Review RatePerky-Pet™ - Perky-Pet® Evenseed™ SiloThis is my Mom's (and her bird's) favorite bird feeder and at age 95 she has had a bunch of different feeders. We use it to feed shelled sunflower seeds and it is always covered with birds. When a squirrel knocked it down and broke off a perch I had to hunt for another just like it and was so glad it was still made. This time I bought LOTS of extras so Mom's favorite feeder will always be visible for her.
Review RateIngeniousAnd so practical, too. Whoever designed this clever, well-constructed EVENSEED SILO feeder deserves an award for creativity. Have had two for about 5 years, and aside from periodic cleaning & drying, both have been "open for business" 24/7 all year long, withstanding even blazing hot and freezing cold weather extremes near Cleveland Ohio, close to Lake Erie. They're holding up well, but just received two new ones as backups, in case they're ever discontinued. (Can't imagine that happening, but feel better having extras.)
For birds smaller than Cardinals (such as Finches or Sparrows) at 15" high---plus about another 1" with roof/cover---can easily be filled with three different seeds by holding upright for top and bottom compartments, and tilting slightly for the middle one. Have used black oiled sunflower, thistle (just to feeding level---not to the top), and different varieties of standard mixes, but most often fill all compartments with a standard mix.
Best way to clean is water-hosing outside, then placing on their side in a sink, stationary tub or bathtub, and swishing sideways in sudsy (dish detergent) warm water, then allowing to soak for a few minutes. If necessary, narrow long-handled brushes, toothbrushes, or implements such as wooden skewers or even twigs from trees are helpful to get into corners for any stubborn seed residue buildup. Rinse well and allow to air-dry before filling. (Stuffing paper towels into feed openings to absorb residual rinse water can speed up drying time.)
A **Special Thanks** to friendly, helpful Denice (?... can't read my scribbled notes) who was nice enough to measure this feeder since I wanted to make sure these new ones were the same size as the ones from five years ago, before ordering.
Ordered, and recently received. The same GREAT Perky-Pet Evenseed Silo bird feeders!
Review RateAmazon ReviewSmall - Has to be filled daily as it does attract a lot of birds, if you want to spend less time filling, buy the larger version, but I warn you, it attracts even more birds!
Review RateAmazon ReviewSold mine when I sold my house.. need to get another. I am soooo glad I found this feeder again. did a search in Google Images to find one. When I sold my house last summer, I foolishly left this feeder hanging. Now I have another house, spring is on it's way and I need another one. What I liked best is that you can fill it up, and all six feeding places have seed still in them as the birds gobble them down from all three levels. Works much better than a single tube feeder (where you are reduce to only 2 feeding places when the tube gets low but not empty yet. I am ordering two, so I am sure to have an extra if I ever sell this house?
Review RateAmazon ReviewGreat feeder, one of a kind. All of our birds use it. Even those that are just supposed to be tray feeders
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis feeder is very easy to fill, and the birds love it. Allows more birds to be at the feeder, and they take full advantage of that. It is the perfect size for hanging inside an empty birdbath, which catches all of the uneaten seed. Then even more more birds can root around at the bottom, and no seed goes to waste
Review RateAmazon Review, Does the job wellThe feeder is up and easy to fill. As the lower level fills up, then the next level fills up and then the top level. The seeds stay dry, and the squirrel has not been able to figure it out. I am very happy with it.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comLove this bird feeder! It's easy to fill and the "raised" openings prevent the seed from falling out. It is designed to hold three different types of bird seed, but I've been using only one type of seed. Five finches have been feeding at one time; the grosbeaks, nuthatches and chickadees love it also. The squirrels have a hard time reaching into the side openings to get the seed, however, they've figured out how to slide the top up to get at the top seed holder. I suppose some type of weight could be added to the lid to prevent it from being lifted. I just purchased the same type of feeder for my mom to enjoy as well.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comGood quality feeder. Nice selection of smaller / midsized birds. We've had everything from gold finches to red headed woodpeckers to blue jays, but it's difficult for birds any larger (even a little difficult for blue jays). Not squirrel proof, but works well with a baffle.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comIt does attract a lot of birds, which my cats love. Only possible downside is that it is hard to fill without spilling quite a bit of bird seed. Other then that it rocks.
