Inside the bird food there is a supplement which is unique to Peckish, CalVita. The main purpose of CalVita is to provide wild birds with all the necessary minerals and vitamins they need to stay healthy. The calcium inside aids the growth of bones and feathers, and helps boost egg production. Vitamins such as A, D, E and Biotin are all present, encouraging the growth and development of the birds’ beaks and bones. Finally, the supplement contains Carotenoids which protects them from the sunlight and retains and develops their feather colour.
You can use this handy feeder for your suet cakes.
To retain a happy and hygienic environment for the wild birds make sure they have an abundance of water. To avoid the spreading of bacteria and diseases make sure to keep the food fresh and dry and that the drinking and feeding areas are cleaned with a mild disinfectant.
Where to site
Site your feeder 2 metres from cover to make the feeder visible, whilst providing a safe place to retreat. Put out food at the start of the day to ensure that birds can replace the energy they have lost overnight.
With food resources scarcer in winter, it is essential to feed garden birds all year round. Once you have started to feed the birds it is important to continue this, and develop a routine, as the birds will become reliant upon your help.
