New recipe is too hard

I got some of these in a mixed pack and noticed that it states on the front of the packet that it is a new recipe. I am finding that the birds are not able to eat these as they are too hard and don't seem to be able to peck through it. If I break it all up and put it on the table there is a little bit more success. I also have coconut shells as part of the pack and these are great so think they are a different recipe.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, although some packaging still says new recipe there has been no change to the recipe for a few years. The suet should be good for all year round feeding although in very cold weather it can get a bit harder. Breaking it up as you have done is helpful to the birds in this case. By Liz, on 6 Jan 2018

Really popular

These cakes are very popular with the starlings, house sparrows, blue, coal, long-tailed and great tits in the garden. As other reviewers have said they vanish in hours, and in the spring and summer the noise of the fledgeling starlings and sparrows lining up nearby can be deafening - they woke my sleeping grandchild, who was then fascinated by the spectacle!

While there is some wastage, with quite a lot of the suet left on the ground beneath the feeders, which gets raked over by the blackbirds, robins and pigeons, etc, it does need to be shovelled up periodically by the other half - it gets a bit smelly :(

While I could get these cakes more cheaply on the high street than the bumper box of 40, I choose to buy them through RSPB both to support the organisation and to buy British (which I assume UK made means).

RSPB response: Thank you for your lovely review and continuing to support the RSPB by purchasing our super suet cakes! By Mayzie, on 12 Oct 2017

Vanish in hours!

The mealworm suet cakes are extremely popular with the birds in my garden. At this time of year (actually probably from about May) the birds queue up, and the noise of the starlings in particular is intense as they fight to get their shares. One often lasts much less than a day, so they have to sit and wait til I get back from work and replenish the feeder.

The sparrow and starling fledgelings sitting on the fence and feeding station are now getting a little more independent so can help themselves, rather than squawking for attention!

Would thoroughly recommend these, I order the 40 pack, and the delivery service is excellent, my orders tend to arrive before I get notification of their despatch - thankfully the driver usually leaves the parcel, so its not an issue :) By Mary, on 13 Jul 2017
