Niger seeds are from the Ramtil plant native to Ethiopia and is a relative to the sunflower plant. Often spelt nyger or nyjer, and miss-sold as thistle, it is a tiny oil rich seed that is high in energy, protein and is easy to digest.

A particular favourite of Finches and Siskins, Niger contains high levels of amino acids which are particularly beneficial for young fledglings.

If fed from the ground or a bird table Redpolls may be attracted to the garden. When feeding from a hanging feeder Niger can either be mixed with other straight seeds or fed from a specialist Niger feeder which have very small ports to prevent wastage.

When providing niger seed you are likely to see an increase in goldfinches visiting your garden!

"Niger Seed Success" - Dumfries Buyer
What a super company to deal with. My order was dealt with very professionally and Peckamix kept me informed along the way. The niger seed I purchaseed was of good quality and reasonably priced. Delivery time was excellent. Lots of goldfinch and siskins came to feed almost immediately. I put some niger seed in the usual niger feeder however I find this to be quite wasteful as a lot of seed goes on the ground. I also put some seed in an old pop sock and tied the top. Hooks up easily and the small finches love it. More importandt there is less waste.
