Jumbo pea nuts

FirecrackerFirecracker East Lancashire.Posts: 256

Im having trouble finding jumbo peanuts for my feeder, it's an American squirrel proof type,the only peanuts I can buy round here are so small when birds such as woodpeckers are on it the nuts just flow out. Plus I don't want the baby birds to get choked.Any ideas where I can get Large ones from?In winter I got a few bags but not enough to last.   Thanks in anticipationimage

    Try the RSPB site - if they don't have what you want you could try contacting them for advice - if they don't know I can't imagine that anyone else will

    Did you buy it in the UK?  If so I'd have thought the seller should have some idea where you can get suitable nuts image

    Good luck - let us know how you get on - squirrel proof feeders that work are a good find, so where to get the peanuts will be helpful to others too image
