Seed Blends

When you visit any grocery, hardware or big retail store, buried in the back of the pet food section you’ll find some inexpensive wild bird seed that might look pretty good in the package. However, what you don’t know is that most discount seed is full of cereal grains and fillers that birds won’t eat, like milo, wheat, oats, barley, flax, rapeseed/canola. You also don’t know how long that seed has been sitting around.

Wild Birds Unlimited McKinney is dedicated to offering fresh, top quality seed—the best in the market. Our exclusive seed blends are made from 100% edible seed and have been selected for the feeding preferences of our local birds. No cereal fillers—just fresh, high-quality seed your birds will love. We also carry a wide variety of individual seeds that attract specific types of birds.

Each of our blends is locally selected to meet the regional and seasonal needs of the birds. We do not include filler grains like oats, wheat and milo that decrease the price per pound of a mix, because these filler seeds are less attractive (or not attractive) to birds. Because there is no wasted seed, our blends actually end up costing less to use while attracting more of the birds that you want to watch.

 

WBU No-Mess Blend NM CD: No shells. No mess. 100% edible. This new blend contains more peanuts and has added calcium to help bone development and egg production. Being millet free ensures it flows easily through your feeders and discourages unwanted ground birds as very little makes it to the ground from the feeder. WBU No-Mess Blends are great near flower beds, patios and decks. Our unique No-Mess Blend bird seed features seeds that have had their shells removed so only the meat of the seed is left. No hulls on the seeds makes for tidier feeding, since there's no debris on the ground to clean up. Pound for pound, our No-Mess Blend bird seed offers the best value because you do not pay for uneaten seed waste. The birds eat everything. Buying one bag of our No-Mess Blend is roughly the equivalent of buying almost two bags of a seed blend with shells.

Ingredients: Sunflower chips, peanuts, and calcium

Bag Sizes: 5 lbs and 20 lbs.

WBU Finch Blend: Finch Blend features Nyjer® (thistle) and fine sunflower chips to create our finches’ favorite blend. Nyjer's® high oil content makes it an excellent energy source for active birds. Hulled sunflower seeds have a high oil content and provide birds with an extra kick of energy. Our WBU Finch Blend is best used in our specially designed finch feeders. It is important to keep the food fresh because finches can be picky 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 look for fresher forage. Replace Nyjer® in feeders every three to four weeks if it is not being actively eaten. Store your Nyjer® in an airtight container for a longer shelf life and buy in quantities that will be used up in a few weeks. Also make sure to mix the seed in your feeders around if there is not much seed activity. If you feeder allows for it filling you feeder from the bottom is the best way to ensure you are cycling your seed to keep it fresh.

Approximately 90% of Eastern Gray Squirrels and Red Squirrels do not eat WBU Hot Pepper Products.
