What Our Customers Are Saying…
Until recently we had been using regular store bought bird seed in our feeder and very few birds were feeding there. A few days after we put Cole's Blue Ribbon Blend in the feeder there were so many birds we needed an air traffic controller! Dianne and Art Damiano, Marietta, GA
My wife and I recently got a bird feeder and a bag of your Blue Ribbon Blend seed. We soon enjoyed a large number and variety of birds in our backyard. When that bag ran out, I unfortunately tried to save some money and bought some seed from one of the grass seed companies. We soon saw a large drop in number and variety of our feathered friends. We went and got another bag of Blue Ribbon today!!! Chris Fielding, Dallas, GA
Thanks for such a wonderful product that produces no waste. My yard is a symphony for the entire neighborhood as it attracts many birds we would not normally see or hear! Kim, Stone Mountain, GA
I have never had much luck attracting birds to my yard until I started making my own blend with Cole’s. Now, I have no waste, a steady flow of beautiful regulars, plus some nifty visitors like a rose-breasted grosbeak today! Thanks Cole’s! Denise Smith, Kennesaw, GA
Best prices around! Cole’s is second to none! Joey, Scottsdale, AZ
I found your dried mealworms at Dewayne’s in Smithfield and they were the greatest things. The bluebirds love them and they are so much easier than live ones. Carla, Clayton, NC
I have just now discovered your wonderful product at a local plant nursery. The birds LOVE IT! I have seen a wider variety of birds at my feeders this year than I can remember and I only purchased the oil sunflower as I wanted to use up what I had bought at a large home improvement retailer. I just finished the last of the seed, so off to Lindleys in the am to get a variety of different flavors they offer for sale. Great product. Laura, Edgewater, FL
I buy Critter Munchies and I love the drawing on the bag…it calls attention to their needs! Barbara Metzler, NJ
I could not believe the bird response I received with your product. . . Rita,
I tried Cole’s bird seed for the first time in my bird feeder last year. When I ran out, I bought another brand at a large retailer. Not only did the birds I had seen eating the Cole’s not eat the other brand, the other one actually molded in the bird feeder! I dumped the whole bag in the woods and immediately bought more Cole’s. Now I can sit in my kitchen and watch all the beautiful birds again. If only I didn’t have to refill the feeder every three days Thanks for such a great product. Kelly McClellan,
I am looking forward to using your products. My neighbor is getting all the attention from beautiful birds and I get none. Pat Shorter, Marlton, NJ
The chickadees, brown-headed & white-breasted nuthatches, red-bellied woodpeckers, cardinals, doves, carolina wrens all enjoy it immensely, and it is comforting to be able to stand at that back window and watch the show. Thanks for the great product!
Woody, Decatur, GA
I know what the ingredients are listed on the bag, what I want to know is; what is the secret stuff, you know the thing that makes them fight each other to get some. I have Mourning Doves that line up six deep to get their share, and the Woodpeckers have gone nuts!
Joe Tays, Buford, GA
I just bought my first bag of your seed at Whole Foods. I purchased the Hot Meats. I just put it in one of my feeders and it is now covered with birds. I have two other feeders and they obviously prefer the Hot Meats. I am enjoying watching them. As soon as another feeder empties I will try a bag of your Nutberry Suet Blend. I’m sure I’ll have the same result. Thank you Marianne, Bryn Mawr, PA
I love Cole’s Bird Seed! I decided that I would try the “Blue Ribbon Blend” to satisfy my titmice and chickadees. Come to find out, not only did my titmice and chickadees love it, but also my red-bellied woodpecker who only comes to my feeder when it is filled with this seed! Thank you, Cole’s, from me and my birdy friends!
Joseph, Fuquay-Varina, NC
We have been purchasing Cole’s bird seed mixes for a goodly number of years. We started a few years ago using only the Special Feeder mix. We had been told that larger woodpeckers would not come to small feeders and that bluebirds would not come either. Wrong on both counts. We have such a riot of color some days it is truly amazing and we use smaller feeders which hang off our deck rail as well as larger ones in the yard. When the feeders run out, the bird sit out there singing away for their supper – in other words – fill the feeders please. We have been happy with Cole’s and will pay the premium price because the product is simply the best. With Special Feeder mix we have very little mess on the ground and our birds are happy. Way to go Cole’s!
Harriette Majoros, Marietta, GA
My backyard bluebirds bring their babies to my Hot Meats feeders. The little, spotty, uncertain babies hold tight to the shepherd’s crook above the feeder, while the parent, generally Dad hops down, gathers seed, and feeds the young fledglings. The parents and babies will do this for 2-3 days, then the parents will hop down on the feeder and wait for the babies to learn to jump down and feed themselves. It is my favorite bird watching activity!
Margaret Watkins, Tucker, GA
I recently got into the joys of birdfeeding about 3 months ago. Since them I acquired some squirrel problems as well. I was told by my local bird store (Wild Birds Unlimited) that Coles Hot Meats bird seed would keep them out of my tube feeders! I have been using this stuff for months now and let me tell you something people, it works! That bird seed is the best...yes you may say its a little pricy but its actually cheaper than buying the possibly less expensive birdfeed, especially if you have squirrel problems, because we all know how fast squirrels can run thru your bird food, even tube feeders! The squirrels dont even touch the feeders now. No scratching on them or chewing off the little plastic perch covers that go on them anymore! Thanks Coles you guys are great! Im going to try the hot suet cakes here pretty soon for the winter as well! Jeremy Bock, Cary, NC
For the past 15 years I have been fighting an expensive and losing battle with squirrels. They have outmaneuvered all my expensive bird feeders. One of the salesmen at my hardware store recommended Cole's Hot Meats. Having tried pepper before, I was not hopeful but finally tried it a week ago. Since then the squirrels have avoided the feeder as well as the food dropped under it; the birds are loving it and I'm unable to count all the warblers, gold finches, chickadees, titmice, etc. who are frequenting the feeder. I have recommended it to my friends on FB- you should be having an increase in business!! Joan McAllister, Raleigh, NC
