rose petal feederMy hummingbirds like this model best; easy to clean, fill, hang. Older ones lose white plastic piece around feeding ports but, I will try super glue on them. I like the free shipping option. On a previous order, I found one was broken when I opened the shipping box but, your company replaced it-no problem. The glass holds up well but, red plastic part shows age after a few yrs. And, I may add too much bleach when I soak them once a month instead of the routine soap and water cleaning every 2-3 days. I have 8 feeders and fill them about every other day, depending on flowers available. These little birds make me smile; they are so adorable. Wish I could order replacement parts for this model.

The BestI have been feeding hummingbirds for years and have researched and tried any number of feeders. Rose Petal is The Best ! Easy to clean and fill. Having the ant moat on top and attached is genius. My only wish is that the portals were the sort with bee guards.

Rose petal feeder #279I found that this feeder has all the bells and whistles that any hummingbird would love. I like the fact that it is glass instead of plastic. The bee moat attachment on top is helpful.Just fill it with water to keep the ants from being a nuisance. The only thing I can say as a minus is that the company doesn't sell the small white replacement buttons, which I unfortunately lost two of. I spoke to Mike from customer service and asked him if he could pass along a request for a package of just the replacement buttons for sale. I hate to have to buy a whole new feeder just to replace the buttons. He said he would pass along the information to consider. Thank you.

My favourite feederI have my second feeder of this type. I had to replace it as our resident Raccoons decided to bust the first one.This is my favourite feeder. Simple, red and white with no unnecessary flowers stuck on.Plastic base and top with thick glass bottle.The built in ant moat is actually, and unusually, big enough to be useful.My one problem with it is that the neck of the bottle is very narrow and thus hard to clean. A visit to a wine making store may find you a bottle brush to clean it with. Don't try the brushes made for babies bottles...they won't go through the neck.

Favorite ever!!I've had this feeder for several years and love it...I find it the easiest to use of all the types of feeders I've had..and my hummingbirds definitely prefer this one!! I like that it's glass, I live in a windy area and have never had a problem with it falling and breaking. It's pretty easy to clean using a bottle brush. I need to replace mine as it's been several years and the red base is very faded now. Would definitely recommend this feeder!

The hummers favorite, but...During the peak of hummingbird season, there are 27 feeders in my backyard, and this is by far their most favorite feeder of them all. I have 6 of them hanging now and plan on getting more. I also give this one as gifts to those who have never had a hummingbird feeder, knowing this will easily attract many hummers. I would give this a 5 star review, except that the plastic hook on the top does not last long in the extreme temperatures of the high desert. It would be better if it was made with a metal hook, or with the red covered wire that is on some of the other hummingbird feeders. It would be nice if we were able to purchase extra plastic tops. RESPONSE FROM PERKY-PET SEPTEMBER 18, 2013 Hello Colleen, We are happy to hear that the hummingbirds favor this feeder. We appreciate your feedback regarding the plastic hook and have shared these comments with our Product Development Team for use in their quality control measures.

Love the perchs on this oneI love to see 4 hummingbirds sitting on this at one time. It's a great feeder, however after owning it for 3 months the white hook on top of the feeder broke off. We hope to super glue it back on hoping it will be able to be hung up again. Other than than, it's one of my favorite feeders.
