Review RatePoor Feeder
We have one of these that we bought thinking it would be superior to the plastic ones, which always seem to leak stick syrup all over the deck. There is NO RED anywhere on the feeder and the powdered sugar crystals only make the syrup PINK. Th flowers one the unit are YELLOW. In short, the little birds won't come near ours and the syrup spoils within a week. I *may* try to paint the base and flowers red this winter and see if that works better. If not, it goes to Goodwill. The one thing I DO LIKE is that it's easy to fill and doesn't leak. Other than that, it looks nice, but won't attract hummingbirds in my area.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Hummingbirds do like the color red, but feed at nectar-producing flowers of many colors, including blue, white, and yellow. The intensity of the red color in the nectar may vary, but this will not affect the taste or attraction.
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. Hummingbird nectar can spoil or ferment, and should be changed on a regular basis. During hot weather, change it every two days. In milder weather, once a week is fine.

Review RateMason jar Hummingbird FeederI had bought this at a local hardware, and found them to be so easy to fill and clean I had to have more. Alas they no longer carried them. Online I went to buy more. What a greats idea.
Review RateBig disappointmentvery disappointed with this feeder! I bought two of them because I thought they were so attractive, but ants get into them the first day I put out clean nectar. The hummingbirds stay away because of how quickly this ruins the nectar. Save your money and buy the tried-and-true types of hummingbird feedersResponse From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe are sorry to hear about this experience and are happy to help. When ants have found a feeder, our Ant Guard® (model 245L) can provide protection.

Review RateGreat, but...We have 3 of these feeders and the hummers love them. BUT, like RLL's comment, the paint flakes off of the inside of the dish (on a feeder we had for 1 yr). Not sure if it is safe for the birds.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to make this right. The finishing process should prevent peeling.

Review Ratebase paint chips may not be safe for birdsPurchased less than one year ago. Last fall washed and stored. Have used it for one week this spring and the inside of the base tray, the part where the liquid sits below the flower buds, is peeling. Apparently the galvanized metal is painted or coated with a vinyl-like coating that dries out and peels off, leaving rust and paint chips behind. Is this safe for birds?
Would not purchase again because of this peeling and rusting problem. Otherwise is a attractive and easy to handle feeder. Nice size, too.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Ramona,
Thank you for sharing this experience. The base of the mason jar feeders and waterers are powder coated for rust resistance.

Filling Your Feeder:
Here are a few things to review before filling the feeder:

- Push container into base to close ports to prevent leakage
- Unscrew to cap to fill with nectar
- Screw cap back on securely to form an airtight seal.

Please note: if the cap does not fit securely on to the feeder and you see a gap between the cap and the feeder, the seal may be the issue. Please contact our Consumer Care Department at 1.800.800.1819 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a new outer ring for you cap.
To replace the outer ring, push firmly on the center of the cap to pop out the middle. Replace with new outer ring.

Hummingbird Feeders - FAQs
Q: What criteria should I use when selecting a hummingbird feeder?
A: Make sure it is one that will be easy to clean and fill, especially since you will need to clean the feeder every few days. If you are worried about bees and wasps or ants invading the feeder, purchase a hummingbird feeder with bee guards, such as the Perky-Pet model #203CP or ant guards, Perky-Pet model #242.
Q: How do I clean my hummingbird feeders?
A: Hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned every 1-2 weeks. Use hot water and a bottle brush, along with mild soap; be sure to rinse thoroughly. The Perky-Pet cleaning mop is specifically designed for the purpose of cleaning hummingbird feeders, and is very convenient to use. This cleaning mop can also be used on seed feeders and oriole feeders for those small, tight spaces that are difficult to reach.
Q: What is the importance of providing water for hummingbirds?
A: Hummingbirds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need nectar. Hummingbirds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide hummingbirds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for hummingbirds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy.
