Suet Substitute

I always give the birds stale bread slices PLUS I feed them seeds and suet cakes but today (since I ran out of store bought suet cakes) I put them all together! I buttered the slice of bread with chunky peanut butter on each side (one side at a time) then dropped the bread into my bag of bird seed!


Each slice fits into the pre-made suet holders perfectly!

Perfect, simple, and best of all in my book, easily dun! Here's a thought: why not make a lard 'sammy'?

Bread is actually bad for birds. It has no nutritional value for them and is actually considered a junk food for them.


It can cause health problems for the birds as well.

In preschool we made a project, Im 39, so it has been many years. We tied yarn to a pine cone to make a hanger, then coated it with peanut butter, last step was to coat it with birdseed.


No fancy suet cake holder needed.
