Hummingbird nectar-sugar&water or store bought?

iL Divo | Jun 21, 2012 06:42 AM

good morning,
hubby and I were at EmmaJeans in Victorville Ca yesterday having breakfast.
it's a place GF featured on DDD's and hubby & shooting buddies go after shooting targets in the mountains...I've never been.
EmmaJeans use several hummingbird feeders - and the number of hummingbirds that were using the feeders was so fun to watch so on the way home we stopped and bought several.

I asked what they used in the feeders to attract so many birds and they said sugar-water-coloring. hubby bought a box of HD's brand of HB nectar .
I read how to make the sugar syrup which says NO food coloring.

I just want to attract lots of hummingbirds and wonder what you use.
the sugar syrup with/without coloring or store bought.
hubby is ready to hang them all, TIA
