Peanuts for Birds
Peanuts are rich in oil and have good protein levels that benefit your garden birds. All ranges of Ark Wildlife peanuts are certified Aflatoxin Free which is critical for the health of wild birds visiting your garden.Read More
All our peanuts for birds are raw and unsalted. You must never feed roasted, flavoured or salted peanuts to birds as they can’t process high levels of salt and they may become ill as a result. Ark bird peanuts are additionally tested to be free from Aflatoxin, a naturally occurring fungus in peanuts which can kill birds.
If I put out peanuts in my garden, which birds will I attract?
If you put out peanuts in your garden you can expect to attract a variety of local birds who will enjoy this nutritious food, including:
You can provide Ark Peanut Granules for the smaller birds to enjoy, such as robins and wrens and birds like blackbirds, while other birds will enjoy the peanuts in their shell from a peanut feeder.
What bird feeders do I use for peanuts?
Take a look at our range of specially designed peanut bird feeders where the birds have to peck at the nuts through wire or mesh so they only take small amounts, you can choose from hanging peanut bird feeders or ground feeders and trays.
Peanuts are not only a favourite with birds, but also squirrels. If you want to feed peanuts to your birds without the squirrels dominating the feeder then have a look at our squirrel proof peanut feeders and small mesh Ground Feeder Cage. Alternatively, you might want to treat your local squirrels and support them too, in which case take a look at our Squirrel Lovers Pack and range of squirrel feeders.
Be careful to feed small quantities of peanuts to wild birds because if the peanuts are left for a long time they can go mouldy and make birds ill with respiratory problems.
