Fat Balls & Suet
We often spend a lot of time trying to avoid eating too much fat as we know that it is bad for our health. Although the idea of eating pure fat is unthinkable for us, fat is something that your garden birds enjoy eating and need to eat for their health.Read More
Birds naturally convert fruit, oily nuts and insects that they eat into fat to use and to store when food is scarce, so by providing fat balls and suet, you are helping them. Birds need fat for energy, keeping them warm, flying and singing. Garden birds even use fat stores overnight when they are still burning energy to stay alive.
Never feed birds excess cooking fat as this solidified fat can smear onto the birds’ feathers and will damage them; only ever feed them lard and suet fat balls.
Our specially made bird fat balls and suet
Ark`s suet for birds is produced by melting the highest quality tallow fat and blending it with a variety of seeds, nuts, berries and insects. These 100% natural suet treats are then poured into one of a number of shaped trays or rolled into balls and pellets and allowed to harden.
Due to the high quality bird suet used in our fat and suet products, they will become soft and pliable during hot weather, or if exposed to excess heat during delivery and in storage. To return Ark`s suet for birds to normal hardness, simply place in the refrigerator for a short time.
No plastic nets
All of our suet for birds is supplied net free, because these are a hazard to birds and other wildlife.
We have a range of fat ball feeders for sale, so that you don’t need the plastic nets to hang them.
Wild birds also need water as much as food for drinking and bathing. We always recommend putting fresh clean water out every day of the year.
