What on earth are we talking about?!
Well, what we are saying is that although you can buy fatballs from many places these days, not all fatballs are what they are made out to be! Whenever bird food is manufactured and brought into the shops you would expect it to be only the best ingredients and, exactly what you would expect in a fatball is usually two ingredients i.e. seeds or some kind of additional food covered in a good dose of tallow.
However, it is well known in the bird food industry that some 'cheap' fatballs are not what you would call great! What I'm saying is that some fatballs can, and indeed, do have up to 20% filling agent in them - which can be anything from sand, dust or grit!
Now I don't like the idea of being ripped-off by some unscrupulous manufacturer, but more importantly for me is the fact I would be feeding that poor quality food to my garden birds - and that just won't do! It's not fair on you or our feathered friends.
That's why we only supply the very best quality fatballs to our customers, and we only supply net-free, too, as they won't harm wild birds by getting caught round their legs or damage their tongues. Our fatballs are a mix of bird seeds with a generous coating of high quality tallow.
Only the very best for our feathered friends (and customers).
