Excellent bird seed, no shells, so no mess. But very expensive. I mix Delight with regular black oil seed. Cuts down on shells, the birds love it and I have a great mix that all birds will eat instead of throwing it on ground.
Primarily peanuts and shelled sunflower, but with other nuts mixed in, this is what I was looking for. Good quality, look fresh and the peanuts are the smaller variety so are easier to use in a feeder (tho still have to give it a shake b/c does clog). The blue jays and various woodpeckers love the peanuts. And the squirrely critters. Unshelled sunflower seeds are a huge hit with most birds etc but have gotten pricey. I do put seed on the ground in the morning for early birds and noticed the feeder area has become a checkpoint for a red fox. I've watched (her?) eating the nuts.
I really like the no-waste mix. I put it in a squirrel proof feeder.
This item was open, inside my shipped box, and was a huge mess!
I live in an apartment in the city, so rats and mess are big concerns. I need a seed that won't scatter everywhere, which would make my neighbors unhappy and attract rats. This seed fits the bill. There is very little scatter, and I have a mesh scatter catcher under the feeder to catch what does fall (mostly peanuts rejected by smaller birds but eventually eaten by larger ones), so it is virtually mess-free. The birds love it! I have more species than I knew were still present in the city, including house finches, goldfinches, woodpeckers, and different varieties of sparrows (not just the ubiquitous house sparrows). My one complaint is that this stuff is extremely expensive. It has gone up a lot just in the past few months. Since there is no waste, it does go further than cheaper seed, but not enough to make up for the steep price. I have to feed very sparingly; I'm sure I'd have many more birds if I could afford to feed more. It's not just Chewy; it is even more expensive elsewhere. Hopefully the price increase is temporary and it will come back down.
Expensive but worth the price!!!!
The birds and squirrels LOVE this food and there is no waste or mess to clean up, but the price increases will drive me to find another solution for our wildlife. It has gone from $35 to $52 in a flash.
The joy and exuberance of my backyard birds is palpable. Some wonderful red headed woodpeckers and warblers have joined the group. It is my shear "Delight" to give joy to others, especially my fond feathered friends. This food is the finest way I know of doing so--thank you
I get this variety from time to time as a treat for our feeder visitors. I use it in an open platform feeder so more varieties of birds can get a chance at it plus some pieces are large and do not flow thru mesh and or the usual tube feeders we have. Never one morsel left by end of day and birds will sit in the big tree right above the bird pole waiting for a refill. From Jays to Chickadees...they all come in. Product is clean of anything not edible. Good product!
So healthy and full of nuts-- the birds absolutely love it!!
