Split peanuts for birds
Split peanut bird nuts are blanched (skins removed), halved peanuts. They make excellent and essential food for all year feeding.
Bird nuts are one of the UK’s favourite foods to feed our wild garden birds and other wildlife. Popular with both fledglings and adult birds, peanuts are packed with protein and healthy oils which makes them a high energy feed loved by all species of birds. These peanuts are suitable for feeding in hanging wire peanut feeders all year round and from bird tables, trays and ground feeders.
All of our peanuts are certified as nil detectable signs of aflatoxin. Always ensure water is available. Price includes VAT where applicable and free next day delivery.
