A firm favourite with some of our most popular and beautiful garden birds. For your assurance we use the highest quality peanuts from human stocks. These are tested rigorously to BSA standards, to ensure there are nil detectable signs of aflatoxin.
Peanuts are a traditional bird food and, being high in essential oil, are popular with a wide variety of species. They can vary greatly in size and quality, which is why we ensure our peanuts are of the highest quality.
CJ Wildlife Peanuts are purchased from human food stocks to ensure that there are nil detectable signs of aflatoxin (produced by a mould that can develop on peanuts grown, harvested, transported or stored in excessively hot and humid conditions). Even in very small quantities, aflatoxin can be extremely harmful, so we take every care to ensure that the peanuts in this range are of the highest quality.
Proven to feed 22 species including: Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Siskin, Long-tailed Tit, House Sparrow, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Great Tit, Greenfinch, Tree Sparrow, Chaffinch, Starling, Nuthatch.
When to Feed: All year round! Supplementary food in spring and summer ensures parent birds collect enough natural foods, such as caterpillars, to feed to their young.
How to Feed: Peanuts should be fed from behind a wire mesh, such as a peanut feeder. Whole peanuts or very large pieces fed directly from the parent birds may choke chicks in the nest.
Keep in cool, dry conditions.
