Nyger Seed

BRAND: Ivel Valley Bird Food

The UK's favourite bird seed for attracting small, beautiful birds to your garden. Nyger Seeds (also known as Niger Seeds or Thistle 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.

Use Nyger Seed to attract Goldfinches to your garden 

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 most popular 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.


Packaging: 2kg bags of seed are oxo-biodegradable and can be disposed of alongside normal recycled plastics. 12.55kg seed options come in a fully recyclable paper sack. 2kg bags of suet products are recyclable plastic. 12.55kg and 20kg pellets come in a recyclable plastic liner inside a box. The liner is to protect the box, it is not a carry sack and should not be pulled out of the box. Our cardboard boxes are also made from recycled materials and our gum tape is also recyclable.
