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.

    Suet cage feeder

    By Athens on Jan 14, 2022

    Not as much action here as at the seed feeder. It's hanging on a branch. A squirrel has discovered it and puts on an acrobatic show trying to get at the cake. If the openings were smaller squirrels might not have access.

    Great quality and very sturdy

    By Dani on Aug 30, 2021

    I previously did not have a bird feeder in my garden until it was suggested, and this is the perfect cage for the suet cake. The cage is steel and sturdy with clasp opening\closing. It can be hung in many ways, I attached it to a tree. The chain from the cage is quite long with a hook attached at the end. I wrapped the chain around a branch and placed the hook in a link of the chain to secure it and it is perfect, can still maneuver as the birds feed and is secure. Would definitely recommend this! Cash back was received for this item as I participated in a cash back program.

    Easy Open Cage

    By Approved on May 19, 2021

    I really like how this opens! It is very easy to place the suet in the feeder without touching suet. Sometimes it can be gross and oily. The basket seems pretty resilient to squirrels too. The mockingbirds and thrashers love it!

    Squirrel friendly

    By Imiril on Jul 7, 2021

    The squirrels stole it after 2 days. Never did find it. I'm going to buy a squirrel proof suet feeder (you should too).

    It’s pretty basic

    By Krissy on Jan 9, 2021

    It hangs crooked which annoys me. But it’s cheap and would work for smaller birds, and squirrels. I have a better one with wood and two suet holders - one on each side that I really like so much better. i would recommend spending more for that type, especially if you want to draw larger woodpeckers like the red-bellied. They need the wood to balance with their tails. The two suet holders allow you to put the almost - gone suet blocks into one side and always have plenty of suet at least on one side. With this one you have to wait til the suet is totally gone - and the birds will find an empty feeder at times.

    Easy to fill suet feeder

    By Sally on Jan 17, 2021

    This feeder is so easy to fill. Unlike most suet feeders, one side opens and you can drop the suet directly into the feeder from the packaging. With top loading suet feeders, you have to take the suet completely from the packaging to drop it in a slot. This EZ fill basket is very convenient.
