Peanuts can be fed both in the shell and without a shell.  Because of this peanut feeders typically come in two varieties those that are designed for peanuts in the shell and others for peanuts without a shell. 

Peanut feeders for peanuts without a shell attract a wide variety of birds including: woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees and jays.  Feeders for peanuts without a shell can also accommodate Jim’s Birdacious® Bark Butter® Bits. Our feeders for peanuts without the shell are designed to accommodate birds such as woodpeckers and nuthatches, which cling to feed.

Peanut feeders for peanuts with a shell target a specific group of birds in Ontario, jays. Blue Jays and Gray Jays are really the only birds large enough in our backyards to carry and crack a full peanut.  Woodpeckers will also eat peanuts with a shell, but rather than taking the whole peanut and flying away with it as jays do, woodpeckers simply hold onto the feeder and peck the peanuts out of the shell. Squirrels and chipmunks also enjoy eating peanuts in the shell.

Quick-Clean® Mesh Peanut offers the following features:

  • Removable Quick-Clean® bottom allows for easy cleaning
  • Heavy die-cast metal cap and base
  • Peanut diverter to evenly distribute the peanuts
  • Durable mesh
