Perky-Pet® Aqua Seed Duo Wild Bird Feeder
- Product Review (submitted on January 25, 2019):
I've had this feeder over a year now and am pretty happy with it. It's had some issues that I've tweaked, though. The very first time I hung it up, I twisted the supplied S hook just a little and it snapped, sending the fully loaded feeder crashing to the ground. Bent things up a little and cracked some paint on the roof so I was pretty disappointed, but I am partly to blame. I would certainly recommend using a stronger hook from the start, though. Before too long I got the feeling the perches were too short. Cardinals wanted to eat but couldn't get comfy. There are models better suited for them though. I attached a branch to the bottom, between the two sections and sticking out a foot or so on each side. This has been a huge hit, the polite birds even sit in line and wait their turn. It does seem that they prefer to sit parallel to the feeder, since if they eat facing the feeder on the original perches, they have a limited view of their surroundings. I like how the roof comes off, but I've gotten so lazy when it comes to refilling (and depending what seeds I have in it the sides empty at very different rates) so I've just drilled a roof hole over each section and put rubber stoppers in. But that's just lazy. So it's not perfect in my book, and the supplied hook I would consider a flaw, but after using it for a year I can say that I would purchase again.
