In operation since 1825, Henry bell is a fourth generation, family owned, british buisiness that takes pride in it’s dedication and work toward providing the best quality of feed possible for the wild bird population. In the early 1980’s they moved onto creating flakes and pulses for the pet and animal feed industry- becoming one of the leading suppliers. In the late 90’s, they expanded again moving onto create bespoke wild bird feed and packaging for a varied range of customers. And now? they have their feet well and truly in the door with the “Brand market” domain and we here at Monkton Elm are very excited to be able to offer you, our customer, a wide range of their products.
Fat balls are a staple feed and also, incredibly easy to use. Which is very good news seeings as they are highly nutritious and provide much needed energy for most garden birds. Henry Bell have developed their fat balls with quality ingredients in mind, this is to attract a wide range of birds and produce a fat ball that is incredibly key for many birds. Among the ingredients chosen are grain, fat and seed. Grain is rich in fibre, protein and B & E vitamins. Their Fat balls also include minerals, and small amounts of unsaturated fatty acids. All of which, free from nets (which could otherwise cause birds harm whilst feeding)
– Crude protein – 8.5%
– Crude fibres – 9%
– Crude fat – 19%
– Crude ash – 9%
Cereals, oils and fats, seeds and minerals.
DOING YOUR PART FOR YOUR BIRDS-
Due to an ever decreasing source of natural food supplies, it is becoming ever more critical for us to feed our wild bird population. But not only this, we must ensure that we offer enough water for both drinking and bathing, for the birds to keep on top of their hygiene. Again, due to the ever decreasing size of natural spots where our birds could naturally take care of these issues. It is also essential that we regulary change over the feeds within our feeders as they can become damp and encourage the spread of diseases amongst the wild bird population.
