For people who have a variety of critters in the neighborhood, you truly won't have to worry about waste. Besides the usual sparrows, mourning doves, and house finches, I have a few species of woodpeckers, blue Jays, cardinals, chickadees and nut hatches that visit. Squirrels make short work of the peanuts that the birds miss. Only problem is the deer really seem to like it too, so I'll need to get a new cage feeder that'll keep them out. Without the deer robbing my feeder, the seed actually lasts a few days before I need to refill it and a bag will last me a little under a week and there's always hungry visitors. A 20 lb bag with corn, red milo and other filler lasts just as long as this 10lb bag but leaves a huge mess so this is truly worth it to invest in.
I jumped at the chance to order this, price was the first consideration then a review of the ingredients were the clincher. Well the birds are not impressed. I clean and fill the feeders at 4:00pm every day, and by 7:00am the following morning the feeders are mostly empty and I fill the feeders again for the day. That has been the routine with my previous no waste bird seed. This new seed is so full of peanuts and filler seed, the ground squirrels aren't eating the peanuts, the birds are leaving 75 percent of the seed, the feeders were still 3/4 full this morning, and no birds. I ate a couple of the peanuts, they were bitter. So I have tossed everything out and filled the feeders with the original no waste seed. I live in Southern California along the coast, and have a good variety of species of birds, so I will go back to feeding them with my original no waste seed.
I live in So Cal and have been feeding the birds for years. The seed I usually feed them has more than doubled in price so I tried this brand. Seed sat there and the birds went elsewhere. Switched to the Kaytee no mess and they came back.
Blue Jays, Cardinals, woodpeckers, tiny black and white birds, blackbirds with tan heads, Mourning doves, sparrows are eating me out of house and home! Fortunately, the price of this seed is quite reasonable so the birds can always count on a meal at my house! The squirls love it too, unfortunately. I put a little in a flat bowl for them so they will not climb up the bird feeder. This works pretty well.
Most of the seeds end up on the ground. Birds don't want the tiny round filler seeds. I'm buying the sunflower chips but thought I'd try these. But the chips are less messy. So I'm going back to them.
I’m sure it’s fine for some backyard feeders, but the only birds to visit my 6th floor balcony feeder are house finches and gold finches. They fling out the nuts and smaller seeds, and only eat the sunflower seeds. What a mess. Lesson learned!
This is awful. Small amounts of peanuts and sunflower seed. The birds pick out the sunflower and peanuts but aren't really that thrilled about the peanuts either. They usually love peanuts. It's mostly filler seed that I'm sweeping up and tossing out. I took it off my auto ship. Very disappointed.
This was my favorite, everyone loved it, it truly was no waste in our yard but then they changed the peanuts and no one will eat them. Unfortunately it's no longer no waste. I hope enough people say something that they will fix this. Also, the bag rips often, seals won't stay and the seeds leak out, they need stronger bags as well, some were broken on arrival but when I've contacted Chewy they took care of it. Otherwise perfect.
All the wild critters that come to visit absolutely love this food and it's less wasteful!
I really never take time to write reviews but I’m so very, very disappointed in this no-waste bird seed, which appears to be about 90% millet and canary seed filler. I would’ve expected much better from something labeled no-waste based on other purchases. What a waste of time and money and I still have to go out and buy something for our birds to eat today.
