Our top-quality sunflower heart chips (broken and smaller pieces of sunflower hearts created when the black outer husk is removed) are a high energy nutrient rich snack loved by wild birds all year round.
Sunflower heart chips are particularly favoured by tits and soft-billed birds such as robins and dunnocks. These sunflower heart chips are perfect for both larger birds and younger fledglings since the smaller bite-sized pieces are easier for them to handle. Whilst most of the product will be chips, please note that there may also be some small sized whole sunflower hearts present in the bag.
Sunflower Heart Chips: Feeding and Storage
Sunflower heart chips are best fed from a bird table or feeding platform or from the ground. Although they can be fed from normal hanging seed feeders, if the weather is wet, they may clog the feeder.
If you would prefer to feed them from a hanging feeder, we recommend that you use an easy clean feeder, where the bottom easily detaches for easy cleaning and emptying.
Your sunflower heart chips should be stored somewhere cool and dry. We recommend that they should be used within 5 months of purchase - just to make sure they stay fresh and nutritious for your garden birds.
