I hadn't ordered birdseed from Chewy before, but was already placing an order and added this to my cart. I am SOOO glad I did, and now I will buy more Harvest seeds! As soon as I started using this in my bird feeders and suet cakes, I started getting so many birds it was CREEPY outside. The cats and dogs love to watch them, and suet cakes especially go fast! I make my own suet cakes by melting 1 c lard and 1 c chunky peanut butter in a large saucepan, then add that to a huge bowl with 1 c flour, 1/2 c sugar, 2 c corn meal, 1 1/2 c quaker oats and then 1/2 to 1 1/2 c of this birdseed. Pour into a large flat casserole like where you make brownies, then refrigerate until solid. Then I cut it into squares to fit suet feeders and put them in freezer bags to freeze for later. When I use this in suet cakes, the cakes are gone in HOURS. They love it! Much different from the ones without this birdseed mix. I will keep coming back for this!
I left these bags outside unopened- completely forgetting they were out there I put my dogs outside for awhile. They tore into the bags, spreading the seeds all over our back porch, looking for doggo treats I guess. I didn’t bother to sweep up the seeds. Needless to say, our backyard is now THE place to be for birds of all types and sizes. Word has spread among the tiny bird community and I’ve never- in all my years of living here- have seen SO many teeny tiny birds coming to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s constant. They sing their little bird songs. They seem happy. I also ordered the other type of bird seed from the same company/manufacturer and the dogs tore them both open so yeah I came on here to reorder both because I don’t know which one was the favorite among the birds.
my bird feeders are always busy, the wrens especially love the mealworms! I get cardinals, tufted titmice, painted buntings, finches, chickadees, even an occasional red bellied woodpecker and more. I have tried multiple mixes from this brand and the least popular in my yard was the one with fruit, not sure if the pieces were too big or my birds just dont care for it (the squirrels happily took the leftovers). the songbird mix was well received too but I started adding mealworms to it which attracted some new visitors, so I was happy to find this one with them already mixed in.
First time trying this seed with my backyard birds, they absolutely love this! Its the mixture but I feel its the mealworms that they love the most. Buying another bag for sure.
I’m fortunate to have Bluejays and Cardinals visit my bird feeders every day as well as Mourning Doves. These larger birds love this!
After reading the reviews, I thought I'd try both this and the Songbird food and they absolutely love it. Great variety for them and I'm seeing some smaller birds now too. I used to feed mostly sunflower seeds, so they are really loving the additional seeds and mealworms in this one.
Not what I expected. Mostly millet and milo ala filler, and it will do is attract those nasty House Sparrows. Disappointing.
This fulfilled every expectation. We now have more birds that we have ever had and it is so amazing how they come for this food!!
ive amassed a lot of wintering birds here in the Midwest initially as window-tainment for my cats, but now i love seeing them too and want to make sure they have some quality food during the cold weather. i have been trying different brands of food and so far this is the favorite! ive noticed that compared to the other brands this has way more sunflower seeds (their Fave!) and better looking quality plus variety with the peanuts and mealworms. They devoured this stuff so fast! Some other brands are full of the cheap yellow grains that the birds here will leave for hours and only eventually the hungriest come back to eat later in the day. This bag cost a little more but not really that much. i honestly think it’s so worth it for the quality and variety provided. Will keep this one in my autoship for sure!
I live in Southern California and have a dove over-population issue. Flocks of doves gobble up all the bird seeds I put out before the other kind of birds can get to it. This is mainly because a lot of vendor use white striped sunflower seeds and even though are a some in this bag, it also has a variety of other seeds that doves do not eat as well. I'm on my 2nd bag and have noticed a significant reduction of doves that come by bird feeders now. It's good to see a variety of different birds now.
