Wakefield Virginia 20 LBS Bulk Shelled Animal Grade Red Skin Peanuts for Birds, Squirrels
Wakefield Peanut Company continues to cultivate a tradition of excellence that began more than 150 years ago when the first commercial peanut crop in the United States was grown a few miles west of our location. We hire only the finest American workers and are known around the Peanut industry for our ethical practices and excellent working conditions. All of our crop sold on this listing is from the freshest, most current crop available. Benefits for Wildlife: Wakefield is proud to offer our brand of premium-quality, raw, unsalted animal-grade shelled peanuts. Wakefield peanuts are a high-energy food source that provide animals with the essential fatty acids and protein they need in their diets. Peanuts can be fed to wildlife year-round and are perfect both in the long winter months, as well as in the spring/summer time when animals are post-rut and need to pack on additional weight. What Types of Animals Eat Wakefield Peanuts? Wakefield peanuts are a popular snack amongst many squirrels, birds, chickens, ducks, geese, deer, chipmunks, foxes, raccoons and other outdoor wildlife. Some species of birds that especially love them are Parrots, Towhees, Grackles, Crows, Blue Jays, Scrub Jays, Steller's Jays, Ravens, Sparrows, Woodpeckers, Cardinals, Dark-Eyed Juncos, Pyrrhuloxia, Titmice, Chickadees, Nuthatches, Wrens and Doves. Our 10lb inshell peanut bags are USDA inspected and meet all requirements for animal-grade peanuts. These peanuts are safe for animals to consume and a high-quality mix of medium and animal-size peanuts. We always recommend that you roast or boil the peanuts before feeding. To maintain best quality, store peanuts in a cool, dry place. For short term storage (a few days) keep at or below 60 F; for extended storage keep at 40 F or below (Peanuts keep fresh indefinitely stored in a tightly closed container in the freezer).
