coconuit shell feeders

the 'string' attached to the coconut shell feeders isn't really a problem at all ! If you feel it's insecure attach your own 'cord', i.e. maybe even nylon garden twine which I find (for its usual use) is, with a secure knot, very unlikely to come loose or be chewed through by birds attempting to dislodge or unhook the shell. The size of the shell is not predetermined by RSPB, they can only use and offer for sale whatever/whichever ones they get in ! As for smaller birds getting a fair chance, you cant have it all ways ! !...leave the shell on the ground and it's a free-for-all and they have to take their chance along with larger birds....I find that suspending the shell from the edge of a feeding table does not stop larger birds having a go at it, but leaves better chance for smaller birds....I see larger birds such as pigeons greedily eating from a shell left on the ground but seldom if ever trying to hang upside down in order to cling to and feed from a suspended shell.

Much smaller now

I've bought these treats many times over the past few years and the birds love them. However, the boxes bought recently (Oct to Dec 2016) contain much smaller shells. About 30% smaller than before in fact. As the product is priced and sold in unit number, this is a significant reduction in the amount of feed provided. Very disappointed.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, sorry to hear that you are disappointed. The coconut shells are natural and are bought by our supplier as they come therefore sizes can vary and it is not a decision to reduce the size. However we will pass on your comments to the supplier and check that supply of the shells has not changed. By Just me, on 24 Jan 2017

Coconut shell treats

I think your short cord shells are an improvement.
My daughter gave me wire hanger with two positions to hang
shells on. The long cords caused a collision preventing total
clearance without intervention.
Please offer short cords as an option.
Suggestion:
Mix a small quantity (10% by volume ) Niger into sunflower hearts,
It helps the seed to run in the feeder and entices other varieties
to the feeding station. By Nonin, on 24 Mar 2016

Product information

A best-selling bird food!
Who gets more pleasure out of these, the blue tits, long-tailed tits and other beautiful species who devour them - or you watching them clinging to a suspended coconut shell, contentedly pecking at its contents?
Each easy-to-hang shell contains a nutritious mix of our premium suet, seeds and cereals, and weighs around 275 g. Supplied in a recyclable cardboard box. Filled in the UK.

Most garden birds will eat many different foods. Here's a quick guide to the birds that particularly enjoy this food, though other species may also enjoy it too:

- Blackcap - Blue tit - Coal tit - Great tit
- Long-tailed tit - Starling
Advice
Our suet products are specially formulated to make them suitable for year-round feeding. However, if positioned in direct sunlight they may soften or melt in very hot weather. If this is happening, try placing them in a shaded spot instead, or waiting until the weather is cooler.
