Nyjer® and WBU Finch Blend attracts finches of all kinds. Its high oil content is an excellent energy source for active birds and is best used in our specially designed finch feeders. It is important to keep the food fresh for our picky little eaters. Nyjer® has a thin shell and is vulnerable to spoilage while in the tube. Once seed starts to dry out and become stale, finches will turn up their beak for fresher forage. Here are some important tips for feeding finches:

  • Replace Nyjer® and WBU Finch Blend seed in feeders every three to four weeks if it is not being actively eaten
  • Store your Nyjer® and WBU Finch Blend in an airtight container for a longer shelf life, and buy in quantities that will be used up in a few weeks
  • Feed Nyjer® and WBU Finch Blend in a feeder with protection from the elements

WBU EcoClean® and Quick-Clean® Finch Tube Feeders­­, also called Nyjer® Feeders, are feeders designed specifically for finches and finch food.  Finch Tube Feeders differ from seed tube feeders in that the holes are small enough to accommodate finch beaks, preventing other birds from feeding. Our WBU Finch Tube Feeders accommodate Nyjer® seed and our WBU Finch Blend.  Many birds enjoy using Finch Tube Feeders including: American Goldfinches, Purple Finches, House Finches, Common and Hoary Redpolls, Pine Siskins and chickadees.

All of our WBU EcoClean® and Quick-Clean® Finch Tube Feeders can accommodate a variety of accessories including WBU Seed Trays, WBU Weather Guards and WBU Cages.  Attaching WBU Seed Trays to your finch tube feeder reduces waste and mess around your finch feeders and are available with diameters of 8.5” and 12”. Adding a WBU Weather Guard to our seed, tube, finch and peanut feeders to protect the food and birds from inclement weather.  Our WBU Seed Trays and Weather Guards come with a lifetime guarantee and are easy to attach.

Finches are picky when it comes to Nyjer® seed. They like it to be fresh and dry.  Weather Guards are particularly useful in keeping your Nyjer® seed fresh and dry in poor weather.  We also carry Feeder Fresh a product that can be put into your finch tube feeders to help keep your Nyjer® clean dry and mold free.  Feeder fresh is all natural and safe for the birds.

Feeder Fresh™Feeder Fresh™: Feeder Fresh™ is a bird-safe moisture trap and seed preservative for all seed and feeder types. It fights rain, condensation, leaks and keeps your seed fresh. Feeder Fresh™ is safe for all birds, inert and chemically similar to sand grit (which birds regularly consume in the wild). It is designed to promote the health of wild birds by keeping the feeders they eat from dry and reducing the incidence of harmful mold toxins. Feeder Fresh™ works with any type of seed; but many people use Feeder Fresh™ with their Nyjer® or WBU Finch Blend seed regularly as these seeds can easily spoil with moisture. We sell Feeder Fresh™ in two sizes 45 grams (1.6 oz.) and 454 g (16 oz.).
