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.

Review RateCannot attach hanger to feeder
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.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
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!
Review RateNO BIRDS
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.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
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.
Review RateLove this feeder! Going to add more to my collection!Love, love, love everything about this feeder! Easy to clean, easy to fill, easy to tell when refill is needed. Enjoy watching the birds!
Review Ratesquirrel-proof roof?
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!Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGet the feeder with a baffle and have no problem with squirrels.
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.
Review RateWill NOT keep squirrels away.
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.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateOverall, a super feeder for birds
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.
Review RateNot squirrel proof & no parts
First the roof lock is no match for a squirrel. Mine was off on the ground in 10 minutes. I finally tape the top on. Next, The squirrel-proof part is a laugh, They sit on the roof & hang down by their feet & empty the feeder of 2 pounds of food without ever touching the spring perch. All the baffles in the world are not going to deter a hungry rodent from sunflower seed candy. They can easily jump 20 feet tree to tree. I would need a 30 foot ladder to hang it higher than they can hop to it. I've watch them get on a upper branch & bend it down to the feeder. Finally the piece of plexiglass that is the front windows of the feeder is not squirrel chew proof. Mine has the windows chewed out & out falls all the seed. I called Customer Service to get a replacement part & was told that no replacement parts are available for this feeder, like the plastic flower feeder ports for their hummingbird feeder model 476-3. Built in obsolescence, Must be made in China.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry for this experience. Mixing cayenne pepper with the seed often works well to deter the squirrels as they dislike the spicy taste; the birds will not be affected by the pepper.

Review RateSturdy and Does The Job!
Perky-Pet Squirrel Be Gone is doing the job. First day I put it out, my squirrel tried and tried but no luck. He even sat on the roof, trying to figure it out. I do have a another feeder near my fence which he feeds on. He no longer attempts the Perky Pet feeder. 3 birds at a time can feed on the perch. I had no trouble putting it together or removing the roof. If only these customers would read the instructions more carefully, they could easily do it. Feeder made to last!
Review RateProblem with roof
I bought the perky pet squirrel be gone green feeder with copper roof and for the life of me cannot get the chimney to line up to keep the roof on. I just spent 45 minutes working on this and I'm ready to explode! This should not be this difficult and a friend has one and says hers works. I wonder if there is some sort of alignment problem??Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this experience and are happy to help.
With the roof off, look at the direction of the locking mechanism under the chimney. Make sure it is pointing at the same angle as the slot it will slide through. Place the roof down onto the feeder (the back of the roof is flush with the back of the feeder). While pushing the roof down firmly, turn the chimney a quarter turn and the lock should be in place.
