WIGGLY WIGGLERS SEED SPOTLIGHT: Farmer Phil's Deluxe British Mix

 WIGGLY WIGGLERS SEED SPOTLIGHT: Farmer Phil's Deluxe British Mix
By Rob Gale 3 months ago

Each month we'll highlight one of our fantastic seed mixes or straight seeds that we think you should try - giving you an idea of when and where to use it and what birds may like it the best!

This birdfeed is not just designed for British Birds (although it is perfect for them), no, this is British Mix because it's grown in British fields by Farmer Phil and some of his friends.

This is a high energy mix which is packed with the very best ingredients, and is wheat free.


Black Sunflowers; Thinner shells so preferred by the birds over their striped relations, although this does make them more expensive to produce,

White Millet; A small white seed, favoured by both tree and house sparrows, reed buntings, finches and tits, siskins and wrens. It is far superior to the red variety, as it has a thin hull, so is easy for these small birds to eat.

Black Rape; A small black seed, usually grown for its high oil content, very high in protein, known by farmers as 'Black Gold'!

Linseed; Has a very high oil content, keeps birds, especially their feathers, in tip-top condition. Linseed is particularly beneficial when birds are laying or moulting, and is enjoyed by all, but in particular, the yellowhammer, whose population is currently in decline,

Groats; These are produced from Oats, which are de-hulled and fined. Excellent for weight gain and condition as they are high in fat and protein, favoured by larger birds,

Canary Seed; These are super fine, and as their name suggests, are favoured by all of the smaller birds,

and Oyster Grit; A very valuable addition to any birds diet, it enables them to efficiently grind food in their gizzard and improve their digestion of vital nutrients. It also helps to improve the quality of their eggshells.
