Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Home Style Bird Feeder Make sure that the seed stays for the birds with this Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Home Style Bird Feeder. 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! We recommend cleaning the feeder at least every two weeks and regularly checking the to ensure the seed is free of insects and mold.

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. Blue Jays, Cardinals etc. We love ours. Buy the pole and spray it with grease the squirrels never come near it. Buy it, you won’t regret. More expensive on Amazon. Enjoying it immensely!!
I just purchased your green Squirrel Proof Home Style feeder from Amazon and received it today. Unfortunately I can’t figure out how to attach the hanger to the feeder because one side faces in and one side faces out and the holes don’t seem to match up. There are no instructions to show how this hanger should be attached. Please help, otherwise I will have to return the feeder to Amazon and purchase something different.
Instructions for how to set up the hangar for this feeder can be found on our website here if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 855-737-5973, we're happy to help!
We got this for Christmas from our kids. Was absolutley in love with it BUT we have yet to see one bird eat out of it. We have another smaller feeder that attracts Cardinals, and all types of birds. We use the same feed. So has anybody had problems with this type feeder not attracting the birds.
Thank you for sharing this feedback. Birds can be picky eaters and may take time to try out a new feeder in their environment. We recommend temporarily removing established feeders or placing a shiny pie pan with seed directly below the new feeder.
My issue is with the rotating metal T piece that holds the roof to the base. Twice now I have found the roof on the ground and the seed ruined by rain. I am trying a bungee cord around the unit to secure the roof. Any retrofits to solve this problem!

I have had this feeder four years, and I rate the feeder excellent. It is easy to fill and easy to clean. As far as squirrels are concerned, I ordered the feeder with the universal pole (#5107-4) and the pole baffle (#341), and I totally enjoy watching squirrels tackle the system, because they get totally baffled. Squirrels entertain a person without let-up. Squirrels try every possible way to get to the feeder, inevitably turn around, light on the ground and gaze up in a woebegone manner--and slink away, defeated. After four years, the plastic is becoming cloudy, and the paint on the four bottom corners is wearing off. Thus, I have ordered the same feeder again.
I purchased this feeder because I liked the looks and it was supposed to be "squirrel-be-gone". Well, it is absolutely NOT squirrel-be-gone and, in addition, it is metal and will rust. The only thing this feeder has going for it is the looks.

The all metal construction provides for longevity for this feeder and keeps the seed dry no matter what the weather. The squirrel-proof feature makes it a highly desired feeder so that "birds" instead of "squirrels" are the ones who get the seed. The longer perch area allows the larger birds, along with the smaller birds, to also access food from this feeder. It does require a sturdy pole mount, though, for set up.
