Are your Monkey Nuts aflatoxin tested?
Yes, of course. Any nuts with even the slightest trace of aflatoxin are removed from sale. For those of you new to bird feeding, aflatoxin is a toxin often found in peanuts which are fine to humans but can be poisonous to birds. Never use regular human-grade peanuts for feeding birds.
How to feed Monkey Nuts to birds?
Monkey nuts can be fed to birds by mesh feeder (a great source of entertainment), hung from a tree with a piece of string for your local tits or simply scattered on the ground for the squirrels.
When is the best time of year to feed Monkey Nuts to wild birds?
Monkey Nuts are ideal for feeding throughout the year, however, it's best to leave them out of your feeders during early spring when the birds are breeding. This is due to choking hazard the peanuts present to young birds. The best time of year is winter as the fat and protein content will be ideal for combatting the bitterly cold weather.
Can Squirrels Eat Monkey Nuts?
Yes, squirrels can eat monkey nuts. All our nut-based products are tested for aflatoxin (a nasty little toxin that can harm birds and other wildlife) prior to being sold. In fact, squirrels adore Monkey Nuts, as they're perfect for (excuse the pun!) squirrelling away for a rainy day.
Are Monkey Nuts Peanuts?
Yes, monkey nuts are peanuts. When your monkey nuts arrive, try breaking open the shell and see what you find inside. If your monkey nuts are fresh (which they are when you buy with Feeds&Seeds), you should find a delicious pink nut inside.
Are Monkey Nuts healthy for wild birds?
Yes, absolutely, monkey nuts are a perfectly healthy food for birds. Not only are they packed in fat and protein, but they’re also ideal for a bird’s foraging instinct as the bird pecks their way through the husk to the juicy nut.
Where do we grow our monkey nuts?
Monkey nuts grow best in warm climates where the soil is particularly sandy. This means that we have to source our peanuts from abroad to ensure we get the best quality. The vast majority of our monkey nuts are sourced from Brazil.
