Shelled Peanuts

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.

Peanuts are a high-energy food, and a wide variety of birds really enjoy them. Birds such as woodpeckers, titmice, nuthatches, chickadees, jays and more will frequent peanut feeders. Many of their visits will be to carry peanuts off and cache them for a later meal. We offer a variety of bird feeders that allow the birds to pull the peanuts from the feeder, and they can cling anywhere they want.

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.)
