Brome Squirrel Proof Thistle Feeder
Made in USA.

Finally, the first squirrel proof thistle feeder all set to go. Sure, you can add baffles or cages to a regular thistle feeder, but this is ready to go just the way it is. The squirrel's weight closes down the outer cage to shut off the food supply. The food is blocked off and the squirrel cannot get at it. Add to this Brome's unique tube style which allows better ventilation to keep seed drier and fresher. Dismantles easily for cleaning. One of the best new feeders on the market. Comes nicely boxed to wrap as a gift.

Seed Scoop/Funnel
For you messy people who need help filling your feeders, this is the best invention ever! Just scoop up your seed from the bag, then fill your feeder from the scoop through the funnel handle by sliding open the lever.
$4.98
Super Duper Seed Scoop
If you fill your feeders from big bags or cans, this jumbo scoop will probably fill a feeder with one scoop. It does require a learning curve and coordination since both ends are open (we can't leave them out for customers to use). Once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Would also be great for potting soil, dog food, but probably not punch. By Droll Yankee and blue.

Feeder Tips to Keep Birds Safe & Healthy:

* The seed you saved over the winter will NOT be any good next spring, or vice versa.

* Do not put new thistle on top of old thistle. Pour the old into something, put your fresh thistle in the feeder, then put the old seed on top. This will keep the feeder cleaner and the old seed from getting yucky and moldy on the bottom which will make birds sick.

* Empty and dry your feeder out after a heavy rain.

* Take your feeder apart and wash the whole thing good in soapy water at least once a season.
