Using bird peanuts as wild bird food
Red or pale skinned peanuts, size 70/80 nuts per ounce. Extra rich in essential oils, thus making an excellent food for all year feeding. Peanuts are suitable and liked by most species of birds including tits, finches, woodpeckers, starlings and many more.
Suitable for feeding in hanging wire feeders all year round. To avoid the chance of fledglings choking, avoid whole peanuts on bird tables, trays and ground feeders during nesting
Will bird nuts attract more birds to my garden?
If using peanuts as bird food for the first time, don’t be discouraged if you don’t get birds straight away. Just tell yourself it will be worth the wait when you see a variety of different birds visiting.
Adding peanuts will be a welcome addition to your backyard buffet and you could see a whole host of new varieties of wildlife paying you a visit.
Why should you put out bird nuts?
Peanuts are perfect for year round feeding but are especially welcome for wild birds in winter. Our peanuts are full of protein and fat that will help keep your garden birds healthy and strong no matter the season. Peanuts are also abundant in the vitamins niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, thiamin, riboflavin, choline, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E and rich in minerals like magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese and selenium. Just like humans, bird’s need a full range of vitamins to stay in optimal health.
Are all Peanuts the same?
The short answer is no. Unfortunately, Aflatoxins are a family of toxins produced by certain fungi that can be found growing on peanuts. If ingested, these toxins are incredibly harmful to all birds. Thankfully, you’ll be relieved to know that all our peanuts are certified as nil for detectable signs of aflatoxin. This means you can rest assured that they are completely safe for your birds to eat all year round.
