Perfect for hanging flower boxes and in a very good price.Date published: 2016-07-13Rated 4 out of 5 by snw1126 from OK feeder This bird feeder is made out of lightweight and thin plastic material. It does not seem very sturdy or durable. I do not see this feeder lasting longer than one year. It does have several feeding stations and they can be opened or closed depending on what type of seed you are using. It holds quite a bit of bird seed. The top screws off so adding more seeds is quick and easy.

I filled the feeder with seed and had a variety of birds going to it which was nice and enjoyable to watch but then a squirrel made it up to the feeder and chewed through the hanger handle and it fell to the ground, (which was soft due to several rain storms) and broke apart. I would not recommend this feeder. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Date published: 2016-03-04Rated 4 out of 5 by Mark from Birds like it. The birds like the feeder. My only peeve is with the bit of a mess it creates on the patio. This is not a really big deal, and the birds will clean it up after the food in the feeder is gone, so maybe that is a bit too small to complain about. Really, it looks nice hanging outside, and it attracts several different kinds of birds, and that was the point in getting the feeder. We like it.

This Perky-Pet Bird Feeder holds 1.8 pounds of seed. Two in One Ports, easily switch from mixed seed to thistle seed. Really nice design and idea, multi purpose use. The ports, that deliver the seed, rotate to close for thistle seed or open all the way for regular seed. We have it filled with sunflower seeds and will switch to thistle seed next. The top pulls off for easy filling. It is the perfect size to accommodate smaller birds. We noticed that the Red Birds and Blue Jays are able to get seed but it was more difficult for them. Nice Design and Product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Date published: 2016-03-03Rated 3 out of 5 by breynold2 from Tweet tweet. Decent for beginners. If you're looking for a very inexpensive "starter" bird feeder, the Perky-Pet is fine. Given the thin, all-plastic construction (made in China), and the fact that I didn't invest in a squirrel baffle, I suspect this feeder won't last as long as my waning enthusiasm for feeding the critters that occasionally nest in our house (flocks of sparrows). I don't expect this feeder to last much beyond winter or a few hungry squirrel attacks; however, it's so inexpensive that I consider it a disposable feeder. I was impressed that they included feeding doors to switch between regular seed (millet/sunflower) and thistle however- you can flip the feeding hatches. I also close the hatches to keep birds on the side of the feeder we see from the window. Easy screw off top to fill the feeder too. Depending on the seed you put in it, you can attract finches, sparrows, juncos, nuthatches, and other small birds. I suspect the first thing to break in a squirrel attack will be the plastic hanging mechanism, but I'll replace that with wire until it's time to replace the entire feeder. Anyway, decent for the price, but the price is indicative of the quality. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Date published: 2016-02-28Rated 3 out of 5 by Sandy from Perkey Pet Bird Feeder I would recommend this product to only a place that had no squirrels. The light weight plastic that the feeder is made of will not stand up to a hungry squirrel. They will chew right through it and the food will drop to the ground. I placed mine where squirrels can not get to it and have many birds eating out of it. The feeder holes are adjustable so you can change them to a finch feeder and provide thistle seed so they can eat it and no other bird can get the food out because of the narrow opening for the finch beak. IT is made of a light weight plastic and the joint where the tubing was joined has several small holes in it. For a back yard window that does not allow squirrels access to it, this is a nice window feeder. The small holes at the joint will allow water to seep in to the feed and cause it to mold unless you have a feeder that is in constant use then the food will slide down and be eaten by the various birds that visit the feeder. It is a nice in-expensive feeder [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Date published: 2016-02-09Rated 2 out of 5 by MsDonna60 from Birds Love It - Squirrels Do Too! When I first got this feeder my initial thought was it looks good but it felt awfully light weight. Following instructions the feeder was hung in a tree near a large window for observation. It did not take long for finches to arrive, soon followed my other little birds. They sought out all the openings and were eating away! My delight turned to dismay when a squirrel came along and chomped right through the lightweight plastic opening up the feeder and spilling all the bird food to the ground. Great idea in design but material is flimsy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Date published: 2016-02-09
