Your questions answered

Can bird food get wet?

Yes, bird food can get wet, but it's not ideal. Wet bird food can lead to the growth of mould and bacteria, which can be harmful to birds. When bird food gets wet, it clumps together, making it difficult for birds to eat. Moreover, damp conditions can cause the seed to sprout, rendering it inedible for birds. To prevent bird food from getting wet, it's advisable to use weather-proof feeders, keep the feeding area clean, and only put out as much food as birds can consume in a day or two. This ensures the food remains fresh and safe for bird consumption.

Why do birds throw their bird food?

Poor quality bird food is often bulked out with ‘filler’ seeds and grains of low nutritional value, such as wheat and split peas. These are undesirable to small birds and so they may often ‘pick out’ the seeds or foods that they prefer, discarding those that are less appetising or less nutritional. Special Mix™ contains no wheat or fillers, so there’s nothing birds will pick out. Attract a wider variety of birds to your garden by choosing a high quality, highly nutritional, and wheat-free blend of bird food, such as Special Mix.

Can bird food go bad?

Yes, bird food can turn bad if it is not stored in the correct way, or is exposed to excessive moisture, which can lead to a buildup of mould and bacteria on the food. It should therefore be stored in a cool, dry place which will help to keep it fresher for longer. Make sure to store your bird food in tightly sealed, chew-proof containers, to eliminate any risk of unwanted pests and rodents infesting your supplies.

Can bird food be harmful to dogs?

Certain bird food blends may contain particular ingredients which can be harmful to dogs if consumed. For instance, raisins and macadamia nuts, which are found in some bird food mixes, are highly toxic to dogs. Whole or large peanut pieces could also fall to the ground, creating a possible choking hazard for smaller breeds. It is also important to make sure that your bird food does not build up on the ground below feeders, especially in wet conditions. Over time, this can lead to mould and bacteria contamination, which if then ingested, could also pose a risk to a dog’s health.
