Review Ratedon't trust their description of the productFirst of all, it took forever to ship. The bird feeder I purchased was supposed to squirrel proof. There is a cage on the outside, supposed to prevent squirrels from getting at the seed. The cage is so close to the seed, he just puts his little hands in there and pulls out the seed. What a waste of money.
Review RateLid blows off in the wind /squirrels can get the lid off
We lost the lid of the first feeder, either squirrels were able to shake it off, or the wind blew it away. Woodstream sent us a replacement feeder, but the new one also lost it's lid in the first week. We were able to find the lid on the ground several feet away and put it back, but squirrels continue to go at it. It's a nice feeder, but the lid design needs to be improved.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for your feedback, the lid of this feeder should lock in place. If the lid is not locking correctly, please contact us directly at 855-737-5973, we're happy to help!
Review RateSquirrel proof??
Song birds love this feeder and so do the squirrels! They easily twist the lid off and feed until they are full. This feeder would be great with a true squirrel proof lid.Response From Perky-Pet®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi Deb! Thank you for taking the time to let us know your feedback! We're sorry to hear that those pesky squirrels seem to have figured out how to get into your feeder. We recommend adding a squirrel baffler, if you have not done so already. Ideal placement would be at least 12 feet away from any type of launch pad (tree, fence…) and at least 4 feet off the ground. Another easy tip is to add some cayenne pepper to the seed – squirrels hate it, but it doesn’t bother the birds at all.

The top blew off in a wind storm making it useless.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateI must be a squirrel
Terrible feeder. I can’t even get the top off to fill and no video. I have twisted and twisted and don’t get anywhere because the end of the space blocks the other side from twisting. A friend got it opened once and it took a week before they would get near it but now I can’t open it again. You are right though, it stumps the squirrels. I’m afraid it’s going back to the store...Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. There is a notch at the top edge of the lid. To open the feeder, simply twist the lid slightly until it unlocks and can be lifted off. Reach out to us directly at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
Review RateNot a squirrel stumper
Doesn't stump the squirrels at all. They love this feeder and eat from it until their stomachs are full. They may not be able to gnaw it very well, but they sure can get to the seed. Even the one that is supposed to close with their weight does not prevent them from eating what they want.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to hear that you have not seen the success we typically see with this feeder. We would like to know more about your experiences in trying to deter squirrels.

Review RateCan’t twist off the top
I can’t get the lid off to even try it, very frustrating, I don’t know what is wrong? No directions?Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for your feedback! The lid of this feeder should be twisted and lifted away so the reservoir may be filled. It is covered by our 30-day guarantee and a 1-year replacement policy.

Review RateGreat company that stands behind their products
I really love this feeder I have not had any problem with squirrels and the birds are happy that the seeds feed freely to the being tray
Review Rate3 ordered, 2 received in damaged condition! Plastic casing was cracked when received. So 1 in great condition and in use, works well! :O) We love the style...
Love the design! We have the same model as this, ours locks quite securely at the top. Can't imagine a squirrel being able to twist the metal top either direction to twist it off? I can see how a squirrel would hang down and pick a port and enjoy eating out of one or eight. lol The price was only $12.99 (?) and so far so good. The only thing was the shipping... One we having hanging came in perfect condition, 2 others arrived with long cracks down the plastic. :( Hopefully the company will replace those since most likely it happened in shipping. We haven't had any get rain on the seeds but that concerns us since we've seen the comment above. Anyone else have that issue? Is that from wind? Not sure how the rain would get in with the top on?Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry for the way the feeders were received and would like to make this right. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for warranty assistance. We are happy to help!
Review Ratedidn't work
Didn't stump my squirrels...they simply took the top off and reached in.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear of this experience! While the feeder includes a squirrel-resistant design, placement is also key when deterring the squirrels. The feeder should be kept at least 12 feet away from launching points (such as a tree, fence, deck, large bush..etc) and four feet off the ground. Installing a squirrel baffler above or below the feeder will also work well to deter the squirrels(when placed in the proper position).
Our Consumer Relations Team is happy to provide additional assistance! Please feel free to contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
