About 1/2 are not good seeds. Either brown or rotten. The photo used is nowhere near what you get. Received mine 12-2022.
After the squirrels developed a taste for the white safflower seed, I bought a bag of Golden Safflower hoping they wouldn't like it. The squirrels left the Golden Safflower seed alone but unfortunately so did the cardinals! The cardinals returned after I provided the Valley Farms white safflower seed again! My love/hate relationship with the squirrels continues.
I ordered these safflower seeds since the usual brand seeds were temporarily out of stock, and I am very impressed with the quality of the seeds. These seeds don't have a lot of debris or bad seeds like other brands' seeds do, and my backyard birds love them as well. I will order from this seller from now on.
