FAQ Title 1 What are the best ways to feed whole peanuts to birds?
FAQ Content 1

Whole peanuts should only ever be fed using a mesh feeder, as this ensures that birds have to peck at the peanuts to remove small pieces and cannot swallow them whole. The reason this is important is because some birds – and in particular Robins – have been known to swallow whole peanuts which has resulted in them choking to death.

If you are not using bird feeders for your peanuts, then whole nuts must be broken down properly. You can opt to buy our chopped peanuts if you are feeding garden birds using a ground tray  or a bird table. These are safe to feed in open spaces. 

Otherwise, feed premium whole peanuts for birds using a specially-designed peanut feeder. These are designed to suspend peanuts so that birds can easily and safely chip away at them.

FAQ Title 2 Are your peanuts Aflatoxin safe?
FAQ Content 2 Yes, our premium peanuts for birds are independently tested to ensure that they are human grade. All our peanuts and peanut products have been Aflatoxin tested to ensure this.
FAQ Title 3 Are peanuts good for birds?
FAQ Content 3

Peanuts are a highly nutritious food for birds all year round, and particularly during the colder months. They contain a combination of important properties for birds: fibre, fat and protein. Garden birds need to eat food that is rich in each of these groups to be healthy. 

Peanuts are a great food to include in your bird feed selection during UK breeding season (February - August). During this time, birds need more energy than usual to mate and then, during nesting season, to care for their young. They also feed nutritious food to baby birds in the nest, which is why peanuts are a great food to include in your garden during these months. Because of this, high energy foods such as peanuts (as well as suet products) are an ideal food source for birds.

FAQ Title 4 Are there risks to feeding whole peanuts to wild birds?
FAQ Content 4

Many birds will safely eat whole peanuts, by breaking them down with their beaks. However, some smaller birds, such as the Robin, have been known to eat peanuts whole and choke on them. Baby birds are also prone to choking on whole peanuts, as they have smaller throats.

To avoid this, place whole peanuts for birds in a suitable peanut feeder. This allows birds to chip away at peanuts safely, and take pieces without swallowing the entire nut. 

Alternatively, you could also opt for putting out peanut granules or chopped peanuts. These can be more easily consumed by birds when placed on a ground tray or bird table.

FAQ Title 5 What else should I put in my garden with peanuts for birds?
FAQ Content 5

There are many options when it comes to wild bird food. If you want to attract a wide variety of species to your garden throughout the year, you should aim to include a wide range of bird food

Bird feeding areas should include a mixture of bird seeds (such as seed mixes or straight seeds),peanuts and live foods like live mealworms. You can also include suet products, like fat balls, suet pellets or suet blocks to attract a variety of species. Suet is a high energy pre-made bird food product that contains peanut flour.

FAQ Title 6 How are peanuts grown?
FAQ Content 6

Peanuts are actually not a nut but a legume, meaning they grow below ground rather than above ground, on a plant or tree as a nut does. The peanut plant develops flowers, then when the flower withers it turns into a ‘peg’. This then turns downward until it penetrates the soil and eventually grows into a peanut.

Crucially, peanuts can only be grown in frost-free conditions, which therefore dictates the countries and regions they can be farmed in. Examples include California in the USA and African countries including Nigeria and Sudan.

Special machines are used to pull the peanuts from the ground when they’re ready to harvest, which takes place in the autumn months. At this point the peanuts are actually quite moist, but are then cured by a process which uses warm air.

FAQ Title 7 Which birds eat peanuts?
FAQ Content 7

Peanuts are rich in essential oils and proteins, making them a favourite of many garden bird species including the tit family, nuthatch and Great Spotted woodpecker.

For more information on which wild birds eat peanuts, go to our 'what birds eat this section' below. 

If placed in your garden, peanuts are likely to attract any or all of the following bird species: 

- Great-spotted woodpeckers

-Tits (including Blue tits, Long-tailed tits, and Great tits)

-Finches (including Greenfinches and Siskins)

-Nuthatches 

Robins readily eat chopped peanuts, though they prefer live foods like mealworms. When putting out peanuts for birds, place them in a suitable feeder, or break them down. This will ensure any Robins or smaller birds that feed on them will not attempt to eat them whole and choke. 

If you don’t wish to use a bird feeder, you can buy split peanuts for birds from Vine House Farm. These are the same quality and contain the same amount of nutrition as our premium whole peanuts for birds.

    These have been a lifeline this year for jays who would normally bury acorns that were in short supply after a dry spring. We had as many as seven jays at a time on the lawn, takiing away 10 to 20 nuts at a time. This demand, in addition to all the other birds and the foxes (and occasional badger or hedgehog) means we have to buy 25kg bags once or twice a month!

FAQS

What are the best ways to feed whole peanuts to birds?

Whole peanuts should only ever be fed using a mesh feeder, as this ensures that birds have to peck at the peanuts to remove small pieces and cannot swallow them whole. The reason this is important is because some birds – and in particular Robins – have been known to swallow whole peanuts which has resulted in them choking to death.

If you are not using bird feeders for your peanuts, then whole nuts must be broken down properly. You can opt to buy our chopped peanuts if you are feeding garden birds using a ground tray  or a bird table. These are safe to feed in open spaces. 

Otherwise, feed premium whole peanuts for birds using a specially-designed peanut feeder. These are designed to suspend peanuts so that birds can easily and safely chip away at them.

Are your peanuts Aflatoxin safe?
Yes, our premium peanuts for birds are independently tested to ensure that they are human grade. All our peanuts and peanut products have been Aflatoxin tested to ensure this.
Are peanuts good for birds?

Peanuts are a highly nutritious food for birds all year round, and particularly during the colder months. They contain a combination of important properties for birds: fibre, fat and protein. Garden birds need to eat food that is rich in each of these groups to be healthy. 

Peanuts are a great food to include in your bird feed selection during UK breeding season (February - August). During this time, birds need more energy than usual to mate and then, during nesting season, to care for their young. They also feed nutritious food to baby birds in the nest, which is why peanuts are a great food to include in your garden during these months. Because of this, high energy foods such as peanuts (as well as suet products) are an ideal food source for birds.

Are there risks to feeding whole peanuts to wild birds?

Many birds will safely eat whole peanuts, by breaking them down with their beaks. However, some smaller birds, such as the Robin, have been known to eat peanuts whole and choke on them. Baby birds are also prone to choking on whole peanuts, as they have smaller throats.

To avoid this, place whole peanuts for birds in a suitable peanut feeder. This allows birds to chip away at peanuts safely, and take pieces without swallowing the entire nut. 

Alternatively, you could also opt for putting out peanut granules or chopped peanuts. These can be more easily consumed by birds when placed on a ground tray or bird table.

What else should I put in my garden with peanuts for birds?

There are many options when it comes to wild bird food. If you want to attract a wide variety of species to your garden throughout the year, you should aim to include a wide range of bird food

Bird feeding areas should include a mixture of bird seeds (such as seed mixes or straight seeds),peanuts and live foods like live mealworms. You can also include suet products, like fat balls, suet pellets or suet blocks to attract a variety of species. Suet is a high energy pre-made bird food product that contains peanut flour.

How are peanuts grown?

Peanuts are actually not a nut but a legume, meaning they grow below ground rather than above ground, on a plant or tree as a nut does. The peanut plant develops flowers, then when the flower withers it turns into a ‘peg’. This then turns downward until it penetrates the soil and eventually grows into a peanut.

Crucially, peanuts can only be grown in frost-free conditions, which therefore dictates the countries and regions they can be farmed in. Examples include California in the USA and African countries including Nigeria and Sudan.

Special machines are used to pull the peanuts from the ground when they’re ready to harvest, which takes place in the autumn months. At this point the peanuts are actually quite moist, but are then cured by a process which uses warm air.

Which birds eat peanuts?

Peanuts are rich in essential oils and proteins, making them a favourite of many garden bird species including the tit family, nuthatch and Great Spotted woodpecker.

For more information on which wild birds eat peanuts, go to our 'what birds eat this section' below. 

If placed in your garden, peanuts are likely to attract any or all of the following bird species: 

- Great-spotted woodpeckers

-Tits (including Blue tits, Long-tailed tits, and Great tits)

-Finches (including Greenfinches and Siskins)

-Nuthatches 

Robins readily eat chopped peanuts, though they prefer live foods like mealworms. When putting out peanuts for birds, place them in a suitable feeder, or break them down. This will ensure any Robins or smaller birds that feed on them will not attempt to eat them whole and choke. 

If you don’t wish to use a bird feeder, you can buy split peanuts for birds from Vine House Farm. These are the same quality and contain the same amount of nutrition as our premium whole peanuts for birds.
