Bring more birds to your garden with our wheat free bird food blends. A Little Bird Company make it simple to care for the little birds throughout the seasons.
WHICH BIRDS CAN YOU SEE FROM YOUR WINDOW?
Better food means more birds
When you started feeding the birds in your garden, you imagined blue tits, great spotted woodpeckers, goldfinches and crows, but all you seem to see are pigeons, magpies, crows and a patio covered in mess and weeds.
It's all down to the bird seed you put out. Cheap bird food is full of wheat to bulk it out, but little birds don't eat these ingredients. As well as that, cheaper blends contain entire seeds (husks included). In a bid to remove the hard husks with their tiny beaks, the little birds end up making a mess beneath the feeder (and the de-husked seeds drop to the floor, leading to weeds). All that time at the feeder leaves the little birds vulnerable to predators too. Bigger birds like pigeons love the wheat, maize and millet in cheaper blends. But the bigger birds scare off the little birds, who give up and seek out better food elsewhere. It can all be fixed with the right bird seed.

WE MAKE IT SIMPLE TO FEED THE BIRDS
Feeding the birds doesn't have to be complicated
Most bird seed manufacturers offer different foods to attract different birds, as well a blend for summer and one for winter. We send out one seasonal bird food blend which we adjust every month, meaning less waste for us as a manufacturer and you as a customer.
Simply choose how much bird food you wish to order and we'll do the rest.
If you are just getting going with feeding the birds, our Little Beaks subscription is the perfect place to start. 1kg of bird food gives you enough to put out a handful of bird seed every few days. As word gets out that your garden is the one to visit and you start to see more birds flocking in, you can upgrade to a bigger bag. Our Little Beaks subscription comes packaged in compostable, plastic free packaging.
"Our garden birdlife is very content"
"A bumper bag for some hungry families!We have subscribed to the seasonal bag for the last couple of months. Our garden birdlife is very content with the food! It's been much more convenient for us than travelling to our local pet shop, and probably a similar price, plus plastic free!"
"The best bird food out there"
"So glad I found this new company. Birds immediately devoured the lot and left no mess. So while it gets eaten quickly there isn’t any thrown on the floor or stuck in the feeder to go mouldy which can be dangerous for wild birds. I think it’s the best bird food out there right now and I’ve tried all of them. Love that the food is adjusted for the seasonal needs of wild birds too."
"I'm totally delighted!"
"I’ve seen such a range of birds since replacing the food I was using with A Little Bird Company's mix…it really has made a huge difference. We’ve had birds I’ve not seen in a garden for a while making a comeback so I’m totally delighted."
PREMIUM BIRD SEED
Wheat free means no waste
We only use the ingredients we know the wild birds eat, meaning less wasted food and no seedlings beneath your feeder. Bird feed from A Little Bird Company is carefully adjusted throughout the year to give the birds the nutrition they need as they nest, breed, moult their feathers and survive the cold winter weather. We vary the ingredients and their quantities throughout the seasons.

MEET THE MAKER
Hi, I'm Clare
I believe you can look after smaller birds in urban gardens if you feed them the right foods, and that’s why I started A Little Bird Company.
Frustrated with the pigeons taking over our garden (and the weeds in my flower bed), I set about combining bird food ingredients to try to attract more variety and abundance to our bird feeder. Over time I improved on my bird food blends and shared them with family and friends and my hobby became a small business.
I love helping my customers support dwindling wild bird populations in the UK.If you want a busy garden, buy my wild bird food subscription. In a couple of clicks you'll have fresh, seasonal bird seed in compostable packaging delivered to your doorstep.
