Using sour cream as a suet substitute for birdseed?
I work in a dairy plant, and see a lot of perfectly good product thrown away in the course of daily testing. My boss already lets me take home pounds of yogurt and cottage cheese daily to feed to my flock of chickens (they love dairy), but I haven't found a use for sour cream yet. Since it's so high in fat content, I thought that perhaps it could be used like suet for bird feeding. Now that the temperatures around here are finally dropping below freezing, I was wondering if it would be possible to mix a lot of birdseed with a container of sour cream and solidify it in the shape of a log to hang outside for the winter.
