Making suet for the birds

I wanted to make my own suet just because I have never done it before.

All you need is:

Lard 1/2 cup per suet cake

Bird Seed we had chicken scratch its a good mix

Black Oiled Sunflower Seeds

Oatmeal

Cornmeal

You could cut up some apple in small pieces and add it if you want to.

I used a round meal prep container for a mold but anything plastic would work out great.

We had to buy some lard I have never bought it before everything else we had.

Melting the lard in the meal prep container in the microwave took about 45 seconds but I stirred it a few times.

As far as the quantities of the dry ingredients I just guessed it but used more sunflower seeds.

Combine dry ingredients in a container for mixing then add to the lard stir until all is moistened compact it down with a spoon and freeze.

That is all there is to it.

My Suet holders are HUGE and I guess if you wanted to you could find a deep square container to use for this. Suet spoils in our heat so I figured smaller was better.

Crickets Birthday

We took Miss Cricket to Petsmart they moved the scale off the floor and up on a platform that is the dumbest thing I have ever seen.

She did not want to weigh her butt was off the scale then her foot finally she was all on the scale and she weighed 145#s. She is quite the whopper.

For some reason on my post about Cricket I got off on her age today she is 1 – year old just a pup at 145#s.

Cricket is a slobber dog and this pic shows what happens after a few rounds of fetch.
