*A Note On Juvenile Squirrels and birds
The Nuttery squirrel proof feeders protect against adult grey squirrels and large adult birds. Some large birds wont be able fit their body through the bars of the feeder but could be able to get their beaks inside the feeder to access the food.
Young squirrels can potentially squeeze into the bars and access the feeder. Young squirrels look very similar to adults but are far fluffier and more flexible! Squirrels are born in March, April, July and August so there may well be a risk around these months. This issue will be the problem of any squirrel proof feeder with bars. The bar gaps cannot be made smaller as this could be a risk for the birds. You may also find that young jackdaws, crows and pigeons may find their way in, again this is a seasonal problem.
A dash of chilli flakes mixed in with the nuts or seeds will have no effect on the birds at all but will deter the squirrels if they do manage to access the feeder inside.
