To prevent mold growth, use weatherproof feeders when conditions are humid or wet. * Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.

FAQ

Birds at my feeder look sick, what should I do?

The best thing to do is to stop feeding the birds temporarily. Remove the feeders and throw out all of the seed. Thoroughly wash your feeders. Remove all debris from under your feeder. Do not touch the sick birds. Refill all of your feeders and resume feeding.

How do I prevent seeds from sprouting under my feeder?

You will need to sterilize your seed to prevent it from germinating. This will not alter the attractiveness or the nutritional value of the seed in any way.Here are two methods:Conventional Oven: Place the seed on a baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes at 300°F.Microwave Oven: Place seed in a paper bag. Cook on high power for 5 minutes.

Why does the seed in my feeder get moldy?

Mold is caused by a heavy rain, driving sleet or snow plugging the feeding ports and allowing water to dampen the seed. Always clean, dry and refill your feeders after heavy weather. You may also want to try placing 1/4" of cat litter in the bottom of the feeder to absorb excess moisture.

  • Nice feeder, but not squirrel-proof

    By on

    I was trying to find a feeder that the squirrels would not destroy. This being all metal & not plastic, fills that need. However, the squirrels still manage to sit on the edge & extract the sunflower seeds, even after treating the seeds with Flaming Squirrel deterrant. I have come to realize they will not be stopped by anything.

  • Best Squirrel Proof Feeder Ever!

    By on

    Love this feeder filled with only black sunflower seed. Attracts blue jays, red bellied woodpeckers, white breasted nuthatches, cardinals, chickadees, titmice etc. just as advertised.

  • The birds like it!

    By on

    Simple, works well & easy to fill. Needs to be refilled before it's quite empty because the seeds pile-up in the center & birds can't reach them....not a problem, just to be aware.

  • Nice idea but birds don't seem to use it.

    By on

    Maybe if it were the only feeder I had, it would be fine but my sunflower-loving birds don't seem interested. Maybe seeds are too hard to extract?

  • Birds love it

    By on

    Unfortunately so do the squirrels. This feeder is easy to fill. I thought the squirrels would not be able to get the seeds out of it but they do.

  • Sturdy, good quality

    By on

    Item is made well but the birds don't go near it. It seems more of a hassle for them to get at the seeds.

    Finally a feeder that allows the birds to eat and the other animals leave it alone.

  • Disappointing

    By on

    The birds are unable to get the seeds out. The holes are too small.
