FAQ

Where should I locate my feeder to attract the most birds?

Make sure that your feeder is close to natural shelter such as trees and shrubs to provide protection for your birds, but be careful not to make it too convenient for squirrels. Also, place it in a location so that you can enjoy watching the activities of your feathered friends.

Should I feed the birds year - round?

Yes, birds need food year - round, so it is best to keep bird feeders full all year or else the birds will leave. Birds have a high metabolism and need to continually eat. Birds nest from late winter through late summer and during these months there is not an abundance of natural foods, so they need additional food for breeding and raising their young. From early fall through the winter, natural food sources become harder to find so it is important to keep feeders full with bird seed during this time. You can enjoy your birds 12 months of the year.

What is the best bird food?

To attract the greatest variety of birds, feed the birds the seeds they like to eat. Oil Sunflower Seed is 1 of the best seeds to have in a wild bird food mix. It is popular with a large number of species and is easy to feed in a variety of feeder styles. Wagner's blends provide a wide selection of seed choices (including ones which contain Oil Sunflower) that will attract the largest variety of birds to the backyard feeder. Wagner's has the mixes that will attract the species you want and will fit any budget.

How can I attract specific birds and not attract others (e.g. starlings, grackles and cowbirds)?

Make sure that you have the right bird food to attract specific birds. Sunflower is a great seed that many species love. Also specialty blends, such as Wagner's Cardinal Blend or Finches Supreme, will attract these specific birds. Birdseed with less milo and corn won't attract as many cowbirds, grackles and starlings if you would rather not see these birds.

How do I stop squirrels from eating all of my birdseed?

Squirrels are a common problem at bird feeders. There are now a number of feeder styles designed to prevent squirrels from reaching the seed. For example, some use a weighted system that closes the feeder port when the weight of a squirrel is sensed. Squirrel baffles are also available to place above or below your feeder (depending on how your feeder is mounted) to prevent the squirrels from reaching your feeder. Additionally, there are 2 seeds that squirrels do not like - - safflower and nyjer seed. An optional method is to supply the squirrels with their own supply of food away from the bird feeder area. Cracked corn works nicely.

Where and how should I store my bird seed after I bring it home?

The best place to store your bird seed is elevated on a shelf in a cool, dry location in your garage, basement or storage shed. Whether you keep your bird seed in the original bag or in a storage container, you should make sure that it is closed or sealed tightly. It is also important that the storage location has good air circulation and is away from direct sunlight or heat source. You should avoid storing your bird seed on a cement floor, since moisture from the floor can be transferred to the seed. Keeping your seed dry will help it last longer.

Should I clean my feeder and how often should I do it?

Moldy or decomposing seeds are not healthy for birds to eat. You should wash and disinfect your feeder at least once a month and more frequently during wet weather. First wash the feeder in hot, soapy water and rinse thoroughly. To disinfect the feeder, immerse it for a couple of minutes in a solution of 1 part household bleach to 9 parts water. Rinse again completely with clean water and dry before refilling. You should thoroughly wash your hands after you have finished cleaning your feeder.

They've also been the first to market black oil sunflower seed, regional blends, and deluxe and premium bird foods.

    Birds won't touch

    Was so excited when this arrived because I had been completely out of bird seed but the birds will not eat this food. So disappointed.

    Very disappointed

    By on

    The product is great and the deer and birds love it. The problem is the packaging. When I first bought this brought at least a year ago, the first few shipments were packaged in a heavy duty plastic bag with a resealable zip top (as shown in Chewy's product photo on their website.) But what is shipped to me is corn packaged in a very thin plastic bag that can't be resealed or can't take the weight of the corn. The last 3 shipments I ordered, at least 3 of the bags had holes in them and the corn leaked everywhere. I'm very disappointed in the change of packaging and the waste of my money.

    Gave cracked corn to my Geese And they loved it. I am trying to get them healthy so they can make the annual migration. I have two adults and four young that I feed.This is the recommended food for them. They should not be given bread. Feeding should not be prolonged or they will tend to stay in this area and not in my grade as they should.

    This is a great food for both wild birds and also, after reading, pet birds can have some as a side treat.

    Surprisingly popular

    By on

    I like to give the birds a variety of seed in the feeders. Thought I'd try to add some cracked corn to the mix and they love it. I also put cracked corn, safflower seeds and sunflower hearts out in a dish for the bunnies....they love it too.

    Great feeding experience

    By on

    My granddaughter has been feeding "her" ducks for 2 years and they enjoy it so much that they bring their ducklings to visit. Since my granddaughter is newly diagnosed with a peanut allergy, I'm hoping the corn doesn't get cross contamination

    Good for Squirrels

    I feed the corn to my squirrels, chipmunks and ground feeding birds. It must be good, because everyone chows down.

    product good, packaging poor

    By on

    The birds and other critters love this. The only problem is that when I received it the bag had ripped open near the top seam. Presumably it happening shortly before it was delivered as otherwise there would not have been anything left in it. And that occurred inside a heavy cardboard shipping box.
