    You can, just sparingly it is alot of fat.
    On bitter cold days though the ladies and gents here love suet.:)

    Yes, it's ok to give as a treat (not every day).
    The fat and corn supposedly help them keep warm when it's super cold out, too.

    I hung some suet in a cage so they also had the challenge of getting it out while pecking at a moving target...
