Please could you produce an attachment to solve the problem?

I imagine it would be something like: a piece of dowel/tubing about 6 ins long, with something halfway along it to prevent it falling through the candelabra socket - e.g. a nail stuck through the dowel, or a skirt moulded onto the tubing. Then the bottom half goes in the candelabra socket, and the top half sticks up so you can slide the fat feeder socket over it.

I don't really want to hang the fat feeder on its chain, as I bought it to attract blackbirds, starlings etc which like plenty of room to stand on top. Thanks.
Thank you for your comments, it is a very good point. We will look at this and see how we can make this improvement.

Many thanks

Lisa

Thanks Lisa. It didn't really offend me - it just got in the way when you tried reading the proper messages. Cheers and thanks for removing it.

It would be really nice if CJ would come up with a sampler sized pack of each feed, so we could try new feeds out without fear of waste or staleness.

We have a local department type market/store called Instore, I think they are also called Poundstretchers in some parts of the country too. They sell packs of nuts at say 50 pence that are just enough to fill one of their feeders, or maybe not quite fill them. They also do black sun flower seeds and loads of others, in that same sort of size.

It means you can just give a certain type of feed a try, to see how it goes in your locality. If CJ would do this it would be great, but I'd rather like to see a pack that does maybe two fills of a small Defender or something like that, it would be a great way to try something new out, especially since many report buying a lot of a certain type of feed and then finding the birds are not interested, which seems a shame due to wasting the stuff really.

This would allow you to find a firm favourite first and only then stock up if it's a really popular one for your area, and not just novelty value that made them go for it to start with.

Also good for this sort of time of year when birds can get a bit choosy about what they actually fancy eating! You could switch feeds very often
if that's what they want.

The small packs stay fresher for each and every refill they do too. Actually a strip of these "one fill" pouches would be great. Like a string of sausages if you like! Seed in layflat tubing, and just tear/cut one off as needed! That could be so neat and definitely handy! Why has that not happened before I wonder? You could make it economically viable too then.

I used a piece of plastic water pipe, cut to the height of the feeder. This gives a gap of about half inch around the edge to fill with nuts.. This means the nuts get eaten before going off. Much more economical when you haven't go a lot of bluetits etc.

Nesting material (ie wool) in a hanger. I find the tits use this a lot when building their nests.

Fat that comes in pellets

And as suggested above easier to clean perch ring feeders

I have many of your bird feeders for seed & nuts and have 2 round trays that screw on to the bases of feeders but for one I have lost the plastic screw part. Would be great if spare ones were able to be boight would save me having mess!

Hi Bird lady. Have you tried contacting CJs asking for one? I had the same problem with a guardian and feeder and CJs responded instantly and sent me a couple free of charge. An excellent service as usual.

Hi

Yes do try requesting from CJ. I've got a few replacements free of charge as they do break every now and again. I phoned once and since then when I order online, if necessary, I put the request in the "any other comments" box. Great service.
