Niger Seed

This seed is especially loved by goldfinches. The best way that we have found to feed it is by growing some Teasel and adding a sprinkling to the dead heads in your garden. As it is so fine it's not recommended for use in conventional feeders.

Details

This seed is especially loved by goldfinches and Siskins.

It is very small, but high in oil, so ideal for smaller birds with small beaks and a high metabolism.

As it is so fine it's not recommended for use in conventional feeders, but we do stock a few different varieties of Niger Seed Feeders.

The best way that we have found to feed it is by growing some Teasel and adding a sprinkling to the dead heads in your garden.

My goldfinches ignore it Review by NevilleM
Review
A new Droll Yankee Niger feeder was filled 8 months ago and the level has gone down less than an inch since then. The local goldfinches arrive regularly but prefer sunflower seeds in another DY feeder.
Will be drilling bigger holes in the feeder to make it of some use. (Posted on 14/02/2015)

This stuff is a Goldfinch magnet Review by Mary
Review
This stuff is a Goldfinch magnet. Put it out in a quality niger feeder (preferably with a tray to catch the stray seeds), stand back and watch the beautiful creatures flock to it!

I have heard comments like 'don't put out niger seed unless goldfinches visit your garden already' Review by Chris Shaw
Review
I have heard comments like 'don't put out niger seed unless goldfinches visit your garden already'. Not true - when we put out niger seed in the correct feeder (the feeder is important) goldfinches magically appeared and were even queueing on adjacent bushes waiting for a free perch on the feeder. As sooon as the seed ran out, the goldfinches stopped coming :-(

We were amazed at the way the goldfinches suddenly arrived in the garden within three days of hanging out the Niger seed feeder Review by Reg Dove
Review
Same as your other reviewers, we were amazed at the way the goldfinches suddenly arrived in the garden within three days of hanging out the Niger seed feeder. I counted eleven at the same time queuing to get at the seeds. I hadn't seen a goldfinch in our garden before this. My only problem now is paying to replace the seed, which they eat in enormous quantities.

Niger seed is the number one attraction for goldfinches in my garden Review by SL
Review
Niger seed is the number one attraction for goldfinches in my garden. I have two special niger seed feeders and have a flock of over 16 birds waiting to use them. The only problem is that although I use the proper feeders there is still a large amount of seed that ends up on the ground. I am trying to think of a way to catch the seed in a tray without it becoming waterlogged. Any ideas would be gratefully received. I did try letting the feeders run out in the hope that the birds would pick up the seed on the ground. They just stayed away )-;

I have in or about 100 goldfinches feeding in my garden Review by Peter Walsh
Review
I have in or about 100 goldfinches feeding in my garden, my problem now is I can no longer get the niger seed in bulk (100kg) at a reasonable price here in Ireland. I also purchase peanuts in large quantity (100kg). With the gold finches I have other finches, tits, blackbirds, siskens, thrushes and other breeds. Presently, I have 37 feeders to fill every second day.

My niger seed feeder is now attracting siskins in numbers Review by Chris Shaw
Review
In addition to goldfinches, my niger seed feeder is now attracting siskins in numbers. The niger seed runs out faster than any other food. In response to what other people had said about seed dropped to the ground - this happens but I aways seem to have a number of finches on the ground hopping around collecting it.

Well I have to report that after purchasing the tray that fits to the bottom of the Yankee Droll niger feeder all the problems of seed dropping have been solved Review by SL
Review
Hello it's me again. Well I have to report that after purchasing the tray that fits to the bottom of the Yankee Droll niger feeder all the problems of seed dropping have been solved. I did think that the price for the tray was a bit pricey, however given the results I now think that it was money well spent. Before the tray I had to sweep up the seeds on a regular basis. Now the path is clear and it was well worth the expense. I am now saving to buy a regular seed feeder and tray. Would give this product 5 stars as it cuts down on the amount of seed I have to buy.

I waited for about 3 weeks with a tubeful of niger seed in the special feeder Review by SUSAN HALL
Review
I waited for about 3 weeks with a tubeful of niger seed in the special feeder, swaying from the tree. Yeah?, I thought. But the goldfinches have arrrived. I'm amazed. How did they know that the seed was there? I've not even spotted a goldfinch scout in my garden before. The tits and finches won't have told them for they do not seem to get on with them very well. Bit of scrapping out on the feeders. Anyway, the seed worked! But what wasteful, messy little eaters they are.

The niger seeds are being guzzled greedily now the goldfinches have found them Review by Rachael Brooks
Review
The niger seeds are being guzzled greedily now the goldfinches have found them. It took two weeks for one bird to appear, today we had three. We're suitably impressed with their ability to home in where once there was nothing for them. So the seeds are a hit, as is the squirrel buster feeder - thanks guys!

I have lived in brentford for 10 years and had the usual sparrows and pigeons in the garden but the day after putting out nyger seed- 2 or 3 goldfinches appeared. How do they know?

My feeder has been groaning under the weight of Siskins their squeaking babies. Review by Pippa Scott-Harden
Review
My feeder has been groaning under the weight of Siskins their squeaking babies. They are so tame that I can stand only a metre away and they keep feeding happily. Is also occaisionally graced by the Goldfinches and to our enormous excitement a beautiful pair of Redpolls.
