Brown linseed, also known as flaxseed is a versatile and nutritious seed that can be used as bird food

Offering a variety of health benefits to your feathered friends, our Linseeds are rich in protein, fiber, and essential fatty acids, making it an excellent source of nutrition for birds. Here's a detailed guide on how to use brown linseed as bird food and the benefits it offers.

Linseed is a seed rich in valuable oils & popular with British finches. Seeds rich in essential oils are important when birds are moulting.

Nutritional Benefits of Brown Linseed for Birds

High in Protein: Brown linseed is a complete protein source, providing all the essential amino acids that birds need for growth and repair. It's particularly beneficial for birds that are growing or recovering from illness. Rich in Fiber: The fiber content in brown linseed helps to keep the digestive system of birds healthy, aiding in the prevention of constipation and promoting a healthy gut microbiome. Essential Fatty Acids: It contains essential fatty acids, which are crucial for the health of bird feathers and skin. These fats also support the immune system and overall well-being of birds. Vitamins and Minerals: Brown linseed is a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, which is essential for the health of bird eggs and feathers.

How to Use Brown Linseed as Bird Food

Whole Seeds: Brown linseed seeds can be fed directly to birds. They are easy to digest and provide a balanced diet. Sprinkle a small amount of whole seeds into the bird's food dish. Crushed Seeds: For birds that prefer a more crushed texture, you can crush the seeds using a mortar and pestle or a food processor. This makes the seeds easier to digest and can be mixed into the bird's food. Mixing with Other Foods: Brown linseed can be mixed with other bird foods, such as birdseed, millet, or oats. This ensures that your bird gets a balanced diet with a variety of nutrients. Soaking: Soaking the seeds in water for a few hours before feeding can make them more palatable and easier to digest for some birds.
