Product Details

Sunflower Heart Chips are a small and mighty alternative to our Sunflower Hearts

A smaller alternative to whole Sunflower Hearts, our Sunflower Heart Chips for birds are a fantastic source of energy and protein. These little chips are perfect for small birds with soft beaks as they can break through the seed and digest it with ease.

What are Sunflower Seed Heart Chips?

At Ivel Valley Farm, we like to tailor to all garden birds and wanted to ensure the smaller species still get the best quality food. Which is why we provide Sunflower Heart Chips! Exactly the same seed as our Sunflower Hearts only cut up into smaller pieces. Their size and structure makes it more manageable for small birds with soft beaks to easily break through and digest the chip.

The Sunflower Chips contain the same nutrients, healthy oils and vitamins as Sunflower Hearts and are an excellent all-year-round feed for your garden birds. 

Sunflower Heart Chips have the added advantage of having the black husk (outer shell) removed, so there is no husk waste in your bird feeders or on the ground, giving you more for your money and an easier dining experience for the birds!

What birds eat Sunflower Heart Chips?

Birds that typically enjoy Sunflower Heart Chips tend to be smaller species with soft bills which can include: Blackbirds, Blue Tits, Chaffinches, Collard Doves, Goldfinches, Great Tits, Greenfinches, House Sparrows, Nuthatches, Robins, Siskins, Song Thrushes and Starlings.

Why are Sunflower Hearts Chips good for birds? 

Sunflower Heart Chips are packed with healthy oils, protein and has plenty of vitamins and minerals such as calcium, vitamin B and iron. It's also a great source of high energy (high calories), and thanks to the size of the small chip, it requires less energy from birds to eat and digest. Birds will benefit from it all year round at any stage of life, making it the perfect crowd pleaser!

How to feed Sunflower Heart Chips to birds?

Most bird seed feeders will be suitable to carry and distribute Sunflower Heart Chips. Alternatively, you can place the Sunflower Chips on bird tables or ground feeders so all birds can enjoy it.


Please note: The sunflower heart chips can be larger than the usual small size at certain times of the year. This is something that we, unfortunately, can not control.


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, and our cardboard boxes are also made from recycled materials.
