This unique feeder is equipped with weight-activated perches, which means when an animal that's heavier than the bird the seed is intended for comes to visit, the perch goes down and closes the feeding ports, blocking off the seed. It has an adorable house design, complete with a roof, faux chimney, and front porch perch, and there are strategically placed cutouts that look like windows and a front door — all finished in a bold green color that adds to the country charm.Squirrel Proof Design To offer defense against squirrels, this feeder boasts multiple great features. First, is the feeder’s weight-activated perch, which is calibrated to support the weight of birds but not squirrels. When squirrels try to gain access to the seed, the ports close off under their weight. Birds can sit on the perch without activating it. The sensitivity can also be adjusted to keep out larger nuisance birds. In addition, the chimney lid lock prevents squirrels from lifting the lid, while the metal frame discourages chewing.
To ensure a 100% squirrel proof feeder, placement is key! Hang the feeder with at least 18 inches of clearance on all sides so squirrels can’t easily reach the ports without activating the perch.Durable and Versatile This Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Home Style Bird Feeder has an all-metal construction designed to stand up to the weather and squirrel invaders. The metal is powder-coated in a bold green eye-catching color and provides enhanced rust resistance and durability. This feeder can be hung or pole mounted for versatile placement anywhere around your yard.Attractive, Rustic Style Birds and bird lovers alike can’t deny the charm of this delightful feeder. This unique feeder is styled after a country home, complete with a bold green finish, metal roof, and windows and door. The large perch even resembles a front porch. The roof-style lid is even topped with a chimney, which conveniently locks the lid in place.Easy to Clean Cleaning and filling is an effortless process thanks to the feeder’s convenient design. The removable roof and large opening make this feeder easy to fill with up to 8 lb capacity of black-oil sunflower seed, mixed seed, hulled sunflower seed, or safflower seed. Cleaning the feeder is also easy!

Review RateBirds not using
My birds do not like this feeder. I took your advice and now just have this feeder by itself except for a separate suet feeder. I'm using sunflowers seeds and maybe I should try mixed seed. I love the look and have very clever squirrels.... Any suggestions would be appreciated. It's cold here in Upstate NY and I want my birds to eat. Thank youResponse From Perky-Pet®Rachel : Consumer Relations Representative
Oh no, we are sorry to hear this! Birds are creatures of habit and can take time to try a new food source. We would recommend placing a fresh water source near the new bird feeder and/or putting a shiny pie plate filled with bird seed under the feeder. The feeder is covered under a 30 day return policy. Please contact us directly at 855-737-5973 for assistance.
Review RateNo birds eating
We bought 2 of these, one red & one green, had out all summer, kept cleaned & filled with new seed, but the birds would not eat from them. Also the squirrels were able to climb all over & would keep knocking off hooks. Please give me some suggestions. Sincerely, Irene PhillipsResponse From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. We're sorry to learn that the birds have not yet visited the feeders. If the squirrels have been taking over, the birds may not have had much of an opportunity to feed. We recommend hanging or mounting the feeder at least 6 feet from, the ground and 10-20 feet away from vantage points where squirrels could leap down from.
Birds can also be picky eaters and may prefer one feeder over another. To encourage them to try the new feeders, established feeders may need to be temporarily removed.
Review RateLove it
It was a new feeder for the birds so they didn't want it right away. But they do love it. Keeps the squirrels out and I love how you can set the level of pressure to keep the preditors out. Great deal.
Review Rateto much to keep up
I received this as a gift. I do love the look of the birdfeeder but it doesn't dispense the seed for the birds i have adjusted the sides of the feeder with the weight to open all the way the birdfeeder clogs with the seed and has to be cleaned out every other day. I wouldn't recommend this it takes way to much up keepResponse From Perky-Pet®Rachel : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWell Made To Keep Seed Dry
I have only had this feeder for a short time but, am already seeing benefits. I have had zero squirrel problems. The main advantage so far for me is that the seed stays dry. We have had a lot of rain and days with blowing wind and rain yet the seed stayed dry. It is very well made of durable materials and I especially like the way the roof comes off for access to the seed bin and has a locking device. The windows show the seed levels from my window so I know exactly when I need to refill. The large 5 lb. capacity is just right.
Review RateSeed got wet
Filled with water after the first rain and all my seed got moldy. The birds aren't very interested in using it, but the squirrels haven't seemed out figure it out either. Customer service was very helpful and did not hesitate to give me a refund when I expressed my issues. If you are able to have it under cover or don't get much rain, it might work for you.
Review RateWorth the moneyBirds love it. Easy to fill and hang. Squirrels are still getting to the seed though by either "hanging" upside down from the roof...or by even getting the roof off! LOL.
Kind of hard not to respect the squirrels' efforts! Some friends have told me to use a different seed. I'll definitely try that.
Definitely worth the money still.
Review RateKeeps the squirrels outIt does actually keep the squirrels out, and after only a day or two they stopped trying. (Yay!)
Easy to fill, and holds a lot. The seed in it has appeared to stay dry after several rains.
Can hang, go on top of a 1" pole, or mount to a flat surfice. Comes with the hardware for mounting.
Very easy to use and well thought out.
Review RateSo far, no squirrels!Great price, high capacity, and so far it's squirrel proof!
Review RateGreat Bird Feeder. After years of purchasing bird feeders this is the BESt!
4 **** The only reason I gave it four stars is the roof is a little difficult to get on. Yes, it took abut 2 weeks for the birds to come. The roof protects the seeds perfectly even with our sprinklers hitting three times a week. We purchased ours @ Rural King for $ 28.00. We purchased 2. It’s by far the best bird feeders we have ever had. I spray clear coat spray (rust inhibitor) over the whole unit once a month. We are in Florida but are getting all kinds of birds now.
