Yorkies eating wild bird seeds

    Hello everyone!

    My question today refers to backyard bird feeding... My Yorkies, of course put everything in their mouths, but they have taken a special interest in the bird seeds that fall onto the ground.

    Their 2 favorite things to eat in our backyard is mulch, and bird seeds.

    We have a good sized fenced backyard with cobblestone patio, but my husband created flower beds around the entire perimeter, and they are constantly swallowing mulch, which I'm no longer too concerned about, because their vet kinda laughed it off when I told her, but should I be concerned with the wild bird seeds?

    I talked my husband into relocating his flower beds, and sodding that area, but it will be a couple of weeks before that's complete.

    I don't want to stop feeding the birds, because that also gives me joy in watching them in my backyard. Any suggestions?

    I don't know abuout wild bird seed but Rocky always gets into the seed shells my budgies throw out of their cages and it doesn't seem to make him sick or anything.

    :lol: You know Yorkies, if someone else has it they have to have it too! :lol:

    figgy, I've fed birds and had peek-a-poos for 35 years,and bird seed comes out in about the same condition as it goes in. Maybe they get some fiber benefit. I have moved my birdfeeders to the front, only because in Oklahoma we have Starlings that carry Salmonella. By the way, your yard sounds georgous. In my next life I'm definatly going to marry a man that likes yard work.

    And thanks for the compliment Peek-A-PooPal, I am very Blessed with a gardener for a husband... If it were left up to me, nothing would grow back there so I kinda get to sit back and enjoy the fruits of his labor with him :wink:

    I wont worry about the seeds, thanks again :D
