This seed looks much better than branded alternatives on Amazon, with a more diverse mixture including a few suet pellets. The birds love it!

yes the blackbirds definitely love this feed - I have separate dishes for each and the baby robin is very happy! Think this must be the best feed for them because it is finished very quickly - have had to keep putting out dry food and chucking any wet stuff because the weather has been continual rain here.

Patricia commented on 2023-07-17 14:32:38 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 12.6 kg as "Very Good"

Price for this was very good not yet tried as usually my garden birds prefer sunflower hearts but thought I would try and vary what they eat.

jacquie commented on 2023-07-17 08:53:49 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 12.6 kg as "Very Good"

well its not just robins and blackbirds who like this - so do the woodies, the sparrows and the starlings - the tits get to have a go once they have all had their fill and everybody emties the fours feeds within a very short time. Another great price too!

Very good quality seed, as always with Twootz. This is the first time I have tried the Robin and song bird mix, but it clearly has lots of extra bits in it, so I am hoping it will attract the robins more. We shall wait and see!

First time trying this mix, but if it's as good as the suet pellets then the birds are in for a treat.

Not so keen on this product although birds did eat it. Seem very friable and lacking in substance.

Beth commented on 2020-12-12 11:47:22 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 12.6 kg as "Very Good"

Lovely mix which is devoured in no time. Please, please could the bags be slightly thicker? Or 2 smaller bags: The 12.5kg bag extremely thin and split and holed easily when trying to decant into different containers. Other than that very happy.

Ian commented on 2020-11-25 21:52:46 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 12.6 kg as "Very Good"

Probably the best value bird feed I have found in a long time. Far better than many more expensive mixes on the market, with minimal wheat used to pad it out. Going down well with all the seed eaters.

Judging by the birds visiting our garden they certainly enjoy this mix,
Visitors include both house and tree sparrows, dunnocks, blue tits, great tits, robins, gold finches, No subsequent plant growth beneath the feeders is a good deal for me.

Alan commented on 2019-07-22 18:46:24 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 25.2 kg as "Very Good"

Birds love it attracts a wide range and seed that falls on ground does not germinate.

All birds enjoy this selection. I mix with the Blackbird & Thrush mix for ground feeding and it all disappears quickly.

Really love the No Mess mixes as I don't have to worry about loads of unwanted seedlings coming up in the middle of my flower beds. Excellent mixture of seeds too. The birds queue up to get at the feeders, so I know they're contented.

Beth commented on 2018-07-27 11:12:54 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 12.6 kg as "Very Good"

always a favourite with the smaller birds - good mix of foods - although in this dry weather it germinates quite well!

This is the first time I have bought this particular mix and my birds absolutely love it and the best thing is it makes no mess, especially with the birds clearing up every last bit off the ground too lol, this will be a re-order for sure!
Delivery is brilliant too and if I need a note added for the driver I just send a quick email and I usually get a reply within a few minutes!
All in all very happy! x

Jackie commented on 2018-06-20 18:36:39 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 12.6 kg as "Very Good"

This seed was good for the smaller birds and goes well in the seed feeders also as more of a mix with other seeds to give a bit more variety when used in the ground feeder, however did have rather a strong smell I found every time the bag was open, but would buy again.

Elizabeth commented on 2018-06-19 20:59:02 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 12.6 kg as "Very Good"

A great mix for the small birds in our garden - house sparrows, chaffinches, blue and great tits flocking to the feeder and robins, blackbirds, starlings, collared doves and nuthatches enjoying the seed that I put on the ground and on the birdtable. All of the mix is being eaten too - no mess! Much better than mixes with a lot of wheat or maize which only the woodpigeons seem to like!

Arshia commented on 2018-04-12 20:02:43 and rated Robin and Songbird No Mess Mix 25.2 kg as "Very Good"

In 5 minutes, had my first robin having the food! The birds don't eat everything in the mix, but generally it is value for money.

I have been buying this product for a while and find it very good as it attracts a variety of birds :i mix it with sunflower hearts and it is especially enjoyed by the goldfinches which visit my garden every year. It,s wonderful to see them return year after year. My only gripe is that it contains nuts which i have to remove especially in spring and summer as the nuts especially the smaller,chipped nuts , can be dangerous for young birds which are feeding as they can choke on them so i ensure i,ve removed all traces of nuts from the mix before putting it into the feeders.

This food continues to be enjoyed by all the garden birds. Unfortunately the mix contains a lot of very fine dust which clogs the feeders so I sieve it before serving to our feathered friends.

I thought I would try an alternative mix so that I would attract finches and robins as the information about the product suggested. However I have had the bird feeder up for over three days and there has been no interest from these birds. Added to this the usual birds such as sparrows and even starlings seem to have no interest in it. I am going to try different positions in the garden and even different feeders to see if this makes any difference but at the moment I feel that I have bought an expensive mix and would have been better to stick with the standard wild bird mix - which they seem to like. I am disappointed with this product.

Many thanks for letting us know this in your feedback. Just so I could investigate this with our warehouse and to work out a compensation, could you kindly send a photo of the seed mix to info@twootz.com

Excellent product at competitive price and the birds love it. The only criticism I have is the amount of very fine particulates that tend to clogg the feeders. However I now seive the food prior to filling the feeders and this has solved the problem.

A popular feed for the birds that visit my garden, especially the house sparrows who jostle for position on the feeder. Any spillages are quickly eaten by pigeons and my resident robin.
