Hazelnuts In Shell
Changes to bulk nut orders:
Due to the change in location of My Parrot Shop, we have had to make some reluctant changes to our bulk nut orders – if you are wishing to purchase more than 5 kg of nuts please contact us at [email protected] or call us on 0436 393 511. Unfortunately, bulk nut orders will not be included in the $100 free shipping and will incur a shipping cost.
A hazelnut is the nut of a hazel and is also known as a cob nut or filbert nut according to its species.
The nut is roughly spherical to oval (15-25mm long and 10-15mm in diameter) with an outer fibrous husk surrounding a smooth shell. The kernel of the seed is edible and used raw or roasted in many commercial foods.Hazelnuts are rich in fibre vitamins and minerals and contain no cholesterol making this a fantastic nut choice. The sometimes hard and impenetrable shell makes the hazelnut a must for all large parrots as you watch them trying to crack the shell to eat the tasty ovoid nut inside.
Share and share alike: Because all the nuts and seeds provided by My Parrot Shop are of the highest human grade there's no reason why you can't partake in the nut and seed bounty too. And why not? They're not only healthy but totally scrumptious as well!
