Instructions

Fill with black oil sunflower seed, safflower mix, and peanut pieces. Before filling your feeder with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken: * Remove all old seed. * Soak feeder in a light water/bleach solution (9 parts H20 to 1 part bleach). * Scrub feeder and allow to air dry. * Rake and remove accumulated hulls and droppings from underneath the feeders. * Spread mulch (bark or wood) under the feeder, replace mulch when soiled. To prevent mold growth, use weatherproof feeders when conditions are humid or wet. * Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

  • Cardinal fun

    By on

    Have had great fun watching the cardinal pair that are nesting right out front feeding at the feeder and it also attracted a rose breasted grosbeak which I had never seen before.

  • Easy to fill, durable.

    By on

    This is a very useful feeder but the squirrels eat more of the food than the birds. It needs to have some sort of baffle to keep the squirrels off the feeder. I'm looking for a solution at this time.

  • Easy assembly and holds a good amount of seed!

    By on

    unit arrived quickly, no real assembly required, just expanding from its folded position. Holds a healthy amount of seed so I don't have to refill constantly! I've had it a week and have already seen a Cardinal!

  • The Cardinals seem to love it!

    By on

    I have a feeder filled with black oil sunflower seeds hanging right outside my window in an arborvitae tree. It is always full of chickadees and nut hatches, but the cardinals who come by have a difficult time because the perch is too short for them, so I wanted to find another solution. After researching online, I found this feeder and after more research, found this to be the best price. When it arrived, I admit I was a little shocked at the flat packaging, but was soon relieved when I pulled it out and realized the chain link mesh pulled out to full size. I immediately filled it with black oil sunflower seeds and hung it near the existing feeder.

When it arrived, I admit I was a little shocked at the flat packaging, but was soon relieved when I pulled it out and realized the chain link mesh pulled out to full size. I immediately filled it with black oil sunflower seeds and hung it near the existing feeder. So far, I have had four different cardinals come by...more than I have ever seen at once. Two males and two females. And of course, now the chickadees and nuthatches have another spot to feed from...they love it, too. The only downside so far has been that the squirrels have also found a new spot! My other feeder is totally squirrel proof and they are unable to get into it, so they finally gave up. This one, not so much. While they are unable to get the seeds through the wire mesh, they have no trouble at all shaking them down to the tray area and feeding from there. Mind you, I also feed the squirrels on the other side of the lawn...I just wish this were squirrel proof as they seem to chase the birds away when they're around. Would give it a 5 stars if not for that. FYI - Birds seem to have no trouble pulling the Black Oil Sunflower seeds through the mesh. But stay away from the striped sunflower seeds when filling this, as they are too big. … more

  • This product is durable

    By on

    I had ordered this product prior to my recent purchase. During the Spring season bears tried to remove it from my feeder pole but I had secured it with wire, it was impossible to remove. The Bears battered and dented it but was still useable. The deer also tried and failed to remove it from the feeding pole. I highly recommend this product. The price is great too !

  • Disappointing

    By on

    The holes in the mesh feeder are too small and it is very difficult for the birds to remove the sunflower seeds.
