Review RateOur hummingbirds like it
We’ve been using his for several years and our birds always come back and seem to enjoy it. I heard that the red is not good for them recently. I hope that isn’t true. Maybe we’ll try your clear nectar next.
Review Ratedo not buy
Terrible. Humming birds will not feed on this juice. A perfect waste of money and time. 64oz ready mix.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear the desired results were not seen! Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. How long was the nectar used? Do you have other established feeders in the area with a different type of nectar? Have you always used ready to use nectar or do you normally use concentrates or your own blend? Hummingbirds are creatures of habit and will be hesitant to utilize a new food source. We recommend filling all feeders in the area with the same nectar and birdscaping the area to keep the hummingbirds attracted to the feeders. For more information, please click here.
If you have any questions or need additional assistance, please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973)! Our products are covered by a 30 day satisfaction guarantee with a copy of the purchase receipt.
Review RateSadly bad
My birdies will not touch this nectar. They've always come regardless of brand in the past. I even wondered if this may have been mislabeled and really a concentrate? I tried calling you to find out why they taste and leave. Been feeding hummingbirds for 25 years!Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! This is a ready-to-use product - just pour and go! Hummingbirds may be hesitant to utilize a new food source. We recommend allowing time for the birds to adjust as they are creatures of habit. It is also helpful to place/plant colorful, trumpet shaped flowers nearby to keep the hummingbirds attracted to the area.
Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions or for additional assistance. We are happy to help!
Review RateBirds refuse to drink
Starting using this for convenience and the birds stopped coming. I just made a batch of homemade nectar and am hoping birds will return.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! Since birds are creatures of habit, it may take time for the hummingbirds to adjust to a new nectar. We recommend using this nectar only in all feeders. Placing/planting colorful trumpet shaped flowers in the area will also help to keep the hummingbirds attracted to the area.
We hope this information was helpful! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions or for additional assistance.
Review RateRed dye not needed. Use the Perky Pet clear alternative nectar concentrate.
Clear nectar is all you need. Table sugar and tap water or Perky's clear concentrate. If your feeder is new just tape a piece of red ribbon or a red bow to the bottom of the feeder. Once the hummingbirds find the feeder you just remove the ribbon or bow and they will continue to come to the Perky Pet feeder to feed.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your concern regarding the use of food coloring in our nectar! Thank you for sharing this feedback. We only use food grade ingredients in our products, but are looking into expanding our product line with natural sources for colored nectar.

Review RateBirds love it and it is convenient to order and receive.
I started using the red liquid hummingbird nectar years ago when we started having hummingbirds. My one container went to four that I currently have that have attracted a lot of birds (and babies). My local store stopped carrying the nectar and that is how I found your company and I plan on continuing to purchase it for my birds as they just love it.
Review RateAbsolutely Horrible!
I bought this today and my hummers hate it. They refuse to drink any of this stuff. I will NEVER buy this again. I'm so disappointed. I will not ever recommend this product!Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateHummers Voted No on Perky NectarFor years I have made my hummer nectar with 1 part sugar in 4 parts water. I recently bought a new hummingbird feeder, and this bright red nectar was "On Sale" right beside it. On impulse, I bought a 64-oz jug. What a waste of money! The hummers will not sip this mixture, but they will congregate at the sugar/water feeder. I wish I could rate less than a star.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe appreciate the valuable feedback and would like to learn more. Hummingbirds are creatures of habit and can sometimes take a while to warm up to the slightest difference at a feeder.
We apologize for this experience and would like to make it right. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
