More liquid leaks out than birds get. If the feeder is kept stock still l, it's OK, but with wind, etc. the flowers get fed.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
When wind is tilting a feeder to the point of leaking, we recommend moving it to a more sheltered location. This will help keep the nectar in the feeder, and hummingbirds often prefer to feed in calm environments.
Our feeders are covered by a 30-day return policy and a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

Review RateLeaking Hummingbird Feeders
We have been using your Pinch-Waist Glass Hummingbird Feeders for well over 30 years with great success. Recently, my neighbor and I each purchased Model# 203CPBN new, both of which leaked. The leaks occur where the "Flowers" join the "Stem". This is NOT the case with any of the other Feeders, some older than 30 years, all of which have much smaller "mouths" for filling and to which the "Flower" base attaches. Perhaps a bit of Super Glue during assembly will solve this defect.Response From Safer Brand®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this experience. Perky-Pet® is known for its long history of providing high-quality products. We regret that you received something not meeting this standard. When the bottle is attached to the base of this feeder, it should not leak in this manner.
For best results, we recommend hanging the feeders in a shady location that is sheltered from the wind. Our feeders are backed by a 30 day return policy and covered under a one year warranty. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review RateBest Hummingbird Feeder
Very good quality. Attracts birds very quickly.
Review RateAll ports & flat flowers on the larger feeders LEAK, LEAK, LEAK since new design!
It seems Perky Pet doesn't want to admit the new design with the larger mouth is a leaker! I, too, have used Perky Pet's glass bottle hummer feeder for years but ever since the new larger mouth came out, I have bees at all my feeders due to leaks! All 8 feeders I bought, leak! I agree it may be the smaller mouth of the bottle that creates a better vaccum so it doesn't leak. Unfortunately, customer service couldn't do much other than replace w/ 3 (same model) or nothing at all. I hate to buy from other companies after all these years using Perky Pet products but I have no choice! Very disappointed they changed to the larger mouth & are continuing to keep it! Will have to change to another product.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNew Wide Mouth Design Terrible
The change in design to the wide-mouth bottle is terrible! I've used the "old-school" Perky Pet Pinch Waist feeders for 15 years - the ones with the plastic insert and narrow mouth - and they never leaked. The new models do not create a sufficient vacuum, drain on their own, and attract countless bees. Horrible - Perky Pet, READ THESE REVIEWS, you need to go back to the original design or lose your customer base.Response From Safer Brand®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. We apologize for the experience and will pass along these comments to our Product Manager for review.

Review RateI LOVE THIS FEEDER
I replaced the old style of this feeder for this updated style and I'm so glad I did! Others have complained that it leaks, but I found that if I very carefully screwed the perch to the jar the leaking stopped. The wider opening allows for cleaning with a regular bottle brush (the old style had a narrow neck and was difficult to clean) and the bee guards that open for cleaning are great. I like the size of this feeder because the birds eat the nectar so quickly it makes sure I am cleaning them every few days, which prevents the mold that is harmful to the hummers.
Review RateWorks but issues with other birds using
Just purchased and seems to attract hummingbirds and every other bird. Biggest problem is woodpeckers getting on it more than hummingbirds. Removed the perch part but still hang from the flowers. Need a feeder with only a feeder tube so only the hummingbirds can use it.
Review RateLEAKS CONSTANTLY! -Pet 203CPBN Pinch Waist Glass Hummingbird Feeder
Purchased two of these wide mouth models, and they leak constantly. Used the previous small fill hole model since 1995, and never had a single leak. Only replaced the old ones because the plastic was old, dried out and cracked in a couple of places after many years of use. This new, improved model sucks. Talked with Perky Pet and they will only replace them for the exact same "unimproved" model, or with a "cheaper" model. Never thought in all these years that I would have to start considering another manufacturer's feeders.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience, Jack, and appreciate the feedback.
Typically, if a feeder is not performing as expected, we will provide a replacement of the same model under the warranty. We do see in our documentation that an offer was made for a different model of equal or lesser value and regret any confusion. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review RateBee guards don't work
I have two and the bee guards do not keep bees from draining the feeders. I called Perky Pets and their solution was to send me more bee guards of the same type, which would not have solved the problemResponse From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
The bee guards will prevent bees from reaching the nectar. However, if there is a leak around a feeding port, they would be able to reach that. When the bottle is tightly secured to the base, and the feeder is turned upright quickly to create a vacuum, it should not leak. Placing the feeder in direct sunlight or in a windy location can also cause leaking.
Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) so we can make this right.
