During the winter months, it can be very difficult for wild birds to find the proper nutrition they need to stay healthy in the cold weather. After the first freeze, much of the natural diet of many birds start to die off and many birds depend on wild bird seed to get the food they need.
Smith Farm Supply has a great selection of bird seed available in our stores. Putting out bird seed is an almost guaranteed way to have a number of beautiful birds in your backyard on a daily basis. If you like to watch birds and enjoy their company, then we strongly recommend you come by our stores and talk to us about which bird seed will work best for the type of birds in your area.
We sell Pennington wild bird seed and Purina wild bird seed as well as Black Oil Sunflower seed.
Purina Wild Bird Seeds offer a wide variety of nutritional benefits to wild birds. It’s high-quality seeds and optimized formula provides more balanced nutrition for wild birds than whole grains. It helps promote strong consumption and keeps wild birds coming back.
Pennington Wild Bird Seeds was a natural extension of the company that started its business in the retail grass seeds industry in 1945. With several decades of grass seed expertise and backed by their USA based research facility, NexGen Turf Research, you can trust the quality of their bird seed products. Manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts and other tree nuts.
Black Oil Sunflower Seeds are meatier and have a higher oil content, giving birds more nutrition and calories in every bite. Black oil seeds also have thinner shells, making them easier for small birds to crack. This makes black oil sunflower seed a valuable and nutritious part of any backyard bird’s diet.
The general nutritional components of black oil sunflower seed are:
- 28 percent fat
- 25 percent fiber
- 15 percent protein
- B vitamins
- Vitamin E
