Seed-eating birds are quite adept at removing the seed coat or hull from a seed, in order to consume the kernel where the food value is found. They leave the hulls behind for their hosts to clean up. For many folks this bit of housekeeping is a small price to pay for the pleasure wild birds bring to our yards. In some situations these hulls are undesirable. If a feeder hangs within a perennial bed, removing the hulls can be difficult. In carefully tended lawns, the occasional whole seed left behind can sprout. On decks and patios cleaning up seed hulls can be problematic. For those situations, Aspen Song® Just Desserts® is the ideal solution.
Each of the ingredients: peanuts, tree nuts, sunflower kernels, shelled pumpkin seeds, and hulled millet have had the seed coat removed. The mix is 100% pure food. There are no shells to be left behind. Because these ingredients are “partial” seeds, they will not germinate. The mix is a great value because you are not paying for the seed hulls.
Expect a wide variety of feeder birds to relish this mix as the contents are highly desired by all species. Because the contents are shell-less the food is available to all species. The unusual nature of this food may lure some uncommon visitors such as Indigo Buntings, Brown Creepers, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Golden-crowned Kinglets, Yellow-rumped Warblers, and Pine Warblers!
One of the values of the seed hull is the weather protection it provides the seed during dormancy. Because the hull has been removed, it is important that you offer it in an enclosed tube feeder or hopper style feeder with a roof.
