Peanuts in the Shell

Peanuts are the best single source of protein and fat for your birds and a great addition to the choices you offer in your yard.

We pride ourselves on being a one-stop bird feeding shop, not only offering bird feeders but also food to fill them. Peanuts in the shell are typically used for feeding squirrels and some of the larger billed birds such as jays. Titmice also enjoy peanuts in the shell. Use our peanuts in the shell in your peanut feeders to provide the energy that birds need.

EcoTough Classic Bird Feeder

Two perches
Capacity: 3 qts
Dimensions: 9½” x 11¾” x 13¼”

Imagine a wood-free bird feeder that actually looks like wood! Our EcoTough® Classic won’t crack, fade or rot and has a lifetime guarantee. The Classic has curved ends so you can see birds feeding on both sides at the same time. Perch drains allow seed to drop out of the feeder for ground-feeding birds to eat, and angled perches let empty seed hulls be blown away by the wind. The removable screen bottom is treated with EcoClean® Antimicrobial Product Protection, providing 24/7 product protection.

The EcoTough Classic Feeder can be hung, but it does not come with the hanging wire to do so. We recommend that this feeder be pole mounted due to its weight (7 lbs unfilled) and size. If a tree were to hold this feeder, it would have to be a very sturdy tree.

EcoTough feeders and houses are environmentally friendly, high quality products that are made from recycled plastic milk jugs. These feeders and houses prevent used milk jugs from making their way into our landfills.

(Bird food not included.)

Peanut Hut Feeder

Our Peanut Hut is the ideal way to offer peanuts in the shell. The large mesh openings are designed to allow the peanuts to be removed easily by peanut-loving birds, including woodpeckers, titmice, nuthatches, chickadees and jays. The Peanut Hut is easy to fill, and its tray accommodates perching birds and helps keep empty shells from falling to the ground.

Providing peanuts is a great addition to the choices you offer your backyard birds. Peanuts are a high-energy food and are enjoyed by a wide variety of birds. Many of their visits will be to carry peanuts off and cache them for a later meal.
