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 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 RateAn easy way to set up the hummer bar
After reading reviews about how difficult this was to set up after receiving it as a gift, , I found it was not difficult at all! I have 2 extra feeder hanger hooks that I put over a low branch of a tree. I placed them the length of the feeder apart and the top ends of the cords on these hooks. I eyed it to level it, then slowly filled it to a little over half full. It is very easy to adjust the cords to level it by eye during the filling when there is liquid inside of it, just eye it from the bottom of the flower ports on each end! I’ve only had it up for a little over a week, but the hummers have found it and use it almost as much as the feeders I have up for years, which are still there. No trouble with leakage yet!
Review RateTHE WORST feeder money can buy
Holy Moly....no way to this god awful feeder. I have been a loyal hummingbird feeder and PP customer for over 20-years. I know feeders well and wanted to try something NEW. DON'T This bar is a nightmare to set-up, fill-up, and then clean? OMG, I cannot imagine. I wish that I could upload a photo that would show you mine that I just put up yesterday FILLED with ants dead and alive. Not to mention the spilled nectar all over me and the ground, the fight I got in with my husband putting this up, the clothes that were sticky and needed a wash.... Never again....Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We are very sorry for this experience! If soaking the feeder was unsuccessful, we recommend using warm water and dish detergent to clean the reservoir.

Review RateDifficult to set up
This is extremely difficult to set up. It is tricky to get the cords at the correct level in order to balance out the sugar water without having two people fixing it. Even after that, it suddenly tipped and all the nectar drained out. I was hoping the hummingbirds would love this new feeder but since I can’t manage to get it put up correctly, I’ll have to return it.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateToo messy
Way too difficult to set up. Difficult to get level, then I realized I put it too high for me to easily refill. Huge mess even with refilling it after set up. The food just flows from one side to the other spilling out of the top holes at the end of each side. How do I clean it without taking it down and going thru all of this again?-I’m not going to take my garden hose and get everything around it wet or covered in sticky residue just to clean it either. Too much time and mess for me-this will be going in the trash before the end of summer.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback! For the best results, we recommend filling the feeder half full. To clean, we recommend soaking all parts of the feeder and washing it with warm water and dish detergent.

Review RateTwice-weekly cleaning with this design???
This took a little extra work to set up, but it wasn’t terrible. I quickly discovered that it had to be hanging level before it is filled. But now I have to clean it! Instructions say twice a week. It’s not designed to be easily removed or emptied. There’s going to be a sticky mess. I don’t think it’s going to last the summer.Response From Perky-Pet®Elizabeth : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing your feedback. If there is still nectar in the feeder when its time for a cleaning we suggest placing a container or bucket under one end. Then, open the cap and tip the feeder to allow the nectar to drain into the container. Please contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
Bought this and have not had 1 bird come to it.They prefer the old bottle methodResponse From Perky-Pet®Elizabeth : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for letting us know! When introducing a new feeder it is important to keep in mind that birds are creatures of habit. It may take some time for them to become accustomed to a new food source in their environment. Temporarily removing an established feeder can help aid in this transition. Please contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) and we will be happy to offer assistance.

Review RateFun change from the usual feeder.
A bit awkward to set up, but once it's up the hummers love it. Sad point is that the local bear loves it too. He's managed to drink it dry twice without ruining it, but I think it only has one more life.
Review Ratepositive and informational
Not my favorite. It is difficult to put in a position to be balanced so that it won't leak. So far the the hummingbirds are not very interested. But maybe in the future. I think my Hummingbirds are a bit scared so far. My feeder doesn't leak as was previously reported and it helps to have a second person to assist in the initial placement. I am happy with the product and will allow a full season to allow my humming birds to make theirs. So far I get 1-2 hummingbirds a day to try it. So it is getting more attention, happy happy

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.
