Sunflower Hearts are sunflower seeds with the husks removed. Because the husks have been removed, birds don't need to discard them, meaning your garden will be kept cleaner and tidier, with little to no mess around your feeders.

Sunflower Heart Chips are a much smaller version suitable for smaller birds simply because they are smaller, making them easier to feed upon.
