A: First thing... Winter is the time I use Suet Baskets... Make your own. My birds will not eat the store ones. Summer does not work well if you are using animal fat because it spoils. Beef fat is best if the temperatures during the day get much above freezing. The reason is that it takes warmer temperature than, say pork fat, to melt. That means it does not melt and fall apart on warm days as easily. Make your own suet by getting waste beef trimmings from your grocer. Melt the fat in a large pot. Take what does not melt and chop it up in a cuisinart with a bit of bread and/or corn meal. There are a dozen, or more, recipes online. But I add peanut butter, unsalted nuts, dried fruit, dried worms and bird seed. Mix, pour fat into flat glass bowls (whatever you have that works), add whatever, and put in your freezer overnight. The next day, put 1-2 inches of warm water at the bottom of your kitchen sink and in five minutes, or less, you can turn them upside-down onto wax paper. Wrap them individually in wax paper and store in a plastic bag in the freezer until they are needed. Your backyard will be full of birds, and they will love you for it.
A: Online or in store
A: They sell a few varieties at Home Depot. A large superstore which is prevalent everywhere (which I probably cannot name here) has MANY varieties of suet cakes at less than $1 per. I saw at least 10 varieties there just this week.
