Description

Details

Nyger Seed, also known as Niger, Nyjer or Thistle Seed, is an oil-rich seed found in Africa, India, and some parts of southeast Asia. In those parts of the world it is predominantly used in cooking but here in the UK we've found a different use for these little seeds - bird feeding!

 

Nyger Seeds are high in healthy oils, proteins and fibre, making them an ideal seed for a variety of birds, particularly in the winter when birds need to pile on the pounds to help them through the cold nights. The soft husks around Nyger Seeds makes them easy to crack through so soft billed birds like Goldfinches, Greenfinches and Thrushes will appreciate a peck at these seeds. 

 

However, Nyger Seeds are most famous in the UK for attracting birds in the Finch and Tit families, as well as Siskins, Doves and Redpolls (if you're lucky enough to see them). Here on our farm we see an abundance of Goldfinches and Blue Tits around our Nyger feeders. Specialised feeders have been designed to accommodate the tiny size of the Nyger Seeds which means that only birds with the tiniest of beaks can get to them. This is great if you're looking to exclude larger or more common birds (like Pigeons or Magpies) from feeding in your garden.

 

An added bonus of the Nyger Seed is that they are non-sprouting/no-grow, which means you don't need to worry about the odd stray seed dropping on the floor and growing unwanted plants in your garden. (However, we would still recommend using a tray under your feeder to catch the husks. It's quite the clean-up task otherwise!)

 

Packaging: Our 2kg and 6kg options come in a fully recyclable plastic bag. Our 12.55kg option comes in a fully recyclable plastic liner inside a cardboard box. Our cardboard boxes are also made from recycled materials and our gum tape and labels are all recyclable. Please note, the plastic liner is to protect the seed in the box only and is not a carry sack. Do not attempt to pull the plastic liner out of the box.

Very prompt service. Goods well packed. Good quality product which birds seem to like. Anything thrown from the feeder by choosy individuals is quickly eaten on the ground by dunnocks and pigeons.

Birds love your super suet balls. We have two feeding stations in the garden, and we derive great pleasure from watching bluetits,coal tits , great tits,nuthatches, woodpeckers and robins, with dunnets and blackbirds vying for the crumbs on the ground. ( We are quite elderly, so will continue to choose your product over other cheaper, but inferior, brands, as long as we can ).Eric Hepworth, Yorks
