    Mix a cup of sugar into 4 cups of water until dissolved, let cool completely and fill feeder. You don't need any coloring, you feeder is most. likely already red or brightly colored.

    equal amounts of sugar and water. You can make the amount you need. The more birds the more you nee.

    I add 2 parts water to one part sugar in a small pot, let it heat up until the sugar is dissolved, then let it cool. Add the cooled sugar water to your hummingbird feeder and refrigerate the rest.

    Boil the water first, then add the sugar. It is better for the birds.

    DO NOT use the red dye that you find in the stores along side the bird feeders. It is not good for the hummingbirds. Boil 4 cups of water, take off heat and stir in and dissolve the 1 cup of sugar in the water, stirring all the while. Let it cool, pour into feeder. Any left over store in refrig up to a week. Allow to come to room temp before adding to feeder. So easy and the little hummers love it.
