Birds don’t want to feed from itResponse From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

They can be picky eaters and may take time to become accustomed to a new feeder in their environment. To help encourage them to try the feeder, we recommend temporarily removing established feeders. Please reach out to us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
Review RateIt's an ok feeder....
I just bought one and the squirrels are having a feast. I've set it on the lightest weight setting and they still are eating it. I even set it so it's not in a hole and they are still eating it. Maybe if you use a lighter spring action, the feeder might work.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RatePretty goodPretty good at keeping them out! Hang from a tree not a porch hook. Be aware...sneaky squirrels or something working on getting the top off :o(. They had previously stretched the spring for the top and Perky Pet was so great, they replaced it for me. Thanks Perky Pet!

Review RateGreat Product
I love this bird feeder. I just bought a replacement. I am still using my old one. I have had it for 4 years now. I leave it out in the winter as well and it still work fine. Very easy to full up. Love seeing all those birdies eat.
Review RateReally like this feeder; it is a good one.
I happen to really like this feeder. This is my third one. the first one lasted about 7 years and then the bottom fell off. my second one got really dirty on the inside plastic and i couldn't see the seeds to find out if it was empty. i tried cleaning it, but it didn't clean up well enough. so then i purchased my third one. i looked at a few different feeders, but i only like this one. i have seen a squirrel or two cling to the top, but then the outside metal frame pushes down and closes off the feeding openings, and squirrel jumps off. I recommend it.
Review RateSquirrels are too smart for this design
Bought this feeder yesterday. Filled with seed and hung on hook. This morning caught a black squirrel hanging upside down on the feeder chowing down on the seed. The squirrel has defeated the mechanism. Any suggestions?Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear about this! To further deter squirrels, we recommend hanging feeders 4 ft off the ground and 8 ft away from launching points. Our feeders are covered by a 1-year replacement policy. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for assistance, we're happy to help.
Review RateCan’t find seed that won’t come out
I have 2 of these but have not been able to find bird seed that doesn’t come out. My latest attempt was just sunflower seeds and they didn’t stay in. So aggravating!Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Hello Elizabeth - Thank you for sharing this feedback. This style feeder is designed to be used with a wide variety of seed types including black oil sunflower seed and mixed seed. While some spillage is to be expected with any feeder, it should not pour out. Please reach out to us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for assistance.
Review RateNo Parts Available
This feeder has an interior spring for the lid that prevents a squirrel from prying it off. That's a good idea, except that when it breaks, there aren't any replacement springs available from the company. I learned this in calling the company support line. I was advised to visit the local hardware store for a spring, but there wasn't anything close to what had broken. I won't be buying another one of these, it's too bad, as the birds seemed to like it, but the squirrel liked it even more!Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. We apologize that the spring became damaged. Our feeders are covered under a one year replacement policy. Please reach out to us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for assistance.
Review RateNot squirrel proof
So disappointed with this bird feeder. I really like the look of it but it is not squirrel proof at all. Twice now they have been able to get the bottom off and then the bird seed falls out. It was full this morning and by afternoon it was empty with the bottom piece on the ground and a squirrel there having a feast. Seems there should be a more secure way of fastening the bottom piece to keep it attached.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear the furry thieves are still stealing your birdseed! We recommend hanging feeders at least 4 ft off the ground and 8 ft away from launching points to deter squirrels from a life of crime. This feeder is covered by our 30-day guarantee and a 1-year replacement policy. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for assistance, we're happy to help.
