I’ m a non meat eater and don’t usually have lard, although I will make an exception for the birds
It’s great that you are feeding birds and care enough to ask this question. It must be difficult for you to think about using lard.
Birds do need fat. They do not need vegetable oil.
Lard or dripping is good.
Amazing Fact -
So if we put bird food out (with lard if possible) we can help birds and help them save their energy and use it to see them through the freezing winter nights
Lard is good for birds in winter. I often melt some lard. When it is melted I pour it over bird food and mix it together. This does not make a fatball – it just gives birds fat coated bird food.
My daughter is vegetarian and I understand the reasons for being vegetarian.
I am a meat eater and think that as long as an animal is looked after properly then it is OK to eat meat and use lard or dripping. There are so many hilly / upland parts of Britain that cannot grow any crops, so grazing animals is a good way to feed the Nation.
Vegetable oil is not any good
Let me know how you get on.
