Maize Suet Balls
Maize Suet Balls
In our Maize Suet Balls we use a much high quantity of Maize than we do wheat to bind the fat balls together. This helps to keep the amount of wheat we use down, lowering the risk of attracting unwanted garden birds like Pigeons.
What are maize suet balls for birds?
We have taken our popular suet ball recipe and added maize, one of the highest oil and energy content of all cereals. The maize gives the suet ball a crumblier texture, making it easier to digest and preventing it from going too hard in winter. Its high-calorie contents help birds maintain a healthy weight, keeping them warm during cold seasons.

How to hang maize suet balls for birds
The best way to hang your maize suet balls is with a suet ball feeder. We sell a variety to choose from that can hold different quantities of balls. If you want to keep larger bird species such as Jackdaws and Pigeons away from your suet balls, we recommend using a suet ball feeder that comes with an outer cage.
How long do maize suet balls last
Our maize suet balls can last up to 12 months. This is due to the animal suet and other fats used in the recipe, which will eventually go off after a year.
Each ball is approximately 90g in weight. Please note suet ball products are measured by weight and all numbers are approximate.
