WBU No-Mess Plus Blend: Calcium for Nesting Birds, No Mess for You

WBU No-Mess Plus Blend: Calcium for Nesting Birds, No Mess for You
Compared to other blends, our No-Mess Plus Blend provides a more balanced nutritional offering at feeding stations to meet the needs of nesting birds and increase the frequency of visits to feeders. Not only does it provide much needed supplemental energy for the high demands of the nesting season, but also the added calcium is the perfect ingredient to help strengthen egg shells for nesting birds and an essential building block as baby birds grow.

Calcium is the most challenging mineral for birds because when they need it in their diet they need large quantities and they need it right away. This is mainly during nesting time for egg laying as well as chick development. The amount of calcium in their natural diet of seeds and insects is often inadequate and they must seek calcium-rich foods as a supplement. Our No-Mess Plus Blend offers them the much-needed calcium and it does it all with no shells so it is a wonderful no mess option for you.

Watch for increased evening feeder activity by female birds as they consume concentrated calcium sources to form an egg overnight to lay the next day. Also, offering No-Mess Plus Blend makes it more likely that you will see fledgling birds at their feeders later this spring as they learn to feed themselves.

Each of our blends is locally selected to meet the regional and seasonal needs of the birds. We do not include filler grains like oats, wheat and milo that decrease the price per pound of a mix, because these filler seeds are less attractive (or not attractive) to birds. Because there is no wasted seed, our blends actually end up costing less to use while attracting more of the birds that you want to watch
