Perky-Pet® Hummerbar® Hummingbird Feeder—2 ft
Perky-Pet®'s horizontal-hanging 2 Foot Hummerbar® Hummingbird Feeding Tube offers a revolutionary way to feed more hummingbirds at one time.
Nectar filled hummerbar® is a 2-foot plastic tube offering 22 feeding ports and, when compared to other hummingbird feeders, is easy to clean. Patented feeder hangs horizontally while delivering plenty of nectar for hummingbirds. Feeder ports are made of plastic molded in red, a color proven to attract hummers. Each port is spaced just right to allow hummingbirds to feed side-by-side!
The feeder is built of a shatter-resistant clear plastic feeding tube, which allows you to easily monitor nectar levels.
With Perky-Pet®'s Hummerbar®, you get the ultimate hummingbird feeder!
How to hang the Hummerbar®
- Remove an end cap.
- Remove nectar-pouring funnel from tube.
- Replace the end cap.
- Select an outdoor area to hang the Hummerbar®.
- Hang using loops at end of hanging cords—make sure the feeder is low enough to access for refilling and cleaning.
- Level the Hummerbar® by adjusting its cords. Slide cord locks up and down as needed to level.
- Remove rubber stopper from nectar basin and insert funnel.
- Fill about 1/4th full with Perky-Pet® hummingbird nectar. Compare each end by eye. If nectar is pooling to one side, then adjust cord locks again.
- Once nectar is evenly distributed, continue to fill nectar basin until half full. Do not overfill.
- Remove funnel, insert rubber stopper.
The best hummingbird nectar uses a 100% sucrose formula, which hummers prefer because it is easy to digest. All Perky-Pet® Hummingbird Nectar uses a 100% sucrose formula.
Never fill the Hummerbar® more than half-full. Overfilling the Hummerbar® can cause the feeder to leak.
If a 2-foot Perky-Pet® Hummerbar® isn't enough for your hummers, then try the the 4-foot version. With 44 feeder ports on the 4-foot version, you can feed even more hummingbirds.

Review RateSo far, it's ok. Time will tell if the hummingbirds come to it.My original package was missing a hanging piece but that was not a problem, Perky Pet took care of that. The end pieces do leak so my original choice to hang it didn't work. Now it is relocated but the hummingbirds have not found it yet. We also hung the old feeder back so the birds hopefully will find the new one. I hope it is going to work well.
Review RateInnovate to UseAt first I tried to put this up using the strings that were included. But I could never get it to level and the nectar kept spilling. I bought the additional essentials kit which allows it to be attached to a window, but I didn't really like that idea as I try to keep them out in the flower garden that is for butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. What I cam up with was a large trellis and some pieces of 2x4 to attach the bar holders to the trellis. Now it is more sturdy and should be able to last awhile without the spill and mess.
Review RateBest Hummer feederMy Hummingbirds love this feeder and I know it is their favorite because I have 6 other types of feeders out and this is the one they frequent most. I had my first one so long that it finally started to leak so I just bought another one. It is awesome!
Review RateLost My Business
As a former engineer, I had a very difficult time mounting this product - it took me over a month work out how to hang it with the string provided. Once I was finally sort of successful, the fluid still wanted to sag to a low end. After leaving it hung for about 2 weeks, no hummingbirds came to it at all - even though I put it right in the same spot as where a previous feeder was hung and the birds clearly frequented. Of course this was then past the product 30 day warranty so I was out the money, and Perky Pet was not understanding of the situation nor the mounting time involved. Due to amount of business I gave them during the previous 6 months, and their inflexibility over the situation with them standing rigidly behind their policy and this poorly designed product, they have lost me as a customer forever. I hope it was worth it.
Review RateI can live with it's Pros and ConsI purchased the 4 ft. model. ($20 on sale at Dixieline Lumber)
Yes, the sticker was not thought out, very difficult to remove even with Goo Gone. Glad they resolved that problem.
My rubber stopper ends did not leak, but are difficult to clean.
Needs to be in shade or the "mold" will build up quickly.
I purchased a 2 ft bottle brush from the 99 Cent store, makes cleaning much much easier. You have to take it down for cleaning.
I only use 2 cups of nectar (water + .5 cups of sugar) to avoid spillage out of the feeder flowers. Install it where you can refill it in place without taking it down.
If replacement rubber end stops were available, I would cut my 4 ft model into (2) 2 ft models. My hummingbirds are aggressively territorial, so two locations would be better. For all the other pieces needed for 2nd feeder I can fabricate.
I have used it for 6 months and have not seen any ants or bees feeding on it. Hummingbirds love it because I have 4 nests in my backyard. NOTE: The area around the nests are extremely covered in black spots (baby poop).
That's my take on it folks.
leaks on both ends; wind cause too much swaying and spilling ; not sure it's going to be fun to watch and enjoy; would like a refundResponse From WoodstreambrandsRachel : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are so sorry to hear about this! We do advise keeping all feeders as far away from windy spots and high trafficed areas as possible to prevent leaking. It is good to know this feeder is covered by a 30-day return policy! We will reach out to you privately in regards to your refund.
Review RateGood but a few issues
Love the feeder, I have 2. They were difficult on initial setup but after that no problems. The hummers go to them as well as my traditional feeders. Need replacement stoppers for the ends and fill hole but they seem to be unavailable.
Review RateDO NOT BUY PRODUCT - STICKER/ADHESIVE PROBLEM
Purchased this locally and doubt they will take it back as returns have to be in same condition as when purchased. The sticker is very difficult to remove, only to find the adhesive below is a permanent fixture. Nothing I have tried will remove it. This is so Hummingbird unfriendly/safe that I would not recommend this as a good buy for your hummers. I sure wish I had found this feedback prior to buying this bar. It would have saved me a lot of hassle and the $20.00 price tag which could have gone to other hummer products.

Review RateDo Not Buy
Don’t buy.. not worth the money. -you can’t remove the adhesive from the label so dirt, pollen, you name it sticks to it -it leaks, and the hummingbirds can’t actually empty it -the remaining nectar goes everywhere when you try to take it down for cleaning unless you’re gifted enough to keep it perfectly balanced while doing so. -it is impossible to clean the entire length of it -it grows mold faster than any other feeder I’ve ever had. Long story short - Do Not BuyResponse From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative

Hummingbird Feeders - FAQs
Q: What else do I need to know about hanging a Hummerbar®?
A: Make sure the Hummerbar® is level. This will be the key to enjoying your Hummerbar®. If the feeder isn't level, then nectar can ooze out of its feeder ports. The best way to level the feeder is to use a "construction level" as you work on placing it. Start by leveling it by sight, then use the tool to help you make additional adjustments.
Use the easy-sliding locks on each cord to fix the feeder into place. If those locks stay in place, your Hummerbar® should be "just right" every time.
Q: Should I "test" my Hummerbar® to see if it's level?
A: Instead of dealing with sticky nectar, try testing it with some water. After leveling it, pour some water into the Hummerbar®'s nectar basin. If the liquid distributes evenly along the Hummerbar®, it's ready to take nectar. If the water pools in one end, you need to work on leveling the Hummerbar® again. Once it appears to be level, dump the water and add your Perky-Pet® nectar!
Q: Do you fill the Hummerbar® to the top?
A: Never fill your Hummerbar® all the way to the top. First, you should only fill the Hummerbar® with as much nectar as your hummingbirds will eat in two days. Secondly, you should only fill about half of the Hummerbar® nectar basin—any higher and you could risk spilling nectar. Don't worry about the hummers though. The basin size was set to match the length of a hummingbird's tongue!
Q: What's the cleaning schedule for my Hummerbar®?
A: Clean the Hummerbar® every two days to keep mold from forming. On especially cool days, you can let it sit a day or so longer.
Q: Why is nectar leaking from the feeder ports?
A: Two things could cause your Hummerbar® to leak from its feeder ports. Did you overfill it? Remember to never fill a Hummerbar® more than half-full. Also, are you sure the feeder is level? This could cause leakage out of one end of the Hummerbar®. Try re-leveling it.
Q: Why is nectar leaking from the end caps?
A: If this is happening, just try pushing the end caps fully into the Hummerbar®. Each end cap should seal around the end of the Hummerbar®. After any leak, you may want to wipe the feeder down with a wet cloth.
Q: Should I take my Hummerbar® down when bad weather is coming?
A: High winds could cause your Hummerbar® to start swinging. The sloshing action could cause nectar to leak out.
Q: I want to bring even more hummingbirds. Any tips?
A: You can bring more hummingbirds to your yard by adding hummingbird-friendly flowers, including zinnias, butterfly bushes, columbines and salvias. Also make sure you have a good source of water for hummingbirds and other birds.
