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.
Works well with the Nifty Niger™, Mighty Mesh™ and Terrific Tube™ feeders.
