The A-6 Seed tray adds value to your bird feeder.

Adding a seed try to a bird feeder helps to get the most out of feeding wild birds. The 7.5 in. A-6 seed tray saves spilled seed, while also helping to attract a larger variety of birds. Adding a seed tray turns a tubular bird feeder into a platform feeder that will attract more species, like ground feeding birds. Its UV stabilized polycarbonate construction is dependably durable. The tray attaches with the included threaded black plug – no tools needed! This tray fits Droll Yankees’ Classic, New Generation®, Ring Pull, and Bird Lovers® feeders.

  • 7.5″ Platform attracts a wide variety of birds, including ground feeders like Cardinals
  • Catches spilled seed and saves money!
  • Fits Droll Yankees’ Classic, New Generation, Ring Pull, and Bird Lovers feeders
  • No tools needed – connect the A-6 Seed Tray to the feeder base with the included threaded black plug

  • Substitute a Wing Nut for the threaded black plug for easier tray removal

The A-6 Seed Tray Saves money by catching spilled seed.

Attaching the A-6 seed tray to your bird feeder will save money by catching spilled seed and also attract a wider variety of feeder birds. Seed trays act as a platform and offer the sure footing that ground feeding birds, like Cardinals, prefer. These birds will be more likely to linger at a feeder for longer when they have a secure place to perch, affording great bird watching opportunities. By catching spilled seed, the A-6 Seed Tray will also reduce waste from discarded, uneaten seed and prevent accumulation that could attract unwanted pests.

Feeding wild birds is one of the best ways to impact the world around you. The simple act of putting out a bird feeder and keeping it clean and full can greatly improve the chances that birds and their offspring will survive. Many backyard bird watchers believe that birds only benefit from feeders during certain times of the year. However, birds actually have a year-round need for reliable, steady food sources.

Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush to brush away grime inside the tube.

    This is a good quality seed tray that I use with my New Generation type feeders. I also recommend a Wing Nut for easier attachment and removal. If you’ve got squirrel problems, It does seem to attract them more because of the added perching space.

      Hello Chris,
      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. I am sorry that you’re having no success at all deterring squirrels from your seed tray. Squirrels are so clever and relentless and it seems sometimes that they’re smarter than most other animals. One of the biggest challenges to feeding wild birds—our own challenge too—is deterring squirrels. We work on a daily basis to create quality products and cultivate good advice that will help us all win this fight.

      I can completely sympathize with your squirrel frustration. My goal is to help restore your faith in our products by offering you some squirrel-proof advice. The key to successfully keeping a feeder squirrel-proof is its placement. Squirrels are agile and are able to jump up to 8ft horizontally and 4ft vertically. For this reason, we recommend that feeders be placed 8ft away from any structures that they can climb on, so that they do not reach across to access the feeding holes. It can be helpful to trim back and prune any nearby bushes or branches within 12ft of a feeder. We also recommend that feeders be placed higher than 4ft off the ground, preventing the squirrels from jumping and grabbing onto the bottom. If you are using a hook or pole, we recommend that the hook have at least a 16in distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success.

      If you make sure to properly place any of our squirrel-proof feeders, I am confident that you will start having success in deterring the squirrels. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7:30am – 4:30pm (Mon-Thurs) & 7:30am – 2pm (Fri) EST. We hope this helps you get back to feeding birds and thwarting squirrels!

    You have to keep a check on it but this saves a lot of small seed that are knocked out when the birds are feeding that the birds come back and pick up later. I have paired this with my DY tube feeders. I highly recommend this upgrade to any of the tube feeders like the TS-40220 that I have just ordered.
