Birds love themThe birds seem to love these fat balls. Yes there were a lot of broken and crumbled ones in the pack which personally didn't really bother me because I use the broken ones on my bird table and ground feeder which pleases the robins and blackbirds. However for people who want them for hanging feeders only you may be disappointed due to the amount of broken balls in the box. By Queenie, on 13 Jan 2016
Wonderful - very popular with all sorts of birds!These suet balls are wonderful, they are so popular with robins, chaffinches, blackbirds, blue tits, great tits, marsh tits, and even a greater spotted woodpecker has been coming all week to the (first floor) window on which the feeder is hanging (the first woodpecker I have seen in 20 years!). I am hoping for even more bird visitors and have bought plenty of these suet balls in case the weather gets colder when there might be even more birds - but I am most happy with what I have so far. Thanks RSPB! By Jennyanycat, on 6 Jan 2016
Balls falling apart and brokenWe have been buying our bird food from RSPB for a number of years, but only recently started to buy the large bags of 150 fat balls. We previously bought them in smaller quantities.
In the previous bag there were a number broken, but my husband, who feeds the birds, reports that there were a lot of broken ones in this recent bag and a lot were in total crumbs. We are paying for balls, not crumbs, and I will reconsider where to buy the fat balls in future.
The result of the balls being so soft is that there is also a lot of bits of fatty mess on the ground below as not all of it gets eaten.
RSPB response: Thank you for your review, we are sorry to hear of these issues. These may have been damaged in transport, which can happen on occasion. These issues of crumbling are very rare and if you contact customer services they will be happy to help. We also have Super Suet balls available if you wish to try a more ‘premium’ ball.

- Product information
RSPB suet balls are made with our own unique recipe using premium grade suet, sunflower seeds and cereals. Ideal for feeding from a suet ball feeder or loose, whole or crumbled, on bird tables and ground feeding tables.
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:
- Blackbird - Blackcap - Blue tit - Great tit - House sparrow - Long-tailed tit - Robin - Starling
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.
There are no nets on our suet balls - or any other feed we make - we don't use them because birds and other wildlife can get trapped in them.
