We've never turned to cheap tricks like gimmicky additives or make-weight fillers. That's why free-flowing Special Mix™ remains the gold standard in British bird feeding, trusted for its dependably high energy levels and sheer versatility. Often copied but never bettered, it’s a special event every time you fill your feeder.
Use it anywhere, any time and in any garden. Our classic free-flowing blend is equally suitable for tubular feeders, bird tables and dishes. The inclusion of seed husks helps protect against rain and humidity, a common cause of clogged-up feeder ports.
Delivering the same exceptional performance as Special Mix Original, this alternative blend excludes Canary and white millet that are ignored by some birds. This refined formulation offers real value while attracting many species.

Yes, bird food can turn bad if it is not stored in the correct way, or is exposed to excessive moisture, which can lead to a buildup of mould and bacteria on the food. It should therefore be stored in a cool, dry place which will help to keep it fresher for longer. Make sure to store your bird food in tightly sealed, chew-proof containers, to eliminate any risk of unwanted pests and rodents infesting your supplies.
Poor quality bird food is often bulked out with ‘filler’ seeds and grains of low nutritional value, such as wheat and split peas. These are undesirable to small birds and so they may often ‘pick out’ the seeds or foods that they prefer, discarding those that are less appetising or less nutritional. Special Mix™ contains no wheat or fillers, so there’s nothing birds will pick out. Attract a wider variety of birds to your garden by choosing a high quality, highly nutritional, and wheat-free blend of bird food, such as Special Mix.
Certain bird food blends may contain particular ingredients which can be harmful to dogs if consumed. For instance, raisins and macadamia nuts, which are found in some bird food mixes, are highly toxic to dogs. Whole or large peanut pieces could also fall to the ground, creating a possible choking hazard for smaller breeds. It is also important to make sure that your bird food does not build up on the ground below feeders, especially in wet conditions. Over time, this can lead to mould and bacteria contamination, which if then ingested, could also pose a risk to a dog’s health.
