How to Make Fat Balls for Birds?


In making bird fat balls, you have to place a lollipop stick that corresponds to the basal size of the yoghurt pot. The yoghurt pot will act as a mold for the bird feeds. The stick should have a string tied to the middle and push it to the bottom part with the string hanging out. Place solid animal fat in a bowl and mix it together with your choice of ingredients such as oatmeal, breadcrumbs, cranberries, raisins, wild bird seeds, dried fruits, nuts, cheese, and finely chopped fruits. Push the mixture to the base of the yoghurt pot ensuring that the string is still hanging out of the pot. When the mixture has set, remove it from the mold and hang it in your garden.

To make fat balls for birds, mix seeds, nuts, dried fruit, oatmeal, cheese, and cake in a bowl. Add melted fat (suet or lard) into the mixture and stir well. Allow it to settle in a container of your choice, like an empty coconut shell, plastic cup or tit bell. Alternatively, you may turn it on the birdtable when solid.
Bird fat balls are very easy to make. It is just a matter of mixing nuts, fruit, and scraps and shaping them into a ball. Cover the balls in saran wrap or aluminum foil and place in the freezer. Once the balls harden, you may put them out for the birds to feed on.
