill is top grade! BUT - it desperately NEEDS a better more efficient closure AND HANGER! The first day - a squirrel - AKA ' a tree rat ' knocked it off its teeny hook and had the suet basket WIDE open -- and the RED HOT ( HA! ) anti-squirrel suet cake GONE!
These feeders are the cheapest and most flexible in use. If you have any squirrels or raccoons, you may want to wind the chain around the opening to discourage the mammals.
We love these. Our first one lasted 5-6 years. We just got a new one. We always have birds coming up feed with these.
