We sell birdseed at the Schrader Center! And not just any old birdseed. Our seed is made from the stuff birds love to eat! We have premium quality ingredients at the best possible prices. Our seeds do not include fillers or pesticides. Our staff has worked to develop two special mixes that are guaranteed to attract birds to your backyard feeder. Our Oglebay Best is a mix of black oil sunflower, white millet, striped sunflower and safflower seeds. Our Oglebay Divine is a mix of the same seeds, plus peanut chunks. Our specialty mixes will attract birds like blue jays, chickadees, cardinals, finches, grosbeaks, juncos, sparrows, nuthatches, titmice and woodpeckers.
Our Black Oil Sunflower is the #1 choice for backyard birds and is high in quality proteins and essential oils. We also carry Nyjer Thistle, imported from Asia and Africa. This tiny, black seed is heat sterilized to prevent seed germination. It is a favorite of finches with its high calorie count and oil content. Birds love our Striped Sunflower seed for the same reason that it’s popular with humans–high levels of protein, carbohydrates and essential fats and oils. Our Sunflower Chips are the only true no waste, no mess feed available. With almost no shell, you get more feed per pound and no messy hulls to clean up. We also carry suet cakes in peanut, wild bird and woodpecker blends. The suet cakes consist of rendered beef fat and a mix of seeds, grains and vitamins. These are our most affordable feeding option for birds.
Over the years, we’ve learned that the better the seed, the more fun you’ll have watching the birds, and your annual bird feeding costs will be lower. Plus, Oglebay Institute members get a 10% discount! The annual Oglebay Institute bird seed sale has been a tradition for more than 50 years, and the proceeds support environmental education programming for Ohio Valley schools. Stop by and pick up birdseed for your backyard birds.
