Can you put suet pellets in a peanut feeder?

Yes, a peanut feeder can also work as a suet pellet feeder and is suitable for dispensing standard-sized suet pellets to attract garden birds. Our Ready Peck Suet Pellets are crafted to the appropriate size, allowing the peanut feeder to secure them in position. Birds can then pull the pellets through the mesh holes with ease.

What is the best peanut feeder for birds?

The best peanut feeders for birds are made of sturdy material and have appropriate ventilation to avoid moisture buildup and mould growth on the peanuts. Peanut Feeders that are also designed for easy cleaning are great to choose from, as they help maintain the birds' health. Above is an excellent selection of high-quality feeders to choose from, including squirrel-proof peanut feeders.

How do birds get peanuts out of a feeder?

Birds use their beaks and agile feet to extract peanuts from a mesh peanut bird feeder. Using their feet, birds cling to the mesh openings on the feeder. Many birds, such as tits, finches, and nuthatches, have adapted to cling to vertical surfaces, allowing them to easily access the feeder. Birds will then poke their beaks through the openings, reaching for the peanuts inside the feeder, and pulling out individual peanuts through the mesh openings. The size of the mesh is typically designed to allow birds to remove peanuts while preventing them from falling out too easily. Once a bird has successfully extracted a peanut, it may fly to a nearby perch or stay on the feeder to consume the nut. Some birds may hold the peanut with their feet while pecking at it to open and eat the contents.

When should you stop feeding peanuts to birds?

Feeding peanuts to birds can be a beneficial practice, providing them with a high-energy food source, especially during the colder months when natural food supplies are scarce. However, avoid putting out whole peanuts in the spring and summer when the nesting season is in full swing. Parent birds may feed their fledglings an entire peanut, and this can pose a choking hazard. You can opt to use peanut granules instead. These finely broken-down pieces are suitable even for the smallest beaks to consume safely. If you notice that the peanuts in your feeder are becoming mouldy or spoiled, it's crucial to stop feeding them. Mouldy food can be harmful to birds and may cause various health issues.

How often should I change peanuts in bird feeder?

As a general rule, it's good practice to clean and refill bird feeders, including peanut feeders, at least once every two weeks. However, depending on weather conditions and birding activity, more frequent checks may be necessary. Bird feeder peanuts can become more susceptible to mould and spoilage during humid or wet weather. If you observe high bird activity and the peanuts are quickly consumed, you should refill the feeder more often, especially during colder months when birds require more energy.
