can i use unsalted nuts chopped up as i have a lot of almonds and hazelnuts
Beef dripping is much better than lard - lard is too greasy and birds wipe their beaks on their feathers and that damages the insulation qualities and can cause real problems.
...I tend to mix in the little bits of cereal remaining in the bottom of the packet - as long as it's not too sugary. Beef dripping from grilled burgers (yes, sometimes ), fat from grilled bangers etc.
Dove, thanks for that information. I can't buy lard or suet here and had given up on the idea of making seed balls.(not that they need extra feed at the moment - there is grass seeding everywhere, here.) HRH has a continual battle with seeds getting caught in her coat.
