A favorite of almost all seed-eating birds, your feathered friends will happily fill up on our Premium Oil Sunflower bird seed. It's a great source of energy for the birds and 99% free of sticks, stems or other foreign matter so your feeders won't clog with debris. Oil sunflower has a high calorie/ounce ratio due to its high fat and protein content and its relatively thin shell. Among seed ingredients, oil sunflower attracts the greatest variety of small and large seed-eating birds. Studies by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology have shown that most birds prefer oil sunflower seeds to both striped sunflower and white proso millet. Fill your feeders with this top-grade fuel, and watch the birds flock.
Get More with Hulled Sunflower
Get more birds for your bucks by offering sunflower seeds without their shells. No shells means no mess under your feeder. Hulled sunflower seeds have a high oil content and provide birds with an extra kick of energy. It's an ideal seed to offer in feeders near patios, sidewalks or balconies. Offering hulled sunflower is also cost efficient, because you're not paying for the shells that are not consumed.
Hulled Sunflower is available as either Medium Chips or Fine Chips. Medium Chips are sunflower seeds that have been coarsely chopped up and may include some whole seeds. Fine Chips are just that, sunflower seeds that have been chopped up into finer pieces. Both Medium and Fine Chips will attract the same variety of birds, however the Fine Chips are additionally less messy as there is less variety of seed sizes for your picky birds to sort through before finding the one that they want.
