About Johnston & Jeff Niger Seed 6.4kg

A firm favourite among small finches (especially Goldfinches), siskins and tits, Johnston & Jeff Niger Seed is a superb little seed for feeding all year round.

The very favourable amino acid profile combines with a seed that is high in oils, protein and energy, while being highly digestible for a wide range of bird species. The high calorific value of these tiny seeds will help birds to store fat to help keep warm, and the high protein level will help with the regeneration of feathers throughout moults.

Rich in the essential nutrients that our wild birds deserve, Niger seed is becoming a key component in the survival and successful wild breeding programs of Goldfinches, due to how much they cherish the seed.

Johnston & Jeff have a keen focus on ensuring that their foods are both highly nutritious and safe for the wild birds which will be consuming them, so all seed is cleaned to a purity level of 99.9% and all seed and nut types are cleaned individually. Any raw materials that are suspected of not being perfect are rejected and no additives are used to cleanse or polish.

A huge advantage to some is that when Niger seed is fed as a straight seed, squirrels tend to ignore it. This means you can discourage squirrels from visiting your garden while still providing a nutritious meal for the local birds.

Niger seed should only be fed from a specialised Niger Seed Feeder as due to the large surface area it will become mouldy very quickly if fed from a table or from the ground. We recommend feeding birds all year round, to aid their survival and allow you to enjoy watching them throughout the seasons - in Autumn/Winter food is scarce and in Spring/Summer it's important to provide a plentiful supply to allow them to nurture their young. Ensure water is available all year around in a suitable Water Dispenser for birds to drink and bathe, ensuring it is cleaned regularly and doesn't freeze in colder weather. Prevent bacterial build-up where birds feed by regularly cleaning with a Bird-Safe Disinfectant.
