All about Attracting Orioles
Attracting orioles to your backyard is relatively easy provided you follow a few tips that have proven to be successful.

Orioles begin arriving across the middle United States about April 25th. Timing is very important when trying to attract them to various feeders. Migrating at night they are normally cold, tired and hungry upon their arrival. This is why timing is so important and the feeders should be ready before they migrate back. It is wise to put the feeders out approximately one week prior to their average arrival time. To do so after you see them in your yard may take a little more time to entice them to the more

Friendly Bird Feeders
Although the durability and natural look of cedar bird feeders continue to be preferred, the new line of feeders made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic is gaining in popularity. Many of these bird feeders have a lifetime warranty against fading, pealing, cracking, and chipping. They clean up like brand new, even after years of use. And speak of easy cleaning, many of the cedar and recycled plastic feeders we stock have removable perforated steel bottoms. This also allows moisture to pass through and the seed to remain dry.
Made in the USA
Great time to buy a new bird feeder as you get ready for spring and summer bird feeding. Maybe add a new type of bird feeder for summer. What kind of bird feeder might you want to add to your backyard? Find out at

The Dangers of Rawhide Dog Chews
Most rawhide chews are produced in China and Taiwan using toxic mixtures of sodium sulphide, hydrogen peroxide and bleach, titanium oxide, carcinogenic dyes, and preservatives like sodium benzoate. Lead, arsenic, mercury, chromium salts, formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals have been detected in rawhide dog chews.
Rawhide bones and dog chews can pose a choking or blockage risk for dogs, If your dog swallows pieces of rawhide, it can get stuck in the esophagus or other parts of the digestive tract and often requires surgical removal.
Now there’s NO-HIDE® DOG CHEWS, a healthy alternative to rawhide dog chews. 100% rawhide free, made with all natural, human grade meat proteins, cooked, dried, and rolled for a longer lasting chewing experience that promotes healthy teeth and gums. Fully digestible. A safe alternative to dangerous rawhide dog chews.
 Available in peanut butter, beef, venison, chicken, pork, and salmon
