Feeders Ready?
Get them ready:

  • Check your feeder for any broken parts.
  • Wash the feeders in light bleach solution, and rinse well with water to remove any bacteria.
  • Test the feeder for leaks by filling it with water and hanging it up.
  • Be safe and skip the red-colored dye! All you need are sugar and water. The basic recipe is 1 part ordinary white granulated sugar to 4 parts water.
