Five Stars “This feeder has some excellent features – bee guards on the "flowers" and the base contains the nectar so the yellow jackets can't reach anything. Good reservoir size, too. Very pleased with my purchase.” (Review from DebNoCo) Read More Reviews »

Disappointed with feeder model 209B By A&M

I bought two of your new feeders model 209B to replace my old ones model 209, because I cracked the glass. I am so disappointed and very sad because my hummingbirds can’t feed from it. At first I thought it was the bee guard, but after careful inspection I can see that the amount of nectar that is dispensed from the bottle is so small, along with the extended bee guard, makes it very difficult for the hummingbirds to reach the nectar, especially the smaller hummingbirds. I bought replacement flowers without the bee guard, but they are too small for the holes on the base of the 209B feeder. Please either offer the 209 model feeder again or at least make replacement flowers without the bee guard for the new feeder model 209B.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! This information is appreciated and has been shared with our Product Managers.

Our feeders are fully tested to ensure the hummingbirds are easily able to feed from the ports. The hummingbirds are more than likely hesitant to try the new feeder as they are creatures of habit and will prefer the older style that they are used to. We recommend allowing time for the birds to adjust to this new feeder.

Our Consumer Relations Team is happy to provide additional assistance! Please feel free to contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).

Birds like old feeder. New feeder bad design. By Isa

Easy to fill but bad design. The old feeders worked much better. The birds will always go the old feeder since they cannot get anything out of this new design. Like many have said previously, the feeder constantly has to be "burped" so the liquid drops. Unscrewing the bottle slightly does not help.

Cheapened design. By sam

The older versions of this model included a gasket between the glass cylinder and the feeding platform. The new models do not and they leak.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Elizabeth : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Sam,


Thank you for sharing your experience with this feeder. Like the older version the new design should not leak like this. To prevent a hummingbird from leaking we recommend protecting it from both wind and direct sun (the liquid will expand when heated). Also, because this is a bottom fill feeder it is important to invert the feeder quickly after filling it with nectar. Sometimes disassembling and reassembling a feeder can correct any mis-threading that might be causing the leak. If trying these tips do not stop the leak please contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973). We are happy to offer assistance.

Design needs to be improved By Nhscot

The feeder does stop ants but squirrels are constantly removing the flower heads . Bee guard is poorly designed and does not facilitate feeding.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! The information is appreciated and has been shared with our Product Managers. To deter squirrels, we recommend keeping the feeder at least 12 feet from any launching point (such as a deck, tree, or bush) and four feet off the ground.

Houston: you have a problem. By Swen

I replaced all my old perky pet glass feeders with the new ones (4). I like the easy cleaning design. The hummers use them ok. My complaint is the same as others I've read. They leak! Not only does it leave a mess, they must be refilled sooner because of the leakage.You have to make sure you burp them to get the air out or the birds don't get anything. I rated it a 3 because it is easier to clean. I can't believe these defects didn't show up if you tested them. You can do better than this

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Swen,

We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and are very sorry for this experience! Please note, the feeder should be kept out of the direct sunlight. While the nectar reservoir is glass, the base is plastic. As liquid gets warmer, it starts to expand which will cause this occurrence. To help the nectar flow more freely, we recommend un-tightening the bottle from the base very slightly.

Hopefully these suggestions help to provide resolution! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for further assistance. We are happy to help!

Hummers HATE this new design By KathyV

I used the original model 209 for over twenty years and had so many birds that people would come visit my house just to watch them. When one finally broke, I replaced it with this new design. What a disappointment! The birds simply refuse to drink form it. They still swarmed the old model feeders, but wouldn’t touch the new one. At first I thought the problem was the bee guards, which seemed to be causing them difficulty reaching down to the nectar. I took a Dremel tool and cut them off, but no change. Then I started to study the feeder and realized that the nectar wasn’t filling the well, so their beaks still couldn’t reach the food source. As others have said, you have to “burp” it, which then results in leaking. I have over 100 birds fighting for the old 209s, and no more than three birds sitting on the new one. And before a Perky Pet rep leaves the inevitable boilerplate reply to “give it time,” I’ve had this feeder up for a good six months now. Unscrewing the bottle ”slightly” results in leakage, so that’s also the wrong answer. This is a complete design failure. Period. Why not bring back the old design, or at least modify the current one? Look at all the negative reviews, not just here, but on every site that sells it. You are losing customers. People want the old one back! I, for one, will not buy any more Perky Pet feeders until I hear that the problems have been corrected. You had the best product on the market, and you ruined it. What a shame.

Dislike This Feeder Intensely By SusanB

This feeder does not work properly. I continually have to burp it, no matter how loosely I screw it on, to enable the sugar water to be available to the hummingbirds. Also, the hummers don’t like it as well as the previous model, #209. Please bring #209 back; it works so much better.

Bee guard deters hummingbirds By ReillyW

I wanted the glass feeder due to durability and ease of cleaning, and the wide mouth and pull apart bases are okay, BUT, my hummingbirds hate the bee guard on it. I bought several of these due to the large volume of birds that I feed. The hummingbirds prefer the old style flower/old style feeder. Please bring it back!!!

Hummingbirds are creatures of habit and may need some time to adjust to a new feeder in their environment. We recommend removing established feeders until the new one is being utilized to help aid this transition.

More water in the ant moat! By JB

Why the scallops in the top of the ant moat? It would hold more water without these. The wind blows alot at my home knocking out the water. I have duct taped underneath the hook hole , also taped over the "scallops" so they will hold more and I don't have to check them twice a day.

Miss the Older Model By Laura

I understand the desire to make the feeder ‘cleaning and filling friendly’ but I sure miss the old narrow mouth model. I never had any problems with them, and a good bottle brush kept them very clean. The newer models either leak, fall apart when full or do not burp( I had two from 2016 that had a silicone insert that would only work if you came by every hour and ‘burped ‘ it). I wish there were a way to find some of the older narrow mouthed models. I bet if you started making them again they’d be a bestseller! The birds far prefer them side to side as well.

We appreciate these comments! It's feedback like this that is used when determining what products to make available in the future. The information has been shared with our Product Managers.

Keeping the feeder out of the direct sunlight will help prevent it from leaking (as liquid expands when it gets warmer). If the base does not fill up with nectar automatically, we recommend unscrewing the bottle from the base very slightly; it may have too much of a vacuum seal.

Q&A
Q.Just purchased (2) PerkyPet Glass Hummingbird feeders from Farm & Fleet store in my area. I was setting them in place and dropped (1), breaking a few pieces off the top "ant moat", making it ineffective. I need to purchase just the "ant moat" and should probably get (2) while I'm at it. Ants are already bypassing the moat. How do I purchase? Thank You,
A.

We apologize as replacement parts are not available. However this feeder is covered by a 30 day return policy with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for further assistance.

Q.I just received my third feeder, of this model, in the hopes that the previous two were just faulty. All three feeders leak badly at the seam of the two part base, when hung. Why does this happen and how can I prevent it?
A.

We would recommend keeping the base and the bottle tightly assembled. The feeder should be quickly inverted upright after filling to form a vacuum seal. Also, where is the feeder hung/placed? We recommend keeping it out of the direct sunlight as liquid expands when it gets warmer.

Q.I have five glass bottle hummingbird feeders. The base on one cracked. Can I purchase a base for the narrow thread bottle? Thank you
A.
