Why Use

Peanuts are one of the most popular garden bird foods and will attract a wide variety of colourful birds into your garden. From the more common birds (like Blue Tits and Chaffinches) to the rarer Great Spotted Woodpecker and Nuthatch, Peckish Peanuts will fill  your garden with colour and vitality.

It is important in spring to only feed peanuts from a mesh feeder, as young birds are small and can choke on whole peanuts.

All batches of Peckish peanuts are tested for Aflatoxins to ensure your garden birds receive only the highest quality.

How to Use

 

Where to Site

  • Site your feeder 2 metres from cover, such as trees or shrubs, making the feeder visible, whilst providing a safe place to retreat

How to Refill

  • Once empty, unscrew and remove the lid and pour seed into top
  • Ensure lid is securely in place

Feeding Tips

  • With food resources scarcer now, it is essential to feed garden birds all year round.
  • Once you have started to feed the birds it is important to continue this, and develop a routine, as the birds will become reliant upon your help.
  • Provide food throughout the whole year especially during breeding, nesting and fledgling periods.
  • Locate feeders stations near cover so that they’re easily accessible, but not too close if there is a risk of predators.

Hygiene

  • Always ensure garden birds have plenty of fresh clean water for drinking and bathing
  • Clean feeding and drinking areas regularly with a mild disinfectant
  • Keep food fresh and dry, removing any wet food to prevent the spread of bacteria and diseases

  • Keep packaging away from children to avoid suffocation
  • Store in a cool dry place
