Wild Bird Peanuts 2kg
These are superior peanuts from the Spanish type varieties that are grown for their higher oil content. Usually chosen from Indian Java, Chinese Hsuji 60/70, South African natals or Brazilian Lightskins.
Johnson and Jeef choose Runner or Virginia varieties, and find the best are generally Indian bold, Chinese Virginia & South American Runner. These are high in oils, proteins and energy and although marginally less specialised than Premium Peanuts, are an invaluable high energy and digestible food source.
Johnston & Jeff recommend that whole peanuts are ONLY fed from a wire mesh feeder because smaller birds and fledglings can choke on them. It is for this reason that we do not include whole peanuts in any of our blends which can be fed from a tubular feeder or table top.
