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. Find more information on our quality line of suet products.

Why do birds eat suet?

Suet is 1 of the top 3 foods to feed wild birds. Birds have high metabolic rates, so it is not unusual for birds to consume 1/4 - 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 1 of the first foods birds will offer their young. Check our wild bird feeding page for more information on how easy it is to get started.

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 1 - 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. View our complete line of Suet Feeders and Baskets.

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.

What are Nuggets?

This is a new fat based product that uses a unique formulation and production process to produce. Nuggets™ have proven to be attractive to a larger variety of wild birds than even the finest selection of quality seeds.

How do I feed Nuggets?

The Bird Nuggets line may be fed with Nugget/Peanut/Sunflower feeders using 1/3? diameter wire or platform feeders. These feeders will only attract the clinging type of bird like Nuthatches and Chickadees.

What is a Snack™ Cake?

C&S Snack Cakes are produced with natural adhesive binders holding different mixes together in a cake form. These cakes vary in size from 6 ozs to 6.5 lbs.

Why would I use a Snack Cake?

Snack Cakes create less mess and waste than many conventional seed mixes. Snack™ Cakes may allow you to feed in places that you wouldn’t normally place seed feeders. You’ll also find that Snack™ 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.

  • Squirrels hate and birds love, win win!

    By on

    I like this suet as it doesn't melt in the hot Unrelenting TX heat. The squirrels also won't eat it. Any other suet I use they crawl all over my open suet feeder and decimate it. But this hot pepper stuff they do not like at all. They just won't touch it. The birds don't care as they must not taste the heat from the pepper and they eat it as quickly and happily as any other suet. So it's a win win on my open suet cake feeder. I have another suet cake feeder that's inside of an external cage that the squirrels can't get to and that one I use the other flavors that the squirrels do like. I'm very happy I found out about the hot pepper not being liked by the squirrel as it means I don't have to I like this suet as it doesn't melt in the hot Unrelenting TX heat.

  • Muy Caliente!

    By on

    I live in a suburb of Atlanta. Within a minute or two of my putting out the hot pepper suet cakes, my patio is bombarded with birds of all kinds. Woodpeckers, cardinals, cedar waxwings, catbirds, crows, house finches, sparrows, chickadees, goldfinches and bluebirds go BANANAS for this stuff. I have counted over 35 different birds visiting my feeders and they are all GAGA for this brand of hot pepper suet. The mockingbirds fight over it! ;-) You want birds? Put this stuff out (wash your hands thoroughly after handling it and DON'T TOUCH YOUR EYES!). Tip: Put them in your freezer and take out as needed.

  • Squirrels won't touch it!

    By on

    I've learned the hard way that squirrels will go after the suet I offer the birds--all but this formulation. They don't do hot pepper! The birds are just fine with it, so this is all I buy--and it's just a matter of who offers the best price. This time it was Chewy--and I'll start my shopping with them next time, of course. BTW: I put the cakes in the freezer so they keep as long as necessary (especially helpful on the summer).

  • Keep squirrels away!!

    By on

    I got these and put them in my suet cages and watched, the birds love them and then a squirrel started to eat one, after one good bite he jumped off the suet cage and started to rub his face in the grass and then ran up a tree and continued to rub his face on the branch, he has been back but hasn't tried eating it again. Great item!!

  • Got Sqirrels & Racoons? This is the Cure!

    By on

    I've used C&S No Melt Suet for years and just thought my wild birds were little piggys. That was until I saw squirrels during the day and racoons at night eating it. My friend told me to get the hot pepper suet and that it doesn't bother the birds. Now, I have to refill the basket once a week, instead of every 2 days.

  • I guess my squirrels like heat.

    By on

    On the plus side, the birds seemed to like this. And it drew in a couple cool ones I hadn’t seen, a wren and a couple woodpeckers. However, I saw the squirrels gnawing on it when they couldn’t get to the seed in the feeder. I know it was just to spite me because my squirrels are jerks but I was hoping the heat would help drive them away.

  • Best anti-squirrel suet there is

    By on

    This is the only brand that our squirrels do not like! And Chewy currently has the best price I've seen. Highly recommended. Now if there was anti-grackle and anti-starling varieties...

  • Squirrels <3 it too

    By on

    In all fairness, I haven't found anything to deter my pesky squirrels. They eat anything and everything and nothing is ever enough for them, and in the process they've got to rob the birds of every last crumb. I initially purchased 1 and only saw a couple squirrels try it while most left it alone. Thinking it worked (eureka!), I bought 12 more. Upon opening the first package of that 12, hordes of squirrels have now descended the second this suet gets put out. There's no stopping them and they seem to love this stuff. Seems like they acclimated nicely to this second package.
