What's in Copdock Mill Niger Bird Seeds?

Niger Seeds are the seed of the African yellow daisy Guizotia Abyssinica which is an upright, branched herb. All Niger seed sold as bird food is sterilised before it is imported, therefore it will not sprout in your garden. Rich in oil content and highly nutritious, Niger seeds are also full of nutritional goodness and essential oils, great for energetic birds.  

If it becomes mouldy then Niger Seed can be hazardous to birds. Therefore, always remove any uneaten seeds from feeders after three to four weeks. A good practice is to shake your feeder regularly to prevent clods of seed and mould developing. Try to keep the seeds dry and if necessary, put less seed in your feeder. If mould can be seen then throw the seed away and thoroughly clean the feeder before filling it up again.

Niger seeds generally contain up to 40% edible semi-drying oil, 20.9% carbohydrate and 27.8% protein.
