Review RateSolution for leaks & dripsI pulled the flowers outward as far as they would go and still remain on the feeder. Next I turn the flowers until the longer end of the slanted end is on the bottom. I can fill my cinched waist feeders full with no leaks nor drips.
Hello. I have always been a Perky Pet fan and have made many purchases. However, I am struggling to keep my old pinched waist glass feeders going. I am very puzzled as to why you changed the design and why after several years of complaints you continue to not rectify the problem. I had my new one 1 week before I gave up as it dripped constantly. I have had one of my old ones 10 years and never a drip. Why can't you make us all happy and go back to the old design?Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWaste of money
The worst feeder, I have bought. The wide mouth does make it easy for cleaning. But food leaks out with in 2-3 days. Because of this leaks it draws more bees. Bring back the feeder with the old feeder that has the white insert in the feeder. That was the best feeder you had, but discontinued. I would rate this product as a ZERO! Do not buy. Waste of money.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear that this feeder leaked! When hanging feeders, we recommend locations out of direct sunlight, as the heat causes nectar to expand and leak out of the ports as you experienced.

Review RatePoor design
Poor design Bottom cracks with the least amount of pressure when attaching glass nectar container; do not see a replacement bottom available. Tried gluing but this did not workResponse From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot happpy
I have been a huge fan of Perky Pet Feeders for many, many years. I love the new wider mouth feeders. I purchased many of the Grand Master feeders. Best thing ever. I also have purchased many of the 30 ounce wide mouth feeders again very happy. But recently I purchased 6 pinch waist new style wide mouth feeders. I have been disappointed to see that they all drip nectar. I still am using them because the Orioles love drinking from them as I don't put on the bee guards unless I have a bee problem. The leakage is bringing ants to the ground around the feeder and is very disappointing. I do hope you go back to the slightly more angled feeding ports.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

I have had no problems with my 2 new feeders, I love them! Do not leak, easy to clean, & so far no problems with the bee guards, as stated by others. Maybe I got an older model? I purchased from Walmart, last 2 on the shelf.
My hummingbirds love this since I removed the yellow covers. I tried it with two covers still on, and they always chose the holes without the covers, so I removed the rest and now they use all 4.
Review RateBest Hummingbird Feeder
I've been feeding migrating hummingbirds for over ten years. This is my favorite feeder - just the right size and easy to clean.The bee guards really work, and the ability to add water to the cap/top eliminates ants. If you feed hummingbirds you must commit to cleaning /disinfecting on a regular basis to prevent bacteria and fungus from harming birds. I clean feeders every two to three days with a mixture of 1:3 vinegar and hot water.
Review RateFeeders leak..not as good as the older design
First I want to say that our family are fans of Perky Pet products...until now! We have used your Hummingbird products for over a decade. Recently we purchased 2 new glass Favored Pinch-Waist feeders to replace our weather worn older units. What a mistake! The older design had an opaque plastic insert in the distribution well. They worked great in the sun as well as the shade. Never a problem. I used to fill them up almost to the top with no leak. Now we're told to put them in shade and to fill them half way. Still leaks. Don't have receipts because I bought them a few months ago to use for the summer. What a waste! What was the reasoning behind the design change in the first place? Just leave the product alone. I've already called and spoke to a nice rep by the name of Mike.Response From Perky-Pet®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreedy manufacturer
It is so disappointing to read through 3+ years’ worth of negative reviews on this website (and others) discussing the faulty design feature of the newer wide-mouth model. It is also insulting to see the copy/paste responses from the Perky Pet intern stating, “Sorry. We’ll take this feedback to our Product Managers.” That response may have been true back in 2016, however it’s now 2019 and nothing in the design has changed. It’s now obvious that even despite the high return rate and complaints, Perky Pet must still be turning a profit on this piece of garbage. There are no “product managers” reading these reviews. What a shame.Response From Perky-Pet®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
