Type: Straight Seed
Niger Seed, often mistakenly called Thistle seed, is a favorite of beautiful wild finches like the American Goldfinch. Imported from Africa and sterilized upon entry to prevent germination, this special seed is a great source of energy due to its high oil content.
When served straight, it is best used in a specifically designed tubular feeder, like the Nifty Niger feeder, or “thistle sock” with small holes where it can be economically dispensed. When Niger seed is mixed with sunflower chips or hearts, it works well with the Nifty Niger, Mighty Mesh and Terrific Tube feeders.
