A superb little seed, easily digested, and high in oils, protein and energy. It is said to be a natural tonic. Not to be confused with Thistle for which it is often mistaken [and often mis-sold]. It’s very light so use a Niger Feeder or it will blow away.
Excellent for: Tits, Finches and Siskins – and fledglings
