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.

    Sturdy but holes could be bigger

    By AliS on Jan 10, 2021

    This seems to be well made and the squirrels haven't destroyed them like they have others of the type, but I'm also not seeing a lot of evidence of the birds managing to get seeds out. I've filled them and they're barely down an inch in two weeks. I hope it's just the birds needing time to get used to it.

    Not bad....but not great FOR ME....

    By Sandy on Jan 3, 2021

    Using seed specific for "song birds/mid western birds" = small seed fall out and larger seeds the birds find difficult to extract.

    Birds love it.

    By birdlover on Jan 7, 2021

    This ball is hanging in a camellia bush outside my study window and there are always 1 or 2 birds hanging on it. Easy to fill.

    Happy birds

    By fishparent on Oct 24, 2020

    I purchased two seed ball wild bird feeders and am very happy with them. The birds hang on the side of the feeders and are fun to watch. Squirrels have not been able to get to the food after weeks of trying.

    Dont waste your time

    By Alib on Nov 17, 2020

    TINY, about the size of a large grapefruit and black seeds are hard for the birds to get out. VERY flimsy in its construction. Save your $$

    Answer for my needs!

    By Speedy on Aug 5, 2020

    I live by a National Park where it is common for bears to raid our feeders. I was looking for an inexpensive black oil sunflower seed feeder for our birds, and found this one! Easy to fill, and have finches, cardinals, nuthatches, chick-a-dees and others feeding from it!! And - will be inexpensive to replace after the next bear finishes with it!!
