If a lot of birds are coming to feed in your yard, you need to consider buying cheap wild bird food. However, cheap food might sometime mean bad quality. So, it is important to check the ingredients before going for the cheap seed mix. Cheap mixes might not have enough vitamins and minerals for the birds you are feeding. Sometimes your feeders become the only source of food for birds, especially in the winter. So, it is important to make the food as wholesome as possible.
Cheap wild bird seed can be purchased wholesale. This will definitely save you some money as well as time. If you have a place to store the food, it would be a good idea to buy a lot of it in order not to bother with ordering it too often. However, it is important to store the bird seed properly. Remember, that the bird seed is afraid of moisture. If some moisture gets into the bags with seed, it will be ruined. Always check the bags for mold and bad smells before giving the food to the birds. The birds might not understand that the food has gone bad and will become ill after eating it.
Cheapest bird food is usually low in quality. But sometimes even such food will save the birds from hunger in the winter. So, if you don’t have a chance to buy high quality and more expensive food, you can still buy the cheapest one you can to keep the birds fed. Make sure to provide birds with enough water after feeding, so they can digest the food properly. Overall, any food you give the wild birds will do, as long as it is fresh and has been stored properly. More expensive bird food can be less messy, since birds will not be throwing much of it out of the feeders.
