Review RateBad Flower Design
The nectar drips out at a steady drip and leaves a sticky mess on the deck which is attracting ants. It is attached to a window. Poor design.Response From Safer Brand®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! It is important to keep the feeder out of the direct sunlight. Liquid will expand when it gets warmer, causing this experience.

Review Rateleaky feeders - don't waste your money
I have purchased 3 of these hummingbird feeders (spent $10 each) only to have one crack down the side of the bottom part and 2 are now leaking. My aunt is a hummingbird specialist and yes I know where and how to hang these feeders. One is never in the sun and the other is only during the morning so therefore that is not the problem. After much testing I found the nectar is leaking from the feeding spouts. For some reason it slowly keeps leaking thru these spouts no matter how tight or how low you fill the feeder. Very disappointed in losing $30. My aunt puts out approximately 50 feeders and holds several talk/gatherings a summer. I will be letting her know just how well Perky Pet feeders are now constructed. I'm sure she'll be sure to let the hundreds of people she talks to each summer know as well.Response From Safer Brand®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratenot happy about the leaking
I currently have four feeders up, three new wide mouth feeders and one old narrow mouth feeder. All three new feeders leak like crazy and the old one isn't leaking at all. I called Perky Pet and they were extremely nice and sent me one replacement feeder and it leaks. I really like the wide mouth because it makes cleaning much easier. I just am not happy about the leaking.Response From Safer Brand®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are very sorry to hear of this unusual experience. To help prevent this from occurring, we recommend keeping the feeders level and sheltered from the wind and direct sunlight. We also recommend keeping the feeder tightly assembled and quickly inverted upright after filling.

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 Safer Brand®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 Safer Brand®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 Safer Brand®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 Safer Brand®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 Safer Brand®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 Safer Brand®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.
