Nyjer Seed is the absolute favorite of Finches, such as the American Goldfinch, House Finch, Purple Finch, Pine Siskin and other small Songbirds. This tiny delicacy is used in Finch Feeders which have smaller holes and tiny perches â perfect for the Finches but discouraging to larger birds.

About the quality of the product I can only say "my customers love it" and there is no better price anywhere for a similar product. Before buying 50 pounds my local Home Depot sells small bags of the same brand, and it's very easy to see if the food will be popular. If you don't see this kind of bird around, give them a week....they will find the food and flock from "0' to over 50 in a week, my neighbors are feeding them too because "they are so cute"....a little bigger that hummingbirds. Everything was very easy. I always have at least "good service", and many many times "great service" from Home Depot, either thru the web site or at "my store". This was "great service" for the product, price, shipping time, receiving condition, and customer service at pick up. I score the total experience A+ ! Thank you
Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Good Size & Weight, great price
I love watching birds, and wanted to give my indoor cats something to watch too, so I bought feeders I could hang off the eves of my house, but I didn't want seed that would spout in my beds. I was also really just interested in the smaller birds; Finches, Chickadees . . . I discovered Nyler seed was exactly what I was searching for, but the thought of spending a fortune was not appealing either, and this food was expensive at every place I looked, until I found the Home Depot site. I bought this 50 lb bag to get me through most of the summer, and I was thrilled with the price. I am attracting the small birds I was hoping for, and my cats are very entertained. I am also getting 0% growth in my beds. I would highly recommend this seed to anyone.
This is really the best price I was able to find for bulk nyjer seed in a 50lb. bag and FREE SHIPPING is the kicker for such a heavy order. Also, I have bought this type of seed in bulk 50lb. bags before and there were (as I kind of expected) some small sticks in the bag with a low quality seed. This seed is exceptionally clean which is a plus as seed with sticks damages the nylon mesh 'socks' we use to feed wild finches. Also, this seed rivals the quality of smaller clear plastic retail bags of seed I have purchased with respect to the look and smell of the product. Overall, a great deal and a quality product!
We've become pretty devoted to feeding the pretty little finches who winter (spring, summer and fall) in our area. Feeding them from the 5lbs. sacks of nyjer was bcoming prohibitively expensive. They're HUNGRY little things, often going through a full feeder in just a couple of days!!! Being able to buy the seed in bulk for a resonable price is great. And having it delivered to the door for free is icing on the cake. Thanks for helping us take care of our feathered friends! Oh, we bought the feeder at Home Depot, too. Attractive and easy to fill!
Pros: good price

Review 5 for 50 lb. Nyjer Seed Wild Bird Food
from St. Peters, MO, USA
Age Range:55 to 64
I shopped this product all over the internet and felt that this was a very good price and product.
The key feature was the free shipping. I found the product for less on other sites but by the time you factored in the shipping charged (some of which were ridiculous) they were substantially more. Regarding the product.. if you are a bird watcher you can't go wrong with njyger seed for watching gold finch and similar birds. They love it! The only problem is that they eat it so fast! We have a three tube feeder and have literally had 15 gold finch on it at once!
We have purchased this economical 50 lb. bag of Nyger seed and our finches are happy and by their quick devouring of the seed are greatly enjoying it. Rather than make several trips to the store to replenish our quickly dwindling seed supply this spring and summer, we found that The Home Depot sold this large bag of seed online. It is delivered to the door with free shipping as well so its a win-win for both us and our feathered friends!
I go through nyjer seed as if the local finches haven't eaten in weeks. This is the best price I have found for a large quantity bag. I prefer not to go to the store every two weeks to buy 10 lb bags. Plus this 50 lb bag is delivered to my doorstep. Even with delivery added, it is still a great deal and the quality is excellent. I pour the seed into a smaller dispenser for easy filling of the feeders.
Our birds empty our thistle feeder 2-3 times a week and buying small bags of Nyjer seed locally was getting awfully expensive.($3.00-$4.00 per pound). Buying a 50 lb. bag from the internet lowered the cost to approximately $1.00 per pound. There was no delivery charge or tax added and the bag was delivered directly to my house in less time than was estimated when I placed the order.
This is the best buy going for bird lovers. Easy to handle, packed well, quick delivery to the front door; it doesn't get any better than this. I seperate it into used plastic buckets for storage, but that was easy to do and tmakes it more manageable. This was the first time i even thought about getting it on line and couldn't believe it was available like this!

Review 10 for 50 lb. Nyjer Seed Wild Bird Food
from Nashville, TN, USA
Age Range:55 to 64
Home Improvement Profile:Other
Great product and value with convenient home delivery.
You'll attract all kinds of finches from blocks around when you fill your feeders with Nyjer seed. Their red and yellow plumage and lovely song will fill your backyard. You'll need the 50-lb. bag available with free delivery from Home Depot. And when some of the seed spills (as it inevitably will), it doesn't germinate. No more weeding all around your feeders!
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Clean, High Quality
This is the Best Deal on Internet for Nyjer Seed for small song birds with free shipping. With Home Depot's free shipping their Nyjer Seed is about $28 cheaper than any place you'll find. The average price for 50-pounds with shipping is about $92-$100...so at about $65 with free shopping this is the best deal you'll find on this normally very expensive seed.
Pros: High Quality, Good Size & Weight, very clean with no filler junk
With the current high price of seed…this allows us to feed our goldfinces for months and months. Delivery was an added plus! The seed comes just a little on the dirty side, but the birds are not complaining….not at all. If you add a gurgling fountain, it won't take long for the habit of multiple baths a day to become part of their routine.
Unbeatable price! I used to buy bird seed in ten or twenty pound bags since it was the best deal I could find. The 50 pound bag of seed from Home Depot was almost half the cost of what I was used to buying--for the same quality of bird seed. With free shipping right to my door it is an unbeatable deal. I highly recommend it.
At a buck per pound this was the best value I could find anywhere. The quality of the seed is very high; there are no other seeds or debris mixed in with the nyjer as you often find with other brands. This is the first year I've put a finch feeder out and we've been amazed at all the brightly colored birds it attracts.
Excellent product at the best value! I buy 1 bag per month to feed several varieties of beautiful finches. Gold and House finch especially love this nyger seed! But morning doves and other larger birds hang under the feeder to catch the fallen seed. I even had an Oriole try this seed. Thank you Home Depot!!!
This seed has a little more chaff than the last 50lb bag I bought from a competitor last year but it's not enough to worry about. What is important is that the birds like it, and boy do they. I have to fill the feeder daily. If HD keeps it's price competitive, I'd definatley buy more from them.
Buying in bulk is the most economical way for us to feed our army of finches. They love this seed which we dispense via two hanging wire mesh cylinder feeders. To maintain freshness until use, we store the seed in a plastic storage container with a sealing lid which we also got at Home Depot.
I started to wonder if I could afford feeding all my little feathery friends as they go through so much seed, until I realized buying it in bulk from Home Depot (with free shipping!) was so much more affordable.
My little guys are loving me and the seed! See it's almost gone again!
If you love your backyard birds and don't like to see their feeder go empty, then this is the bag for you. You cannot find a better deal- $1.06/ lb and free delivery to your front door! I store mine in a gamma seal dog food container and it stays fresh until I'm ready for my next batch!
