Our Hearty Delight® wild bird food blend is perfect for bird lovers who want an abundance of various song bird species with absolutely no waste. A blend of sunflower hearts and chips in various sizes, specially hulled white millet, peanut kernels, Nyjer seed and cracked corn are all vacuum cleaned for a clean, filler-free product.
Known as sunflower hearts or sunflower chips, these seeds are a superior source of fat, fiber, protein, and vitamins, providing excellent nutrition for all birds. Even small birds like the finch can feed on this type of sunflower being that there is no hard shell to break open. This conserves their energy, especially important in the cold winter months. Also, the consumer is not paying for the weight of sunflower shells which will only be discarded by the birds.
Hulled millet is a favorite with ground-feeding birds including quails, native American sparrows, doves, towhees, juncos, and cardinals. Hulled white millet provides essential nutrition to backyard birds such as vitamin B, protein, and magnesium. This product has no shell which means no-mess!
Because peanuts are high in fat, they are an excellent source of energy and calories, especially in cooler conditions. They're ideal for birds to tuck away and store for another day. No matter what types of peanuts or peanut products you feed your backyard birds, you’re actually offering them a very nutritional treat.
Though it is not related to the thistle plant, Nyjer is often referred to casually as "thistle seed." High in oil, it is a nutritious source of energy for backyard birds and is one of the most popular types of birdseed. This tiny black seed comes from the African Yellow Daisy flower which is often imported from India. It will not germinate as required by US regulation which prevents weed invasion.
While cracked corn does not have a high oil percentage, it is rich in both protein and fiber and is an supplemental food for energy.
