Our original design wild bird feeders are hand cast from original design molds we make in our studio.
We use the finest terra-cotta slip and non-toxic glazes for all our wild bird feeders and houses. The glazes are food safe and the feeders are non-toxic.
The hanger rope is 3/16″ UV resistant nylon double braided for long service.
All of the terra-cotta wild bird feeders can and should be cleaned with a 9 to 1 solution of water and chlorine bleach.
The seed feeders have a drain hole in the bottom to prevent water from accumulating and the glazed top helps keep the seed dry.
We fire the bird feeders to a high temperature so they can withstand our -30°F to -40°F northern winters.
High firing keeps the water from penetrating the terra-cotta so the feeders are not damaged by freezing like other cheaper types.
A hungry or destructive squirrel would surely blunt his teeth if he were to try chewing these wild bird feeders.
It’s perfectly fine to hang this style feeder from a shepherds hook. Just make sure the cord is not so long that the feeder can hit the hook in a strong wind.
Don’t be surprised if one very cold morning you find a roosting bird inside, trying to escape the weather.
