Sunflower Hearts for birds

Posted by British Bird Food 24/02/2015 0 Comment(s)

Feed your wild garden birds Sunflower Hearts this Winter.

Sunflower hearts contain much needed oils for energy to see the birds through the harsh Winter months. They are already to eat and so the birds will take a sunflower heart over a seed with a husk on it every time. Although most small birds will 'chomp' the seed and some will fall to the floor or your bird feeder tray, the ground feeding birds will soon clear these up. Most of our seed mixes contain Sunflower Hearts, you can always tell a good seed mix by the colour, if it looks golden then it has a lot of Maize in it, if it looks grey then there are lots of Sunflower Hearts in it and they are the best seed in terms of energy for the birds. At the moment our Sunflower Hearts come from Bulgaria, packed late last year, they are still very fresh and have a good oil content, they are bulbous and don't have many broken seeds in with the bags. You can buy your Sunflower Hearts from British Bird Food in either the bulk 12.5 or 25Kg sacks, or you can buy them in our returnable packaging, just empty the 5Kg re-sealable bags and then put them all inside one bag, the return freepost address is printed on the bag, so all you have to do is post it back to us - simple, but very effective in terms of environmental savings, it does mean you might get your seed in a bag that has already been used a few times but at the end of the day we think that is what it is all about - more focus on what is inside the bag than the fancy branding of some of the products you see on the shelf - plain, simple and effective that is what we are about.
