Seed Cylinders

Why Use cylinders?

Our store carries a variety of seed cylinders and a variety of feeders that support this unique method of serving food to the birds.  These seed cylinders are held together by a gelatin that is not dissolved in water so rain is not an issue.  Birds take the seeds off the cylinder  in very small quantities so waste is minimized.  For that  same reason the cylinders last longer that a similar quantity of loose seed.  It is a superior method of feeding the birds!
