Plump black sunflower seeds

These shiny, thin-skinned seeds are a true feast for birds. Every 100g contains 20g of carbohydrate, 20g of protein and a huge 50g of highly calorific fat. Stripped of their husks they’re even easier for birds to handle, with the bonus of leaving no mess beneath your feeders. A rarer sighting in cheap blends, we don’t stint on these super seeds in Special Mix™.

Peck-sized peanut granules

Part of the pea and bean family, these are legumes rather than nuts. They’re an extremely valuable source of nutrition, with every 100g containing 20g of carbs, 25g of body-building protein and almost 50g of fat. Peanuts are a star ingredient in Special Mix™, featured in granular form that’s easier and safer for younger birds and adults to manage.

...and absolutely no wheat

This breakfast cereal staple serves as a cheap filler in many budget birdfood blends, where its bulk disguises meagre energy levels. You won’t find it in Special Mix™, where our focus is firmly on nutritious, high-energy ingredients that help birds make best use of limited foraging time, especially in the winter months.

Special Mix™ Husk-Free

Birds discard indigestible seed husks, leaving their unsightly throw-aways beneath your bird feeder. This husk-free blend saves you the chore of regular clear-ups. It’s extremely efficient from a nutritional perspective, too, since absolutely nothing’s wasted.

Special Mix Husk Free bird food
Special Mix™ Original

Use it anywhere, any time and in any garden. Our classic free-flowing blend is equally suitable for tubular bird feeders, bird tables and dishes. The inclusion of seed husks helps protect against rain and humidity, a common cause of clogged-up bird feeder ports.
