Review RateLooks great but plate rusts.Top hanger bad design.I bought this feeder about 3 months ago. The bottom plate is already all pitted and rusty. It looks great otherwise. I also had to install a laminated wire to replace the metal hanger that attaches to the feeder top. The hanger would keep the top on but it had to be bent to secure the top of the feeder. Bird food tends to cake on the rusty tray especially after a rain. I would not buy this again.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. The finishing process on this product should prevent rust and increase the life of the feeder. Our feeders are covered by a one year replacement warranty.

Review RateVery poor constructionThe only reason I am giving this feeder one star is because it is in fact easy to switch the portals for the types of seed. Otherwise I have found that the base tabs that hold the tube onto the bottom tray & base are not big enough to hold the tube on resulting in the tube coming off the base & spilling the seed.
Also, the top & wire handle are not securely attached to the plastic rod resulting in the feeder coming off the top & falling to the ground, again spilling out the seed. If I don't hang it but put in on a post the feeder will stay connected to its top but the tube will come off the base in the wind.
I am not happy with this feeder at all.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for taking the time to share this valuable feedback. We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to make things right.

Review RateNot good quality productThe only reason I am giving this feeder one star is because it is indeed easy to change the feeder ports from thistle seed to other seed. I filled it & hung it in my tree. Within 1 day the feeder was knocked onto the ground by a squirrel jumping onto it causing it to swing. The hanging wires holding the top came off post attaching the top to the feeder. The bottom does not fit securely into the plastic tube so the bottom fell off the feeder emptying the seed onto the ground. Definitely not worth the money!Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for sharing this feedback. We are sorry to learn that the feeder was damaged by a squirrel. To prevent squirrels from gaining access to the feeder, we recommend hanging it at least 5 feet from the ground and 10-20 feet from the nearest launching point.
Using a squirrel baffler above the feeder can also deter them from jumping onto the feeder. Our products are covered under a one year warranty for replacement. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

Review Ratelooks nice but deceivingThis metal one keeps in too much moisture and causes the seed to mold. This design looks nice. The top comes off easily. Overall, wish I would have bought the plastic one insteadResponse From Perky-Pet®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Sara,
Mold can occur after heavy rain plugs the feeding ports and allows water to dampen the seed. We recommend cleaning, drying and refilling feeders after heavy weather. Another helpful tip is to place 1/4" of cat litter in the bottom of the feeder to absorb excess moisture.
We apologize for this experience and hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.
Review RateTop / Handle uselessI bought this feeder to replace one with plastic ports that was destroyed by a bear. I liked that the metal ports would also discourage squirrels from chewing them. Nice looking, but the top and handle are completely useless. As soon as you take hold of the hanger, the entire top comes off and the wires pop out of the little plastic bar that holds it to the feeder. to refill- you have to grasp the tube & even then, when you try to life the cap, it comes off completely and you have reposition the wires into the small holes before you can hang it again. Bad design, the only reason I've kept it is because the squirrels leave it aloneResponse From Perky-Pet®Kelly : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello,
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. We apologize for the experience and would be happy to provide assistance.
The hanger is designed to be attached to the bar on the inside of the feeder and should not easily come off. The feeder is covered under a one year warranty. We look forward to hearing from you to have this resolved.

Review RateBearproof!To be honest, I bought it for the look of it. Also, it's not really bear proof; it just survives their extremely successful attacks! After a half dozen or so of these bear attacks; where the feeder was grabbed between powerful teeth and torn down, I would call it bear proof! The tube is crushed together and you can see teeth imprints. But each time, the plastic tube pops back into circular shape with no crease lines! The copper metal Bird perches also snap right back in. Looks just as good today as when I got it 5 months ago. I love it so much, I got a second one!
Review RateNot so great !First : After just a year the metal plate start to rust.
Second : Can get it apart easily, as advertized. Its a pain in ... to do it.
Third : If it rain, Water gets in and get trap with the seeds, and mold can start to grow on it. which is very bad for wild birds.
"They can die from those molds"
Recommendation : Before you buy a bird feeder, try to assemble it and disassemble it. If its hard to do, don't buy it.Response From Perky-Pet®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeAt Perky-Pet®, we strive to create feeders that will be durable and allow our consumers to easily feed their feathered friends.
