  Amazon Review, Squirrel-proof bird feeder 
Reviewer:

I've had this for about a month and so far the squirrels are defeated. The feeder is an attractive shape and easy to fill, with a latching lid. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to prevent squirrels from eating the bird seed.

  Amazon Review, It works 
Reviewer:

The squirrels hate it, but the birds love it! Best place is in the trees where the squirrels can only watch!

This is a very well made product and the design is truly squirrel-proof. My birds love this feeder and fly to it before any other feeder. I like the way it does not spin, I can view the birds better, and they perch longer. The feeder was larger than I thought from the picture, but that is a good thing. I was hoping this feeder would also deter the chipmunks, but they can still find a way to hang on the perch and they are too light weight to trigger the closer. The feeder arrived within a few days and I was so impressed. I had searched for several days before deciding on a squirrel-proof feeder, concerned that my purchase would be lost money, but this feeder is exceptional!! Highly recommended. Thanks for creating such a good design.

This feeder is excellent. Best one I've ever had. It allows larger seeds and nuts into the feeding port and not get stuck, backing up the rest of the seeds as other feeders do. Seed stays dry even during the hardest rains. Birds love it. Squirrels hate it. Perfect.

I have been trying for years to find a "raccoon-proof" bird feeder. The only types can find are expensive, complicated and require being strung between two poles. I don't have room in my yard or time for that aggravation. So I just started looking for "squirrel-proof" feeders. I was looking for a feeder with a) no base for the raccoons to get a grip on (they have demolished two feeders this way); b) a good solid seal at the top; c) collapsible perches.
This feeder of course has a) and c) covered. The top is thick solid metal with a pressure button on one side (though the seal & mechanism could be better).
I have had it up about a week, and the raccoons have certainly tried to get at the seed, but so far have failed. One morning the top was askew--I think the little b@stards were able to grip & tug on the feeder from the bottom--and one of the metal perch "guards" had been knocked off. However, they had been unable to bring the feeder down from its pole, and very little birdseed had spilled. The material was undamaged and I was able to re-attach the perch guard. So far (one week), the raccoons seem to be foiled, while the birds feed easily & happily.
Pros: Excellent construction and design. If squirrels are all you have to worry about, I recommend this feeder without reservation. Hang it from a pole--not a tree branch--as high as you can.
Cons: 1. I particularly dislike that the container is made of plastic. It is thick, strong plastic but I would have greatly preferred a stronger material that will be less affected over time by the elements (acrylic comes to mind).
2. I REALLY REALLY wish that this item came in a larger size, to hold more seed and have more perches! I would totally buy at least one!

  The fortress has fallen!! 
Reviewer:

I was almost convinced that this was it.... the truly squirrel feeder until these seemingly super intelligent critters in my back yard cracked it. They have managed to access the food from the top of the port rather than the bottom which would have actually closed the port! I would love to upload a picture to show you what I mean.

  RESPONSE FROM PERKY-PET

APRIL 20, 2013

Thank you for your online review of the Perky Pet® Break Away Feeder (model 5110PP). We are sorry to hear that the squirrels have been able to access the feeder.

Squirrels can be very persistent and sometimes a more holistic approach is needed to deter them. You may want to try placing or hanging your feeder on a pole that is 10 feet away from the nearest tree, fence or launching place making sure it is at least 5 feet above the ground. Also adding a squirrel baffle above and or below your feeder is very effective in preventing squirrels from gaining access. If you would like to send the pictures of the squirrels accessing the ports, we would be happy to share the photos with our Product Development Team.

We hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.


Best Regards,
