Perky-Pet® The Preserve™ Copper Finish Bird Feeder with Flexports®
With the Perky-Pet® The Preserve™ Copper Finish Bird Feeder with Flexports®, you can feed the birds without catering to squirrels. To offer defense against squirrels, this feeder offers a Sure-Lock™ cap and a wire cage barrier so they can’t gain access to the seed supply. In addition to its squirrel proof features, The Preserve™ is also a favorite of birds. It also includes six feeding stations with our patented Flexports®, which offer 5-in-1 benefits for birds and you. With its copper finish and powder coating, this feeder will make a charming, long-lasting addition in any backyard setting.
First, is the feeder’s metal wire cage design. The cage creates a barrier and prevents squirrels from damaging and chewing the reservoir to get to the seed supply. Large bully bird species also cannot enter the cage. Most small feeder birds, however, will have no trouble hopping between the barrier to access the ports. This feeder also features a convenient Sure-Lock™ cap which prevents squirrels from easily opening the feeder and accessing the seed inside.
Flexports® Offer 5-in-1 Benefits
Our patented Flexports® offer 5-in-1 benefits for birds and you. The unique design is 4X more shake resistant than standard Perky-Pet® ports so there’s less seed waste – which means money saved and fewer messes on the ground! The design also allows birds to feed at an optimal position outside of the port, offering improved visibility so they feel safer and visit the feeder longer. Because birds are more comfortable, you’ll get more birdwatching time overall!
Six Feeding Stations
With less competition from squirrels, birds won’t be able to resist the Perky-Pet® The Preserve™ Copper Finish Bird Feeder with Flexports®! It features six feeding ports so multiple birds can dine at the same time and you can enjoy a better view. The large 3 lb seed capacity ensures there’s always enough food to go around. For your convenience, The Preserve also features a large tray to catch dropped seed, to prevent it from littering the ground below.
Birds and bird lovers alike can’t deny the charm of this delightful feeder. The Perky-Pet® The Preserve™ Copper Finish Bird Feeder with Flexports® features a stunning copper finish wire cage that will quickly become a focal point in any yard. In addition, the metal is finished with a powder coating to ensure rust resistance for long lasting durability.

I have totally enjoyed watching the variety of birds coming to this feeder. Imagine my dismay this morning to find one of the ports totally missing! I have only had the feeder about 6 months and being on a fixed income, it was quite an expenditure. I'm really disappointed that the feeder has such easily removable ports. I never would have imagined something so small would totally make the feeder unusable.
We have several of these feeders for both our home and our business. The plastic in the feeding ports do not last very long.(only several months). We really like the feeders they work well, easy to fill, and look great. However, they do not have a replacement for the feeding ports. I do not recommend them at this time. BUT WHEN CONTACTED WAS MADE WITH THE CUSTOMER SERVICE FOLKS THEYWERE EASY TO DEAL WITH AND MADE THINGS RIGHT. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND USE THEM FOR ALL YOUR BIRD FEED NEEDS. I GIVE THE COMPANY A 10 ON A SCALE OF 5.
Nice looking feeder and the birds flocked to it, BUT had it only for a couple of weeks and the wildlife destroyed the perches chewing them off, or pulling them out. Need to beef up the construction using metal perches. Gotta go find a better built caged feeder now.
Purchase this feeder in June 2022...in less than 2 weeks one of the flex ports fell off and all my bird feed fell to the ground. I was unable to repair so I taped the hole...within a few days another fell off. Yes, I foolishly taped that hole and very soon another fell off. Lesson learned. The bird seed I buy is not cheap but the feeder is very poorly made. I hope I can get hold of the makers of this product to get a refund as I never kept the receipt not expecting to need it.
If you have woodpeckers, don't get this. It will not last. Plastic Flexports don't hold up at all... poor design, to have plastic where birds peck through to get to food. In use for less than a month, and a bottom port is broken from pecks, and now all the food flows out of it. I went with Perky-Pet based on an old, all metal, tube feeder from this company. The all metal tube feeder is still going strong after 20 years (red one pictured). The new one is trash in a month. I understand you can buy replacement ports, but if they last a month, it isn't worth anything.
Back to the drawing board and shopping for a quality feeder. I'm very disappointed with Perky-Pet lack of quality.
Unfortunately, this feeder is not squirrel proof and so I have to give it only 3 stars. As a birdfeeder, it is 5-star; as a squirrel resistant feeder, it is 1 star. As another reviewer said, the flexports are accessible through the grid by persistent squirrels, and quickly get chewed on and pulled out. I began covering the grid holes near every flexport with wire "X's" to prevent access by the squirrels, but they still managed to ruin almost every flexport because I didn't realize how far they could stretch their necks inside the grid. There are other design features that do work though compared to other squirrel-proof feeders I have tried. For example, the lid "locks" on and the squirrels cannot access or chew through to the plastic tube. The lid is also big enough to provide protection from the elements so food stays dry.
I am actually writing to give the customer service department 5 stars. I called to ask if they sell flexports so I can replace the ruined ones, and to my surprise, since I purchased the feeder only 2 months ago, they are sending me a whole new birdfeeder! Needless to say, I will immediately wire off the protective grid around the bottom of the new feeder to prevent squirrels from getting to the new ports, but I'm delighted to be able to once again enjoy the tons of birds who come to this feeder. Thank you customer service!
I purchased this Copper Preserve feeder May 16, 2022. After one day, the first flex port was broken/pecked away causing the shelled sunflower seeds to fall into the tray. May 25th went out to fill feeder and discovered all the clip in ports were missing. I found two in the yard that had been chewed up. Not sure if the damage was from a determined squirrel because I had seen them putting their heads through the metal cage (we have many in our area) or a rodent, but I’m so disappointed as I really liked the look hanging outside with our other copper feeders. Do you sell replacement feeding stations? If so, I need six as I’m willing to try again.
I bought this a week ago and filled it with sunflower seeds that day. It has been hanging since then with several other feeders nearby. The birds will not go into this feeder! I think the plastic around the wholes deters them from trying to get the bird seed. Will have to return it.
