It takes 75 lbs. of sunflower seeds in the shell to get 25 lbs. of 100% bird edible, sunflower heart meats. Two thirds the weight of sunflower seeds is shell that can’t be eaten by the birds! So why should customers pay for inedible bird food? With Duncraft’s No-Waste blends, they don’t have to.
No matter how tough the times, bird lovers continue to spend money feeding their birds. Backyard bird feeding is a wonderful hobby that can be enjoyed by everyone and requires little expense—just the cost of a bird feeder and bird seed.
But these days, customers aren’t just grabbing cheap bird seed from the big box stores, hoping to save money. They’re looking for value—just what are they paying for?
Because bird seed is sold by the pound, cheap bird seed blends may contain inexpensive filler seeds that birds just won’t eat, such as wheat, milo and red millet. You can see all the milo, wheat, and un-cracked corn in the picture to the right–click to see full size. All that seed ends up on the ground, uneaten. Not to mention all the discarded shells from the sunflower seeds. So, how much bird-edible food did the customer actually get? Probably not half what they paid for.
Duncraft’s selection of No-Waste bird seed blends are nearly 100% bird edible. Customers don’t pay for inedible shells or unwanted seeds. Only sunflower heart meats and chips, peanut bits, shelled tree nuts, cracked corn, dried fruits, millet and Nyjer seeds go into No-Waste blends—birds eat every bit! And since there’s no build up of shells under the bird feeders, critters aren’t attracted and feeding areas stay clean and healthy. For bird lovers looking for real value in bird seed, Duncraft’s No-Waste blends are the answer.
