Niger (Nyjer) is a little black seed extremely rich in oil, a nutritious energy source for birds and one of the most popular types of food for birds. Niger seeds are an excellent source of essential fatty acids, amino acids, fiber, and vitamins.
Because of its composition, Niger is particularly popular in winter when birds require food with more fat and calories. Proteins in Niger are also useful for the regeneration of feathers in the late fall and early spring.
