    My mom also had us put our hair trimmings out for the birds. Occasionally we could put out premade chains. so I have kept the tradition of trimming my kiddos hair out side and putting the clippings out for the birds.

    Thanks for the advice. I’ve left yarn out for birds before – natural hand-spun yarns dyed with natural substances I’ve picked up at a yarn expo as well as cotton yarn from the store – but never considered that it could harm the babies, especially the manufactured dyes. Guess I stick to cat fur and bird seed. Yes, birds around here like to “dive bomb” cats and pull out some of their fur for their nests. I’ve left out the cat and dog fur after brushing (unwadded) and the birds seem to love it!

    Even though I have only ever put my 100% organic wool ends and scraps out for the birds I never thought it them not drying. We won’t be doing it any more. Thanks you for the insight.

    Hi Mikey,
    An excellent article. I didn’t realise that you were still around as I haven’t seen any notifications from The Crochet Crowd in ages.

    Thank you Mikey for this helpful and insightful info. I didn’t think of all those things. Poor helpless little creatures, we just don’t think deeply enough! I am very glad to have been informed!!
