Hummingbird feeder parts | ¿I can put red food coloring in hummingbird food?

Posted By: junmar

I just got a feeder, and can make my own food to put on it. If I do four parts water and one part sugar (I found this site: http://www.wbu.com/education/hummingbirds.html) will hurt the bird if I put the dye red food there?

Red food coloring is used because it can attract hummingbirds (such as bright-colored flowers). There is no evidence that food dyes harm hummers, but if you want to be sure why not make the charger red, rather than putting in the sugar solution? This has been shown to work as well.

Hummingbirds develop different colors depending on what they eat …. red in the food, the redder of the bird, usually in the neck. However, you must take the feeder in the fall, or they lose their journey southward migration (yes, migration, “a journey” the greatest of birds like Canada geese) would otherwise be for the Food and freezing to death.

Posted By: junmar

I have a hummerbird feeder

in which I use store-bought mix. I wondered if I could do it myself, but I have no idea what to use.

One part sugar / 4 parts water kettle first, then measure and add the sugar at a rate of 1 / 4 cup sugar 1 cup fresh water.Let excess stored in the refrigerator until ready to not use. Do not add food coloring, honey (which ferments), or an artificial sweetener that has no nutritional value.You need to clean your diet daily with warm water and a solution of bleach (10% ) to inhibit mold. Rinse thoroughly before refilling with water syrup

One part sugar / 4 parts water

Boil water first, then measure and add the sugar at a rate of 1 / 4 cup water 1 cup sugar.

Cool and refrigerate until ready to use excess.

Do not add food coloring, honey (which ferments), or an artificial sweetener that has no nutritional value.

You will need to clean up your diet every day with warm water and mild bleach (10%) to inhibit mold. Rinse thoroughly before refilling with water syrup

1 cup sugar and 5-6 drops of red food coloring. Fill it with water and watch them come. They like the color red.

Do not spend money on groceries hummingbird.

They like sugar and good old water. A cup of Suger, 2 cups water, bring to a boil and allow to cool to room temperature. Boiling help prevent its spread in the magazine.

Hummingbird food is just sugar water with red color. There is a recipe for that and I can not find mine. However, you can go to Google and found that I’m sure. I have my recipe for an Amish friend. I hope you have helped.

Sugar Part 1 to 4 colors parts water for food is not necessary as there are colors on the bird feeders. anyway just boil the sugar and water until sugar is dissolved, cool and power. if you use store-bought mix to check to see if you need to add sugar, most do!

Sugar part 1 to 4 parts water, mixed together.
