They've also been the first to market black oil sunflower seed, regional blends, and deluxe and premium bird foods.

Questions & Answers

3 Customer Questions

Is this sterile seed? I have had Wagner's brand in the past that wasn't. Thanks.
Answer by ChewyFeb 03, 2018
Before it is imported, Nyjer seeds are sterilized by intense heat to prevent germination of any additional seeds that may be part of the mix.

Is this 100% nyjer (thistle) seed? Or are there other kinds of seeds mixed in?
Answer by ChewyMay 25, 2021
This contains only Nyjer Seed.

From where are these seeds sourced?
Answer by ChewyMar 11, 2022
These seeds sourced from Ethiopia.

Good stuff

This is good bird food. It encourages cardinals and chickadees which are my favorite birds. And it discourages sparrows, which are not my favorite.

not so great

I was excited to find Nyjer seed at Chewy for about the same price as I get it from a tack and feed store near me. The tack and feed store had been out for some time, so I decided to order it from Chewy. Not a good experience. There are a lot of twigs in with the seed - not the case with what I buy from the tack and feed store - which plugs up the bird feeder. The birds are just not eating this brand. That's shocking to me, because normally I reload their feeder every 3-4 days. I will not purchase this brand again. Very disappointing.

Rancid seed, burst bag, had to throw out

Had to throw out two bags of this -- both rancid, birds won't touch it. First bag was delivered burst and spilled out in the shipping box; it was replaced free but neither was usable.

Inconsistant Quality

Normally, these seeds are plump and the birds gobble them up; but three of the bags I've received in the past year have been unpalatable to the birds. They are small and dusty. The birds peck at them listlessly and then boycott them entirely. When the seeds are good, they're "very good indeed, but when they are bad, they are horrid". The last two bags I received, with an apparent expiration date of 3/2/2024, fall into the horrid category; so I wouldn't recommend ordering this product at this time.

waste of money and time

I bought this because I thought it was the preferred food of finches and some other birds. I had even bought the special feeder from Perky Pet. I put some of this seed into the feeder and hung it on a clothesline near a dwarf pear tree in the back corner of my yard, a few days before a snowstorm. I watched every day, but the only time any small birds(sparrows?) tried to eat from it was during the snowstorm when they were desperate. After about a month with no birds eating from this feeder, I finally started spreading this nyger seed on a ground platform where pigeons and blackbirds, and sparrows eat. They eat some other seeds and suet nuggets there but leave the nyger seed and only eat a small amount as the last resort. I was just reading articles online and found out that finches prefer a mixture of 3 or 4 kinds of seeds including nyger seed, but don't like nyger seed by itself.

Thistle seed for my goldfinches.

Unfortunately one of the bags busted open on the way here. Not Chewy's fault though. I love Chewy ❤️ And the goldfinch love the Wagner seed.

Not attracting birds

No birds have come to the feeder! We’re still watching and waiting. But so far we are disappointed. Not sure if it’s the food or the feeder.
