Sunflower seeds & peanuts for birds

Post by tocyvi on Mon Dec 23, 2013 2:31 pm

In the past I have used the UK site for MedicAnimal for my purchases of sunflower seeds (20kg for £24.95) & peanuts (25kg for £49.92). I can no longer contact them by phone from France and when I e-mail them, I am quoted the prices from the French site: sunflower seed @ 35.03€ and peanuts @ 75.17€!!. Even taking into account the exchange rate from sterling to euro, this is a whopping mark-up. Has anyone else had the same problem and, if so, have you managed to find a way round it?

Alternatively, does anyone know a cheap source of the above, please?

It may pay you to buy those 5kilo bags from Cora that they have with the Halal stuff. They do big bags of nuts there. Peanuts of any type are really expensive now.

Hi Pogo
Thanks a lot for the link. I've just made an order and the total delivery charge for the whole order was £9.99. Sunflower seeds were £23.95 for 25kg and peanuts were an incredible £30.99 for 25kg.

Ive got a table full of food and wine, if thebirds will eat it, they can have it.
Saves me having it cold for the next 2 months.

Funnily enough, the birds did say that they wouldn't mind a bit of that roulade with a large portion of Christmas cake.

I bought some wild bird seed last winter then mixed it with duck fat from a tin of Confit de Canard and left it in the fridge to set. I put it in the little nets you get the wild bird food in and hung them up.

Mind you the cats can smell the duck fat and are really keen to get at it - so far without success!

Roulade has gone, do you think they'll take turkey, or is that canibalism? Got a couple of hundredweight of turkey. My good lady wife insists that we should have the Cyril Smith of turkeys, even though shes the only one who eats it. Mind you, the dog is looking hopeful!!

My apologies. I am not aware of the turkey's political leanings.
