The Hungry Puppy is a proud carrier of Nyjer Seed, a finch favorite, including American Goldfinches, Purple Finches, House Finches, and Pine Siskins. Carefully selected and cleaned, nyjer is a seed of the African yellow daisy. It’s especially popular during the winter months, as it has a higher fat and protein content. This is good for birds that require more calories and oil so that they can easily store fat in preparation for colder temperatures. Nyjer seeds should be fed using a special type of feeder that reduces spillage and attracts finches in particular. These are typically tube feeders with mesh and smaller feeding ports.
