Nyjer Seed for Wild Birds

A 13kg sack of Dr Green Nyjer Seed, otherwise known as Nyger Seed, Niger Seed or Thistle Seed.

Nyjer seed is a very fine, tiny, but oil rich seed that is highly nutritious that comes from an African yellow daisy. It's basic nutritional components are 35% fat, 18% protein and 18% fiber.

They're perfect for attracting beautiful and colourful finches to your garden. They're a great seed to feed if you're fed up of crows eating up all your seed mixes from the smaller birds, as nyjer seed is only enjoyed by Tits, Finches, Sparrows, Pigeons and Doves.

Nyjer seed is a popular winter food as birds require higher oil and calorie content than normal so they can store fat to survive the cold temperatures. The protein that is found in nyjer seed is useful in regenerating feathers when birds molt during the end of fall and early spring.

The seed is sterilized and will not sprout if spilled in your garden.

If you're looking to store this sack of seed in a container, you'll need around 20 litres of space.

Nyjer Seed or Niger Seed?

You may sometimes see Njyer Seed spelt as Niger Seed. The Niger spelling is an older version but is still quite commonly used. Nyjer and Niger seed are exactly the same thing, only the spelling is different.

Feeding Nyjer Seed

Nyjer seed should be fed to the birds in a special nyjer seed feeder due to it's small size and the fact that it flows very easily. Otherwise it can be sprinkled over a bird table or ground feeder.

We recommend that you take a look at our range of Nyjer Seed Feeders to avoid wastage.
