Is organic milk more attractive to wildlife?

Had a doorstep milk delivery from Dairy Crest this morning. Didn't ask for one but that seems to be the way this service has gone since Co-Op sold it.

As you will see from the picture, birds nr something removed 3 out of 4 lids on the bottles to get at the milk. Didn't used to happen when we got regular full fat and semi-skimmed.

Silver and red-silver lids then and now they are green-silver for organic. Is this colour more attractive to birds I wonder?

Either way, at these prices and with a family we cannot afford to share most of our milk with them.

Any ideas to stop milk bottles getting pecked that won't harm the birds will be gratefully received. Please leave a comment.
