Why are Peanuts good for birds?
Peanuts contain a perfect balance of nutrients being composed of 45% fat, and 24% protein. Birds need extra essential fats and proteins to stay warm over the bleak winter months in preparation for nesting in spring. Peanuts are perfect for birds that like to create caches of food, such as nuthatches or crows.
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.
How to feed Peanuts to your birds
Peanut feeders have larger mesh holes compared to regular seed feeders. This allows birds to access their food easily. Peanuts don’t germinate like some other seeds so they make a no mess, no fuss meal. Whole peanuts can be easily crushed and used in seed feeders for smaller birds to access. They can also be used as ground feed.
