Need some way to keep the barn from sliding end to end.The feeder is fine for small to medium birds but the bluejays cause the feeder to slide and that lets the seed pour to the ground. The wire on the feeder, slides thru the hook hanger (used to hang it). Any suggestions?Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Birds will vary in weight and size. If the feeder is tilting when blue-jays land on the perches, we recommend mounting the feeder on a pole. This will help to keep it steady and accessible for all birds.

I bought two of these a few months ago.Both have broken tabs where the clear hopper fits into the bottom.One did blow down in the wind but the other was pole mounted.I do have squirrels which jump onto the feeder but they did with my other plastic feeders that lasted 20 years through lots of wind and snow.Just not the quality I expected.Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Rateperky pets bird feeder
i love this bird feeder. even though it is plastic it is very sturdy. the birds love it. i am getting bigger birds with this feeder.
Review RateGoodJust the right size for a lot of birds to sit on. A little overpriced for me seeing that it's all plastic. The birds don't seem to care they are very happy with it. That's what matters the most. :)
Review RatePerky-Pet Seed BarnThis bird feeder is an exact replacement for one I had before. I like it, but more important, the birds like it!!!
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis feeder is big as the name suggest "barn feeder". It is easy to raise the roof like a hatch to add seeds. And with the long rectangle design with perches on both sides there is plenty room for several birds. One thing that I have noticed with this feeder is that both large and small birds use it at the same time. There's plenty of room and little birds are not intimidated or run off by the bigger birds.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI tried a much more expensive squirrel proof feeder first but the birds wouldn't come to it. As soon as I put out this feeder they swarmed in. Now it's not as sturdy as the other feeder but its not as cheap as it looks. I like the see through sides do O know when I have to refill and the roof is enough that the seed stays dry even during the hardest downpours. The squirrels do get into it so I tried the cayenne pepper in the seed but apparently my squirrels like it. Oh well.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe birds flock to this feeder! The small and medium size birds can easily use the perches, while the larger birds struggle a bit. (Larger being pigeon-size). I live where there is high humidity, so I don't fill the container with seed since it would get moldy. But, that's okay - I get to watch the birds go bananas each time I put seed out. It's a great size and great price. And, from the looks of it, it will last for years. I am definitely happy with this purchase.
Review RateAmazon Review, best ever!!!Easy to fill,,,,easy to clean,,,,and the birds like it. This is my third one, the lawn guys dropped one, the wind took the next one,,,,this time I ordered 2 to have an extra!!! I use it with that plastic dome to prevent squirrels from eating all the birdseed,,,glad this is available !
Review RateFinally a Made in the USA bird feeederLove this feeder. The clear plastic front and back is a bit more hefty than other feeders that seem to distort from the sunshine and sprinkler water. I also like the fact that the top is secure and can be clicked shut after filling so the wind does not blow it off and not to be found leaving the seed inside to get wet and moldy. You thought of everything. I did see 2 other cute ones, a log cabin and a red barn but the top where you fill them was not secured in any way and I knew that would come off in the wind. They should make a small hole and fasten one of those thin cables used for hanging on it and the actual feeder so that if the wind did blow it off it would not get thrown to the ground and lost in the snow and be gone forever. You did a GREAT job with this design. Thank you.
