How do you keep squirrels off bird feeder
Answer by ChewyApr 12, 2019
To keep squirrels out of bird feeders, one option is slip the feeder onto a long wire and hang it between two trees, but away from any low branches. If your bird feeder sits on a pole and you’re pestered by squirrels stealing the seeds, purchase a squirrel baffle. Make sure the baffle is high enough that the squirrels can’t jump past it.

We love feeding the quails on our high prairie country. Will they eat this?
Answer by ChewyApr 21, 2020
This seed is recommended for wild birds such as Cardinals, Jays, Finches, Chikadees, Titmice, Grosbeaks, Juncos, Nuthatches, Woodpeckers, and Doves.

Birds love it

My local stores were out of bird food so I turned to Chewy since I already get all my cat food from them. They had just what I needed for my outside feeders and delivered in 1 day!! Birds are very happy. Getting ready for the Great Backyard Bird Count

Too Expensive

I gave this seed a 4 star review because it really does attract a whole bunch of different types of birds... But the bag I got had a ton of fillers and all the birds loved my sunflower seeds more. I have both seed out and a wide variety of feeders. It is also pretty pricey. Like I said though it does attract a wide variety of birds!

My wild birds voted for this Wagner food the best. I can hardly keep my feeders from being emptied.

This birdseed quality has gone way down.

I purchase 2 bags of this birdseed through auto ship every month and it used to be really good quality food with different kinds of seeds and nuts and would attract all kinds of various birds to my feeder. Wagners has completely changed the formula and now it contains mostly sunflower seeds and tiny useless seeds. Not only that, the last several bags I’ve purchased contain a lot of sticks, nut shells and inedible debris as a filler-see my picture. I’m very disappointed because this used to be a really good quality bird food for the money, but now I’m paying for mostly waste and sunflower seeds and my bird feeder is now attracting mostly blue jays and blackbirds. I am not seeing any cardinals or other smaller birds that used to come. I will definitely be finding a different brand. I see others have posted similar reviews about this food. Too bad Wagners had to go cheap and try to save money because they will lose a lot of loyal customers now.

Seed Quality - Wagners Greatest

Insects in Wagners Greatest Variety; very disappointed

Birds go through this seed way too fast

Maybe it's me but even through the very small holes with a rubber dispenser, the birds go through this in one day. Moving on to try other ones

Not The Same

I have been purchasing the Greatest Variety for years and loved the variety of birds that it attracted to my feeders. This last batch I purchased was horrible. First, it claims the bag contains 16lbs, but the bags I received from this past order are much smaller than ever before. Not only that, but the seed mixture change drastically. It was always full of sunflower seeds and an abundance of safflower seeds which my cardinals loved. Now the bulk of the seed is that red millet, which was never an ingredient or if it was it was so small you didn’t notice it. The amount of safflower is barely noticeable and same with the sunflower seed. Since using this latest shipment of seed, there are no cardinals coming to my feeders, only mass quantities of dove and various blackbirds that bully other birds. The red millet is always left and only the doves will eat it if nothing else is available. I chose this Wagners Greatest Variety because it originally had no junk seed and was I was willing to pay extra for its omission. Now I am looking into other brands because this is a huge waste of money. If all you want are the nuisance birds trashing your garden and feeder then you are in luck with this choice. I am so disappointed and also angry at the smaller bags that they are trying to pass off as 16 lbs. Wagners has gone downhill!

Like Chewy a lot .....

It was the first time I used Chewy to order my bird food -- very prompt in delivery and gave me just what I ordered. Will use Chewy again for all sorts of pet needs, daughter has two cats and son has a dog so will keep you in mind when I send "gifts" to the cats and dogs. Thank you for your service. Alice Siegle

this used to be the best

this used to be the best wild bird food, but the 2 bags i just bought has mostly red millet/milo and hardly the variety seed etc that you usually get. It is very disappointing! especially when the price went up over $6.00 more a bag.
