pinecones

I have pinecones in the tree in my front yard. Somewhere I read how to make them safe for birds but can't find it. I think it was about washing in apple vinegar and cooking. Does anybody know anything about this?

I've never heard of this. I'm sure if you could really clean them up with warm water though they would surely be okay? I haven't a clue though, I'd like to found out too though now as there are tons around my area.

Well I washed them in apple cider vinegar and rinsed them good. Then I put them in a 225 degree oven for about half an hour and then left them in there to let them dry good. Then I put some honey on them and rolled them in seeds. None of the birds have touched them. They all seem to be afraid of them. Don't know if it will work for my fids. But it was still a good idea.
