The Nuttery Squirrel Proof Oval Fat Ball Feeder has been designed to hold both fat balls and suet cakes - either up to 6 suet balls or a single suet block.

This robust construction feeder has been built to a high quality from durable steel and finished in a beautiful ocean green colour, the anti squirrel cage stops adult squirrels and large wild birds from reaching the suet selection inside this Nuttery bird feeder - allowing your small garden visitors to feed in safety in an area which predators cannot access.

This Ocean Green Oval feeder is easy to refill thanks to the finger holes which allows for easy removal of the inner cage, and this feeder should be cleaned regularly between uses to ensure it remains safe for visiting birds to use. Once cleaned and filled this metal bird feeder can then be hung up in your garden from a branch or hook using the fat ball feeders ocean green handle.

*A Note On Juvenile Squirrels

The Nuttery feeders can only protect against adult grey squirrels and large adult birds such as magpies, crows rooks etc, which ultimately do the most damage.  Some birds, such as a woodpecker, wont fit through the bars but could manage to get their beaks inside and access the food.

There is always a chance than an adolescent young squirrel could squeeze into the bars and access the feeder.  The young squirrels look very similar to adults but are actually far fluffier making them much more flexible!  Squirrels are normally born in March, April, July and August so there may well be a risk around these months. This is short term issue and will be the problem of any feeder that has researched the necessary bar spacing required.  You may also find that adolescent jackdaws, crows and pigeons may find their way in.  The bars on these feeders cannot be made smaller to protect from adolescent or red squirrels as this would pose a risk to the birds.

 If squirrels do manage to get into the feeders to prevent damage to the plastic tubes a a dash of chilli flakes mixed in with the nuts or seeds will have no effect on the birds at all but will deter the squirrels.

Dimensions:

H 170mm x W 220mm x D 155mm.

Please note the feeder is not supplied with a wall bracket.

    We wanted a fat ball feeder that was not accessible to starlings and magpies and this feeder has proved successful. (Posted on 09/12/2019)

    Much better than cheap ones Review by Ronald
    I tried the cheap and cheerful versions but the squirrels just devoured the balls. I like squirrels but not when eating all the bird food! After a day or so the birds became accustomed to the new feeder and came regularly to stock up their fat reserves for the winter. The wire framework is strong and seems to be powder coated rather than painted. I used a length of steel chain to suspend the feeder and a screw type chain link to attach the feeder to the chain. The feeder is made in China if that is a factor. All in all a great purchase and a worthwhile addition to my feeders. (Posted on 06/12/2019)
