Review RateNot Worth It
all it feeds are the ants that the leaking nectar attracts that drips on to the sidewalk. Poorly designed and a waste of money in both the feeder and the wasted nectarResponse From Victor®Elizabeth : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing your experience. We are sorry to hear that your feeder is leaking. There are a few ways to help prevent hummingbird feeders from leaking like protecting it from wind and hanging it out of the direct sun as the liquid expands when it gets warmer. Also, since this is a bottom fill feeder it is important to quickly invert the feeder after filling it with nectar. Sometimes disassembling and reassembling the feeder can help correct any mis-threading that may be causing it to leak. If you have tried these tips please give us a call at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) and we will be happy to offer assistance.
Review RateDefective feeders
I have several of the old style Perky-Pet glass pinch waist feeders that never leaked. I bought 4 of the new ones because I broke a couple of nails on the old ones where you inserted the screw on part. These new ones are trash, sorry I spent money on them and when I contacted Perky-Pet to see if they had a fix or would replace them I was told to send them back in their original box with the original receipt.....who keeps that stuff?? I was so sure of the quality I was buying I threw all that out. Now if I don't have the original receipt, they won't do a thing!! So sorry I bought several of these for house warming gifts too. I don't think I will be buying ANYTHING Perky-Pet has to offer in the future.Response From Victor®Elizabeth : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateLousy new design - Model 203CPBN
I have owned these particular hummingbird feeders for decades, and they have never leaked a drop. However, recently I bought two new ones, and they BOTH leak until the liquid is gone. It makes a sticky mess on the deck, and keeps me busy, refilling them. I happened to save the red plastic flower parts from the old feeders and noticed a change in the design of them. Before, the little stem on the flower was cut diagonally so it fit better and snugly against the base. Now, it's cut straight across. That's where the leaking is coming from. It's an insult to remind us how to clean them or take care of them because we've all been doing this for years, and never had a problem before. Just admit you are having them made somewhere else or by another company or are cutting corners trying increase your profit and face up to the fact you have a serious design flaw that you need to fix. In the meantime, I'll buy my feeders elsewhere. It's a shame you didn't leave the original design alone. If it ain't broke - don't fix it.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

I bought 3 and they all leak. They are not in direct sun and are hung in a wind free area. I tried Teflon tape and inverting quickly. They completely empty in less than 48 hours. My old style pinch waist with narrow neck never leaked a drop.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateImpossible to clean, bad design
Impossible to clean!! The opening in the bottle is too small for a brush and the angled sides , mean even a test tube brush can't hit the sides. The red bottom section is also hard to clean and the yellow cage like bee guards IMPOSSIBLE to clean. After a while, the red base no longer screws securely onto the inner white part AND the inner white part eventually attaches to NOTHING. The entire lower red base is lying on my patio, all the liquid gone, bee guards scattered. In short, ALL my effort last night to clean this awful feeder has been wasted!Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are very sorry to hear of this experience and have shared the information with our Product Managers. Have you tried soaking the feeder in warm water and dish detergent? This may help to clean the hard to reach areas.

Review RateSorry, would not purchase again
Nice looking feeder, unfortunately leaks. Been using hummingbird feeders for over 10 yrs, never had them leak like this unit & I have 2 of them :(Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
The time taken to provide this feedback is appreciated! Where are the feeders hung? We recommend keeping them out of the direct sunlight (liquid will expand when it turns warm). We also recommend quickly inverting the feeders upright after filling to create a vacuum seal.

Review RateProduct Improvements Not Working Out
The new design and apparent manufacturing changes cause problems. The manufacturing seams catch mold, the new bee guards do the same. There are thin bits of plastic in bad places, even in the bee guards, in some cases actually restricting fluid flow. I have tried everything to clean them, even resorting to the dishwasher. The new version of the plastic body seems to attract black mold to form which sticks to the plastic and is very difficult to impossible to remove because it requires physical friction in places where you really can't get to it. Water pressure just doesn't cut it. The idea of bee guards you can open to clean is good but in practice there are a lot of manufacturing imperfections and nooks and crannies for the mold to form and hide. I clean these every time I fill them but they still managed to develop black mold. In addition as others have said these leak. As a result they attract bees, wasps, ants, and larger birds. Keeping them out of sunlight as you suggest also makes them less visible. That was not a problem with the previous versions of the narrow bottle neck feeders. I do not know if this mold problem is also the reason the birds do not seem to like these feeders, even though they look almost the same. My old style Perky Pet feeders worked well. However this is the second year I have both had trouble cleaning the new ones and had a poor turnout of customers. It's really a shame because I like the convenience of the wide mouth and the bee moat. But the manufacturing and design are not up to standards.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this detailed feedback! We appreciate the information and have shared these comments with our Product Manager.
When cleaning the feeder and all the accessories, we recommend using warm soapy water and allowing time for the parts to soak. This will help clean all the nooks and crannies. Also, a handful of uncooked rice can be used. Simply fill the feeder with one part vinegar to four parts water, add the rice, shake vigorously and then rinse thoroughly. We recommend cleaning at least twice a week, more often in warmer climates/months.

Review RateTerrible waste of money
It leaks. It has nothing to do with the placement of the feeders. Sun or shade, they start to leak right after they are hung. I suggest you test these out in the real world and not in your design lab. Also, you suggested that I clean out my feeders. I clean my feeders every time that I refill them. The old style worked much better even though they were harder to clean. I purchased a Pennington feeder which is not only easy to clean but it doesn’t leak, EVER!Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateLeaking new model
I have spent the time and money to do your designing for you. Your new model leaks. I purchased 4 of them. They all leak and it has nothing to do with the bottle being tight or sun or wind or any of the other items you mention. It has to do with the design of the angle for the flowers. You have changed that and it is just enough to be right at the edge of leaking and any movement (like a hummer perching) will start the leak. I have gone back to my old model of yours. You cannot make it leak. Please fix this.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateLeaks, leaks, leaks
I said this before and I’ll say it again. This is a waste of money. The nectar dribbles out at a pretty steady pace. I have two of these but sadly they are in a shoebox and out of use. I still have and use several of the older model which I love but can no longer find anywhere to purchase the replacement part for the nectar chamber. I’m afraid this will be their last season of use unless I can find the part somewhere.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Where are the feeders placed? It is important to keep them out of the direct sunlight as liquid expands when it gets warmer. We recommend cleaning the feeders and also making sure the base and bottle are assembled tightly.
