Peanuts are certainly firm favourites with a variety of wild birds including tits, woodpeckers, sparrows and siskins. The peanuts you feature in your feeders will ensure that you attract a wonderful array of wild birds to your garden. However, it is essential that you choose good quality peanuts for birds.
Premium Peanuts for Wild Birds
Peanuts are prone to contamination with aflatoxin. This is a powerful liver toxin which can be extremely hazardous for wild birds. You should only invest in premium peanuts and then store them in a cool dry place to prevent the mould growth which can lead to contamination. At Little Peckers, our peanuts are sourced only from the world’s finest and most reliable producers and are subject to rigorous inspection.
Seasonal Treats for Wild Birds
Peanuts are highly nutritious as they are rich in protein and natural oils. They are a great source of vital calories when food is in short supply and so are ideal for winter feeding. The cold temperatures during the winter months also make mould growth is less likely.
When offering peanuts to wild birds, always use a mesh feeder as it is important that the birds don’t take whole nuts. These can be a choke hazard for small birds and chicks. Extra care is required during the breeding season if natural food sources are scarce as adult birds may then attempt to feed their young with the nuts from your feeders. You will find the perfect mesh wild bird feeders for your peanuts here at Little Peckers.
