Hello Harold,

Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry to hear the feeder did not perform as expected. While we do not recommend modifying the feeder, we are glad it is working well for you now. To deter squirrels, we recommend placing the feeder at least 12 feet away from squirrel launching points and four feet off the ground. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions or for additional assistance.

The perch is too short for most of my small birds. I notice they use any of my other feeders and they have trouble landing on this one. I would like to be able to replace it with another feeder. Disappointed. I called during your normal business hours and no one was there to take my call. Frustrated.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Birds are creatures of habit and can take time to adapt to a new food source. To help entice them to a new feeder, we recommend placing a shiny pie plate filled with bird seed under the feeder. Placing a fresh water source near the feeder also works well to attract the birds.

This feeder is covered by a 30 day return policy with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance. We are happy to help!

bad By G

The squirrel knocks the lid off and even at the lightest spring setting the squirrel is hanging there eating his fill!

Squirrels, Foiled again! By Cynscott
Sorry to say, I saw a squirrel happily upside-down and munching on sunflower seed this morning. The spring tension, while adjustable is not sufficient to close off a persnickety squirrel and spring back to allow birds full access to the opening. On the lightest tension, the top 30% of the opening remains covered. Maybe my Florida gray squirrels are in better shape, lighter weight, than your squirrels!

We are sorry to hear about this experience and appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback. If the squirrels are too light to pull the covers fully down over the ports at the lightest setting, try some of these squirrel-deterrent tips to keep them away.

Place feeders at least ten feet away from launching spots, such as trees or decks, and at least five feet above the ground. Use safflower seed (or add it into the mix). It is nutritious and attracts a large variety of birds, but squirrels dislike it. Add cayenne pepper to the seed. It will not affect the birds since they have no sense of smell or taste, but will repel squirrels. Install a baffler above or below the feeder.

Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance. Our feeders are covered by a one year replacement warranty.

Good customer service!! By Bee2
Ordered several bird feeders & bags of seed. Upon receiving our order, it was severely damaged. We were so disappointed, but not for long! After calling customer service everything was replaced within just a few days. What more could you ask for?

Not so happy By CKDJ
I had this feeder for 3 years and it wore out so I bought a new one at my local bird supply store. The quality has gone downhill in the past 3 yrs--the lid does not fit well. The slightest touch causes it to come loose & let rain into the food. Also, no matter how I adjust the springs the feeding holes are closed off. This is going back to the store. (Yes,to help with squirrel proofing I put a metal cone baffle over the top though I still find that occasional determined fellow hanging off one of the perches).
