Complete and delicious Nyger Seeds from Extra Select
Extra Select Niger Seeds are a fantastic small seed that's easy to digest and packed with oils, protein, and energy. The Niger seed (also known as Nyger seed or Nyjer seed) is a little black seed produced by the Guizotia flower, a delicate yellow bloom endemic to Africa. To give your birds a more diversified diet, mix Niger Seed with other seeds. It's ideal for treating little birds in your region, with goldfinches being particularly fond of it. It is loved by finches and tits and its favourable amino acid pattern means it is very useful when fledglings are about.
Not to be confused with thistle for which it is often mistaken (and often mis-sold).
You will need a special feeder for Niger because the seeds are so light and will be blown out of the usual tubular types, but it’s certainly worth it.
Best fed from a feeder.
