Hazelnuts For Wild Birds And Animals




Product Details

Hazelnuts are an excellent source of energy for wild birds and squirrels due to the high unsaturated fat and protein content. They also contain a range of vitamins, most notably Thiamin, minerals and amino acids which help keep wild birds and squirrels healthy. These can be fed on bird tables, on the ground or in nut feeders and are ideal to feed to squirrels to help prepare them for the breeding season.

They are probably best fed from nut feeders during the breeding season to prevent the risk of young chicks choking or broken up in some way to make the pieces smaller.

smell very nice! I blend them up and mix into the 'bird cake' I make (mix of seeds, suet pellets, mealworms, nuts and fats) hopefully eliminating any potential choking hazard!

Lovely quality nuts with a marvellous aroma. These are definitely going to be rationed, as they look and smell very moreish. The squirrels have won the nuttery!

These were an excellent alternative to peanuts - they were on offer at £12.60 for 12.6kg, which was good value. They have now put the price up to £20 for the same amount, so I won't be buying them again unless they go back on special offer. The back contained a lot of husks and powder which probably accounted for about 15% of the total bag weight. Seemed to have a similar appeal to birds as peanuts.

Had to crush them before placing in the feeder. Not so popular as peanuts but jackdaws and starlings enjoy a feed. Probably best for feeding suirrels but I rarely get them visiting my garden,

Not sure our garden birds like the. Fed in a number of ways but seem too big. However the squirrels like them and sit for a long time on the feeders nibbling away.
Nothing wrong with the product but will probably stick to peanuts in future as they attract a variety of birds including the pigeons!

Twice a day I put these hazelnuts out for the birds I put them in a chopper for a few seconds and they are devoured in an hour. Highly recommended.

Bought these to try as the price seemed very good.I was out when they were delivered and they were left where I said. By the time I got back (less than half an hour) our squirrels had found them and broken into the bag - I think they're a winner !
