Red dye is harmful to hummingbirds. Only use clear. Kaytee brand.
THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT AND BY USING THE CONCENTRATE PERKY PET IT GOES SO MUCH FARTHER.
hummingbirds go nuts over this stuff, no mixing makes so much easier and can't beat the price
I filled my Hummingbird feeder with Perky Pet to try instead of my own mix. Sat for a week and did not see one Hummingbird. I Refilled Feeder with my own Sugar mix and in less than two days their are lots of Hummingbirds and feeder is half empty. Sorry but product does not work for some reason. Cheeks
If I could give this zero stars, I would. This product is harmful to hummingbirds. They should never consume artificial dye. And there is no reason the nectar should be red. Please save your birds and your money, and make your own food with one part sugar to three parts water.
I follow a hummingbird site on FB. They strongly suggest NOT to use dye. Lethal for hummingbirds. Four part water to 1 part sugar. Love Chewy product's for my dogs. Sorry chewy.
The hummingbirds don't actually like the red dye. It's simple to make a hummingbird food they will devour one part sugar, three parts boiling water.
This nectar is poison to hummingbirds. Its just like you giving your child or grandchild a cup of antifreeze in an 8oz glass of water. These companies know dyes are bad for the tiny birds that weigh less than a nickel, but it's still being sold for profit. Theres nothing healthy about these store bought "nectars". The hummingbirds have kidneys the size of a pea. They cannot metabolize the junk in the store bought nectar, especially the petroleum based coloring.... which in turn cause kidney damage, then failure, then a slow painful death!! Flower nectar is sugar and water. Flower nectar it s not red. Not all the flowers hummingbirds get nectar from are red. Save your money and buy pure cane sugar. It's the healthy way to feed them and it saves you money! #helpsaveourhummingbirds #noreddyes
When I first got this I used it and noticed that the hummers found it but the did not want it. I checked it out and every one on the internet said use 1 part sugar and 3 parts boiling water and no red dye. I tried this and they love it. This nectar is 40% sugar.
Nectar is from concentrate but very easy to mix. One part Nectar to 3 parts cold water. Since the Nectar has to be changed every 3 days in the summer, using the concentrated version makes it cost effective....and the Charms love it!
