Peanut - Hearts
Peanuts are rich in calories and protein. Crushed peanuts are accessible to more species than full-shelled peanuts. They are appreciated by woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees, cardinals, sparrows, goldfinches and more. They can be offered in a regular feeder either alone or mixed with other seeds.
*Please note peanuts are prone to be colonized by aspergillus mold which produces aflatoxins. Aflatoxins are toxic and carcinogenic to humans and birds. Discard any peanuts that are old or that look or smell spoiled.
*Please note that due to its size, it is not possible to ship this item. Online orders containing this item must be picked up at the centre.

- Store seeds in a dry cool location such as a garage or a basement. Do not store seeds outside.

- Do not leave seeds in a feeder for more than 2 weeks.
- Toss seeds that are wet, spoiled or moldy.
