Great Reasons to Use No-Mess
No Mess, No Fuss
Looking for a good reason to pay more for that birdseed without shells? We have 7!
Better Value for You
Since the seeds and nuts in our No-Mess blends have no shells, you are not paying one penny for shell waste. Every tidbit is fresh, fully consumable food for the birds. It takes almost two bags of a regular blend with shells to get as much edible matter as in one bag of a No-Mess blend.
Each of our blends is locally selected to meet the regional and seasonal needs of the birds. We do not include filler grains like oats, wheat and milo that decrease the price per pound of a mix, because these filler seeds are less attractive (or not attractive) to birds. Because there is no wasted seed, our blends actually end up costing less to use while attracting more of the birds that you want to watch.
No shells. No mess. 100% edible. Our No-Mess Blend is great near flower beds, patios and decks.
Our unique No-Mess Blend bird seed features seeds that have had their shells removed so only the meat of the seed is left. No hulls on the seeds makes for tidier feeding, since there's no debris on the ground to clean up. Pound for pound, our No-Mess Blend bird seed offers the best value because you do not pay for uneaten seed waste. The birds eat everything.
Seed without a shell typically will not germinate under your bird feeders.
No Grass-killing Seed Shells
Sunflower Seed shells contain compounds that, when left to accumulate beneath your bird feeders, can limit the growth of grass. When you use No-Mess, grass will grow better beneath your bird feeders!
Potential to Attract Birds that Typically Don't Eat Seed at Birdfeeders
Some birds don't have the type of beak that can easily open seeds with shells. The seeds and nuts in No Mess have no shells, making them easier to eat for birds like Bluebirds, thrushes, robins, creepers, thrashers, wrens, catbirds, mockingbirds, and more.
Less Energy Expenditure for the Birds
In the freezing days and nights of winter, survival is all about energy in and energy out. During short winter days, birds try to consume as much as they can to provide the energy to survive the frigid winter night. In spring and summer, breeding and raising young birds is a high energy expenditure activity for birds, as is the process of molting feathers.
Birdfeeders provide birds with an easy source of food, minimizing energy used in the search for a food source. When you fill your feeders with food without shells, you help minimize energy expenditures for birds that consume the shell-less foods.
A Great Alternative to Nyjer Seed (Thistle)
The goldfinches in my yard seem to prefer No-Mess over Nyjer. Feeding a No-Mess No-Millet blend in an Eliminator Squirrel Proof Birdfeeder or regular tube feeder on a baffled Advanced Pole System set-up can attract flocks of goldfinches.
