    As far as I know, feeding fat to your birds isn't a problem. Just make sure the fat hasn't become rancid/rotten, and don't overfeed it. Moderation is the key.

    Good luck with birds!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I tried giving my birds a tiny bit of suet once and it caused small impactions in the crop. So just be careful when using fat.

    Good luck with your flock and welcome to ours!

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined us.

    I think that it would be fine in moderation. I've given my birds small parts of bird suet cakes, with no ill effects.
