Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oceandarling Confirmed Wagner Product but ...
I've previously bought the Wagner Nyjer seed in the 10 and 20 pound bags. They come packaged in a plastic bag with zip button closures. The seed is dark brown, seems to have good oil content and is very clean. This 50 pound product is another story. It comes in a triple lined paper sack as the picture shows. The outer layer of paper is perforated. I had concerns the perforated bag would mean the seed was going to be dry. The seed inside is VERY dusty. I sent an email to Wagner to confirm this was their product, as their website does not show a 50 pound option. Wagner confirmed it is their "bulk" product. I'm not a fan of the dust. One of my feeders is shaped like a lighthouse and made of white wire. The dust is also something I take care not to breathe in while filling. That said, the birds don't seem to mind :D I go through about 2 pounds a day, so this 50 pound option with it's bulk pricing is the way to go for my budget. I am reusing the plastic bags from my previous purchases to store some of the seed. The larger bags are great for filling the feeders too. If you're new to Nyjer seed feeders, you'll find some of the seed escapes the wire until you get the feeder full. I put my feeders inside the bag and use a scoop for the seed. No more mess; works like a charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Graydawn I appreciate the price!
We've become pretty devoted to feeding the pretty little finches who winter (spring, summer and fall) in our area. Feeding them from the 5lbs. sacks of nyjer was bcoming prohibitively expensive. They're HUNGRY little things, often going through a full feeder in just a couple of days!!! Being able to buy the seed in bulk for a resonable price is great. And having it delivered to the door for free is icing on the cake. Thanks for helping us take care of our feathered friends! Oh, we bought the feeder at Home Depot, too. Attractive and easy to fill!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kenaltar The only deal out there!
With the current high price of seed…this allows us to feed our goldfinces for months and months. Delivery was an added plus! The seed comes just a little on the dirty side, but the birds are not complaining….not at all. If you add a gurgling fountain, it won't take long for the habit of multiple baths a day to become part of their routine.

Finches love this seed. It attracts many to our yard. Home Depot has the best price we have found.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nancy Unbelievable value for this bag of thistle
I started to wonder if I could afford feeding all my little feathery friends as they go through so much seed, until I realized buying it in bulk from Home Depot (with free shipping!) was so much more affordable.
My little guys are loving me and the seed! See it's almost gone again!

The 50 LB. NYJER SEED WILD BIRD FOOD has been great. View the video to get an idea of how the birds will flock to your seed. Keep in mind that I have been using this feeder for 4 months, as of fall 2014.

The goldfinches are now fat and happy. They can't wait for the feeder to be filled. Other finches love it as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by skinut Great price and free delivery
Smaller amounts are much more expensive per pound anywhere. Bonus is the free delivery. Appears that the quality is good - very little non-nyger material or twigs. Keeps our goldfinches pretty happy.
