FAQ

What is suet?

Suet is animal fat. It is the most concentrated source of energy you can offer wild birds. C&S Suet is made with only the highest quality processed beef kidney fat while special processes remove impurities that can cause low melting points and spoilage problems. C&S Treats are a poured product and will become soft and pliable at around 100 degrees (F). C&S Delights are refined even further and pressed to produce a “No Melt” suet that can be fed during the hottest temperatures. C&S Suet is reasonably priced and eliminates the mess of home production.

Why do birds eat suet?

Suet is one of the top three foods to feed wild birds. Birds have high metabolic rates, so it is not unusual for birds to consume 1/4 to 1/3 their body weight worth of food a day! Offering suet, mixed with the highest quality grains, nuts, fruits, and flavored pellets provides a high caloric energy source. C&S Suet is one of the first foods birds will offer their young.

When do birds eat?

Birds seek out food most actively early in the morning and again just before nightfall. This gives them the energy burst they need to make it through spring nesting, breeding and chilly winter nights. The wide variety and product quality make C&S Bird Suet an extremely desirable food source for our many feathered friends in all seasons.

How do I feed suet?

Wild Bird Suet is traditionally fed in vinyl-coated wire cages. They are inexpensive and durable. Wire dimensions vary depending on how starling or squirrel resistant you want your feeder to be. The cages, or baskets, hold from one to several C&S Suet Cakes or Bricks. The cages may be hung from branches, tree trunks, or hooks. There are also several designs available combining wire with wood or plastic.

When do I feed suet?

ALL YEAR ROUND!!! In the past, people fed suet only in the fall and winter, due to poor quality and misconceptions of feeding wild birds. Winter is a good time for the beginner to start feeding because most trees are bare of foliage making the birds very visible. You are also more apt to see birds in flocks in the winter time. The growth and popularity of summer bird feeding was to be expected. You will have constant activity on your feeders as they flit back and forth for quick snacks during their busy day. C&S’s “No Melt” Suets make it easy to attract insect eating birds to your yard in warm weather. Year round feeding allows you to observe and enjoy wild birds when they are the most active and colorful.

What birds eat suet?

If you have never fed C&S Suet, you have missed some great neighbors. Common birds that eat suet are downy, hairy, red-bellied, and pileated woodpeckers. Chickadees, northern flickers, nuthatches, and starlings are also avid suet eaters. By adding C&S Suet to your wild bird’s menu, you will also attract wrens, warblers, thrushes, brown creepers, brown thrashers, and blue jays. You can also attract orioles, pine siskins, titmice, and the ever popular bluebird. No feeding station would be complete without C&S suet baskets!

What flavors do I feed?

C&S Suet flavors are available in treats and “No Melt” delights. Start with a suet that is most appealing to you. Ingredients vary from peanuts to papaya, hot pepper to almond, berry to cherry, and raisin to insect. Special blends are available including Oriole, Bluebird and Woodpecker.

Do you use artificial coloring and/or milk in your products?

No. We are pleased to announce the removal of all artificial coloring and the removal of milk (used as a binder) from all of our products. We have made sure that the wild bird acceptance is the same, if not better, without the artificial coloring and milk as a binder. We tested a variety of natural flavorings that would enhance the bird acceptance. The testing has been very successful. As the various label inventories are depleted, we will begin using new labels with the artificial coloring and milk removed from the ingredient list.

What is a Snak™ Cake?

C&S Snak™ Cakes are produced with natural adhesive binders holding different mixes together in a cake form. These cakes vary in size from 6 ounces to 6.5 pounds.

Why would I use a Snak™ Cake?

Snak™ Cakes create less mess and waste than many conventional seed mixes. Snak™ Cakes may allow you to feed in places that you wouldn’t normally place seed feeders. You’ll also find that Snak™ Cake feeders attract a different type of bird than conventional bird feeders.

What about squirrels?

Squirrels are the bane of most birders. However, at C&S, we prefer to “FEED ‘EM, DON’T FIGHT ‘EM.” This is why we have developed a full line “Squirrelog” products and feeders. Not only do squirrels provide hours of entertainment, it is also to necessary to divert them away from bird suets and feeders because they can cause damage and steal needed food from wild birds. This is why we developed our line of Sweet Corn Squirrelogs—to have the best of both worlds.

    Designed and works as described. I had a little trouble getting the latch to stick but it did after I applied a bit of force. I bought two and they have been put up near other feeding areas in two trees. So far I have only seen one bird eating the suet, but maybe the birds here aren't too bright.

    Bird Treats

    I put suet feeders up in the Fall and Winter. The extra fat and protein helps keep the wild birds healthy when some food sources become scarce. Highly recommend.

    My Favorite Type

    By on

    I love this type of suet cake holder. It is so much easier to load than the type that loads from the narrow side. I never have to touch the suet at all.

    Nice little upgrade for easier use

    By on

    This one is easier to fill than the standard basic suet cage. Worth the minimal upgrade expense.

    awesome until someone steals it

    By on

    I loved this feeder. I put it outside my window so the cats could watch while in their hammocks. I don’t care that the squirrels get at it because I mean come on there are cute. I went to go refill it as I just got my refills from chewy and it’s missing. I really don’t know why someone would enter my backyard and take it (I found my gate open too). I guess they don’t like the sound of birds. Now I have 5 refills and no basket anymore! Let’s just say the birds and the cats are not amused. Great product keep away from bird hating people

    Easy as advertised

    By on

    Heavy duty wire and and a fairly easy opening make this a winner for any suet block. Wires are a bit thicker than expected, which is good, as I know it'll stand up for years. Pleased with this purchase.

    Securing the cage

    By on

    I recently bought 3 feeders and suet cakes. The next morning after installing them 6-7 ft above ground I found two the feeders completely empty, although the feeders were still closed, and one on the ground. The third feeder had completely disappeared. Was it squirrels, deer or some other critter? I will buy more suet and secure the feeder at a higher level with wire.
