Keeping Your Sweet Offerings Fresh Has Never Been Easier than with the Oriole Jelly Feeder Did you know that like hummingbirds, orioles have a sweet tooth? They do! What better way to attract them than by offering their favorite sweet treat – jelly! Other jelly feeders on the market expose the jelly to the elements, causing it to mold and spoil quickly. The Perky-Pet® Oriole Jelly Feeder has an inverted jelly jar, ensuring that your jelly is kept fresh and covered. The 32 oz jar can also be interchanged with most standard jelly jars. The built-in stirrer allows the perfect amount of jelly to be dispensed into the tray. In addition, this feeder boasts a vibrant orange color to draw more orioles to your yard!

cicrular feeding tray and perch
Circular Feeding Tray and Perches Orioles love to perch while they feed. This jelly feeder features a large circular feeding tray with a wraparound perch so your orioles have plenty of room to feast! Orioles are known to be attracted to the color orange – the tray’s vibrant hue is sure to catch the eye of passing orioles and draw them to your yard.

Jelly Remains Fresh Inside the Inverted Jar Jelly that is exposed to the elements quickly spoils and molds, which is bad for your birds. To keep your offerings fresh and protected from the elements, this feeder holds all of the jelly inside the inverted weatherproof jar so it lasts longer. In addition, the included bottle can be swapped with most 32 oz jelly jars, so there’s no need to scoop jelly when refilling. Remember to clean your feeder every few days to ensure that your orioles are receiving the freshest jelly supply.

Finches like it too! By Jo

Great feeder! This was my second one as I have so many finches who like it too. I was hoping to keep them and the orioles off the hummingbird feeders, but they visit them all.

Oriole's feeder By Lori

Very disappointed in this feeder. All it does is tip over. Would not recommend. I wish I could return for a different one.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Lori, We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more. The chains should allow the feeder to hang evenly.

Our feeders are covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year replacement warranty. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) so we can better understand the situation and provide assistance.

Great as Always! By Terri57

It's still a little early for this but my husband is looking forward to using this instead of the little container he used before. The quality is really good and it should hold up against some of the more feisty eaters.

Perky-Pet Oriole jelly feeder By Bryan Chunko
We love the fact of being able to screw a 32 ounce jar of jelly/jam onto the feeder
and then go outside to hang it. When the jar is empty just replace it with a full jar.
At first the orioles came one here or there for a couple of days in the evening and then by day five, many were coming thru ought the day.
My 75 year old friend seen his first oriole this weekend. Humming birds were seen feeding to. The knob on the bottom of the feeder that pulls the jelly/jam onto the tray is a great feature.
My wife was hesitant on purchasing this product. She is so happy I surprised her with it.

This bird feeder is so easy to use. Love that I can fill the jar that came with it or just simply attach my jar of grape jelly right to the feeder!!

Problem-free Oriole feeder By Ginnie
I bought one a month ago. It holds a full jar of grape jelly, so it lasts a long time before refilling. Liked it so much I bought another one for my son-in-law who also likes to feed birds and his orioles were coming to his hummingbird feeders.

Looks interesting By patches98
I bought this several weeks ago but it will be months before I get a chance to use it for Orioles. They migrate through here and I don't see them for very long. I hope they like the feeder.

Great idea, some difficulty By Berta
Love this concept, but had difficulty getting the jelly to actually feed into the tray. Solved this problem by removing the jar and just heaping grape jelly onto the tray! the birds went wild!

Looks attractive By Blondie
This feeder is for one bird. I have at least 5 and I have to continually turn the lever for more jelly to feed all. Too time consuming.

Q.Where can I buy the jelly feeder in Canada?

Typical Canadian retailers that carry our products include: Beaver Lumber, Canadian Tire, Home Hardware, Home Depot, Lowe's, and True Value. Please call the store first to see if the one near you carries this feeder or would be able to order it for you.

Q.Can anyone comment on bees overtaking the feeder. I am constantly fighting to get the bees off my jelly feeders. This one looks so amazing, but am curious about the bee situation. 

If bees are invading a feeder, we recommend temporarily removing the feeder for a few days. Then, rehang the feeder in a slightly different location.

Q.What do you do with the feeder if it rains, storms. Jelly is lost from tray?

We recommend hanging this jelly feeder in a sheltered area. It can also be brought inside if heavy rains are expected.
