Discovered the ant moat at the top of the new bottle dries up because it's too shallow to hold water. Although the new wide mouth bottle makes filling and cleaning easier the design causes too much syrup to leak out of the Gloxinia flowers and had bees and ants EVERYWHERE the syrup touched on the flower ports, perches, ground -- the slightest breeze causes the feeder to sway just enough to make the syrup leak out of the flower ports! My previous 203CP narrow-mouth bottle seemed to equalize the fluid pressure so there was no leaking during gentle breezes -- there was a white plastic insert that the narrow mouth screwed into which seemed to hold back overflow of syrup into the feeder's flower ports. I was able to fill the old 203CP glass bottle using a funnel, easy to screw on the flower cup, and flipped the bottle over upright to hang without ever spilling a drop! Not with this new feeder -- when I flip the bottle over upright it spills sticky syrup all over my hands/bottle/ground! I applaud Perky-Pet for trying to improve the bee-guards but here again we found the old flat-design bee-guards were better. The new round-design bee-guards allow the bees to reach under the bee-guard to eat the syrup that pools at the bottom of the Gloxinia flowers -- the old flat bee-guards prevented the bees from reaching under the bee-guard to access the syrup pools at the bottom of the Gloxinia flowers. Guess there will always be pros/cons to every feeder design but in this newest pinch-waist glass feeder we found the "improvements" messed up the efficiency of the previous model. The previous model wasn't perfect but we can honestly say there were no problems with leaking because of the controlled equalized syrup flow of the narrow-mouth bottle using the white plastic insert inside the flower cup. Tossed away the "improved" pinch-waist feeders into the closet and brought out my trusted old 203CP feeders instead which I'm glad I kept!!!Date published: 2016-07-21Rated 3 out of 5 by Magdalena from I wanted to love it I just bought this today to replace some of my cheaper , plastic feeders that were attracting bees all day long and chasing my little hummingbird visitors but as soon as I closed the feeder it splashed syrup out of it.I brought it outside after cleaning the mess on it and by the time I hanged it up the bee was back on it.I am giving it a chance ,maybe that was only because it splashed and won't be leaking any longer,so my hummers can come back ,feeling safe. Maybe it was going to be more practical to pour it from the top so there won't be unnecessary tipping over and splashing.I am worried,with wind this might happen more so.. I will give it till tomorrow and see what happens.Date published: 2016-07-18Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from WASTE OF MONEY-LEAKS! As many others have said, this leaks everywhere and the nectar tips out all over the ground. I have wasted so much nectar and have also never seen a hummingbird use this feeder. The ants however love all the nectar that has spilled on the ground. It's a waste of money! I originally purchased it because it looked easy to clean being glass etc. but as it won't hold any nectar and spills it all out, it is completely useless.Date published: 2016-07-13Rated 1 out of 5 by Suzie from Leaky feeders! I thought the design was going to work well due to being able to clean easily, however, everytime the wind blows all of the food leaks out. My daughter bought the same one and has the same problem. Would not recommend!Date published: 2016-07-11Rated 5 out of 5 by candygram1949 from bird feeder This one does the job for hummingbirds , cleans easy, my husband loves it and gonna get another one!Date published: 2016-07-10Rated 4 out of 5 by Wizzy from Easy fill I am very pleased with the bird feeders. It didn't take long for the Hummingbirds to find the feeders. Other small birds have come to the feeders as well. The feeders are easy to clean and fill.Date published: 2016-07-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Kalel from Easy MX We bought this new feeders to replace our earlier Perky Pet feeders. Our old Perky Pet feeders were still performing well even after many years of use. But once we saw the design of the new feeders we immediately replaced our old with them. The wide mouth jars, with the integral ant mote in the top make for a much more functional and easy to maintain feeder. Makes one wonder why it took so long to come up with. We highly recommend these feeders.Date published: 2016-07-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Mongolita from Great Feeder I have 3 of these and love them. So do the hummingbirds. They are just the right size for my flock and easily cleaned and reassembled. I have NEVER had a LEAKING problem with any of them and wonder if those who have may be over-tightening? I've had several other more decorative feeders, but this style seems to work best for me and is my #1 choice.Date published: 2016-07-01
CAN THIS BE PURCHASED IN THE LARGER SIZE. THANK UThis model feeder only comes in an 8 oz. size. We do have a wire variety of other feeders in larger sizes.Date published: 2016-04-15
Hello, Do the 8oz glass and plastic pinch waist bottles have the same threading for the red feeder trays? I need to replace a plastic bottle but was thinking of using a glass replacement.The 8 oz glass and plastic feeder replacement parts are not interchangeable. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance as to what parts are available for each feeder.Date published: 2016-04-15
I have the pinch waist feeder and in the heat of the day the feeder starts to drip and makes a mess on the porch. The feeder is in the shade. What is the fix for this?We would recommend that the feeder be in a shaded area. Also, we would want to make sure that base is tight with a tight vacuum seal. For any further questions or concerns, please feel welcome to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).Date published: 2016-03-25
What is the red coated wire that is included supposed to be used for?
I have a feeder # CPBN. My question is it leaks at the feeder nozzles the Nectar runs out all the time. Is there a fix for this.
What is being done about the leaking problem of the 203CPBN humming bird feeder. The narrow mouth feeder never leaked and the wide mouth always leaks. Almost all the reviews on different sites say that. This feeder is favored by humming birds.
