Ark Wildlife & Kennedy Wild Bird Food - What’s the Difference?

Peter McNish

In our last bird food comparison article, we looked at the difference between well-known bird seed supplier, CJ Wildlife. When we broke these prices down, it showed some pretty eye-opening results.

Our Wild Bird Food Policy

We want our customers to receive the best bird seed for the lowest prices. It’s your consumer right to know how much other bird seed suppliers are charging for similar products. At Kennedy Wild Bird Food we provide high-quality, low priced locally grown bird seed. This is so you know you are getting the best deal possible. This comparison will be looking at another well-known bird seed supplier, Ark Wildlife.

Ark Wildlife Premium Sunflower Hearts - Nearly £6 more expensive per 25Kg bag compared with Kennedy Wild Bird Food.

Arguably the ultimate bird seed, sunflower hearts are immensely popular with our feathered friends. Not only are they rich in oil, energy and protein, but they are husk-free, meaning they are mess-free too!

However, paying over the odds won’t make you happy. At £1.68 per kg at Ark Wildlife, you are actually paying over 20p more than if you were to purchase with Kennedy. Adding all of that together, over 25kg means you're paying over £6 extra. I know which one I’d peck!

Ark Wildlife Classic Peanuts - Cheap, but £7.50 more expensive per 25kg than Kennedy Wild Bird Food

In recent years, peanuts have become a staple of our birds’ diet. As another bird food with all the essential oils and protein, many bird food suppliers have begun bumping up the prices of their peanuts. Not at Kennedy; we are one of the only bird food suppliers who keep our peanuts below £2.00 a kg. At £1.72, we are 18p cheaper per kg than Ark Wildlife.

Ark Wildlife Niger Seed - £12 more expensive per 25kg than Kennedy Wild Bird Food

Niger seed is a tasty treat beloved by goldfinches, greenfinches and siskins, but it can also be incredibly pricey. At £1.62 per kg, you will quickly find Kennedy has some of the cheapest niger seed on the internet, at over 40p cheaper per kg than Ark Wildlife. Make sure you read our niger seed guide here.

Ark Wildlife Won’t Grow Mixture - Over £5 more expensive per 25kg than Kennedy Wild Bird Food

One of the great benefits about won’t grow mixture is that it does exactly what it says on the pack; it won’t grow in your garden! This makes it an attractive proposition for those who love birdwatching, but like to keep their garden nice and tidy. This doesn’t mean you have to pay over the odds though. At £1.49 per kg, Kennedy is much cheaper than any of our competitors, including Ark Wildlife, who charge £1.68 per kg.

Ark Wildlife Ground Feed Mixture - £9 more expensive per 25Kg than Kennedy Wild Bird Food

Ground Feed Mixture is great for those who don’t have any space for bird feeders in their garden, or simply don’t want one. It gives everyone a chance to feed the birds that visit and can be spread across a table or any surface for that matter. At £1.29 per kg, Kennedy once again is a mile cheaper than other popular bird food suppliers such as Ark Wildlife, who charge £1.60 per kg!
