Does anyone have a favorite home made recipe for humming bird feeders??

 I'll goggle it later... but didn't know if you all had a tried and true formula.

Thanks... hope everyone is having a good day ;o)

  • 1 part sugar to 4 parts boiled water.
    Boil the water - Helps removed the impurties of chlorine from the water -
    Add the sugar - cool in fridge.

  • Nope, color does not attract the humming birds.

  • Ohhh that's awesome!! Thank you so much! I don't need color either way, the feeders have their own color. ;o) This is so cool!!

  • I make it the same way, except I do add red food coloring because the color attracts them. :)
