[CT Birds] Suet

The only store that I know of selling suet is Stop and Shop. I buy three or four packages when I can as they often are out. I freezes the suet until needed. In a pich I use the commercial stuff. My birds eat all of it and hammer away all day every day. 

Perhaps the suet flavor you use is turning them off.

Speaking of bird chow...I see Lowe's has a chili-infused pellet-like food for birds. I assume to deters squirrels. Has anyone tried chill flavored bird food?

They like junk food, just like people!

My suet feeders are sometimes lost in the woods, but due to bears, not

I had been using commercial suet and the birds like it. I got hold of some
real, organic beef suet and put it out...they won't touch it and go for
suet feeder with the Ocean State stuff. Why?
