Niger Seed Feeders
Many wild birds love niger seeds and will flock in great numbers to feast on them. These small and fine seeds are particularly beneficial for goldfinches and feeding them in our gardens is thought to have boosted goldfinch numbers in recent years. These seeds are very fine, so are not suitable for feeding from standard feeders. Shop our range of niger seed feeders now.Read More

Which birds eat niger seeds?
Niger seeds are a favourite of Goldfinches, Siskins and Redpolls. Their sharp and pointy beaks are ideal for cracking open the seeds. Read our blog on attracting goldfinches to your garden.
Birds do not enjoy dry niger seeds, so seeds that are left out too long will only go to waste. Keep your niger feeders clean to deter vermin and prevent the spread of disease.
Wild birds need water as much as food for drinking and bathing. We always recommend putting fresh clean water out every day of the year.
