Does anyone feed Higgins bird food? I saw some in the store and it didn't look too bad. Is it a decent brand? The nutriberries are up to $30.00 for 3.5 lbs and I am going broke. LOL Higgins sells for $17.00 for 3 lbs. I've been looking at other options. The nutriberies get very expensive when feeding 5 of them. Any feedback would be appreciated

Mine only get a bit of seed at bedtime. I did find an awesome deal on 25 lbs of the Higgins sunburst. . It came yesterday. It averaged out to a little over 2 bucks a pound ( thats including the shipping) I was very happy.  handshappy
