Nyjer Seed

Niger Seeds, though small and fine, are one of the most fundamental feeds for birds. They are full of essential oils, fat and protein and are essential for a well balanced diet. They are suitable for all bird varieties, although they are favoured by GoldFinches, Siskins and Redpolls.

They are native to Ethiopia and derive from the Ramtil Plant and are sometimes referred to as Nyger or Thistle Seeds. They are closely related to Sunflower Seeds and boast all of the benefits that plant based seeds provide.

Due to the size and constancy of Niger seeds, it is best if they are fed from a specialised Niger Seed feeder. Many of these feeders include trays also to catch any seeds that do spill to reduce waste and mess.
