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.

    Attractive hanging in the gardens

    By on

    The food ball is simple design and easy to fill and clean. I am considering purchasing a few more and hanging them under one another.

    Nice bird feeder

    By on

    Better when the seeds are larger, like sunflower seeds. The little seeds just drop out. More for the ground critters.

    Simple, functional and stylish

    By on

    Easy to setup, fill and refill. Perfect size for all types of birds, smaller ones land directly on feeder and larger birds eat what drops below. I have several stratigaically placed to attract many different and elegant birds of all sizes.

    seed feeder

    By on

    Its actually a nice item for feeding sunflower seeds to birds but it was suppose to keep the squirrels out of it and didnt work for that purpose. A slight movement and the seeds shake out and so far all I have seen eating from it our squirrels, so I stuck it further on the branch but I haven't notice whats going on with it since then.

    Great feeder, with a few small modifications

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    I have this feeder in green, and it's durable, affordable, and been a huge hit with all the birds in my area. It's survived two 20-ft falls off my deck with only a dent. I made a few modifications, first using a couple loosely-connected zip-ties to create a chain linking the lid to the hanger so I don't have to worry about dropping/losing it. Not long after I hung it up, I found the seed at the bottom moldy and harboring earwigs after a 3-day drizzle. To fix that problem, I used a pair of pliers to hook the chain back around onto the ball so it hangs at about a 60 degree angle. That puts the solid "bottom" of the feeder to the side so it can drain through the mesh instead, and the woodpeckers I have this feeder in green, and it's durable, affordable, and been a huge hit with all the birds in my area.

I switched to a mix of shelled peanuts and suet nuggets (https://www.chewy.com/cs-peanut-suet-nuggets-wild-bird-food/dp/133241) and now I have a steady stream of wrens, chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, titmice, even goldfinches and purple/house finches coming to this feeder, and no mess!-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Also, it is most certainly NOT squirrel-proof, but a longer shepherd's hook and a big baffle have solved that problem for me. With the modifications, this is a perfect little feeder! … more

    Difficult lid

    By on

    The lid is difficult to get back on. Mine apparently was not on securely yesterday and is now missing so my Finches are inside the ball gorging themselves.

    Does the job

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    I bought this for my mom so she could attract different birds. More often we are picking it off the ground where squirrels seem to knock it out of tree. I’m waiting for one to carry it off

    Cute and attractive feeder

    By on

    This ball feeder is perfect for black oil sunflower seeds right outside my window. I have several other types of feeders as well. This one is an eye catcher as well as the little songbirds like it.

    Birds didn't go near it

    By on

    Not sure why, but I thought this was going to be a winner:( I have two other regular bird feeders that are constantly being emptied. They don't go anywhere near this. I tried moving to the same spot as the others and switching it around. Nothing Not a bite If I could get my money back or get a regular one in its place, It would make me happy

    CUTE! i really like it.

    By on

    it is small but nice to look at in the morning while birds are feeding. i fill w/black sunflower seeds to attract cardinals as i think wild bird seed will just fall through the semi-wide cracks.
