Review RatePerfect Feeders
I had bought one of these with our local dealer, but he was out when I went back to get another. I like them because they keep ALL bugs out of the nectar. I clean them frequently during the season, and the bug guards make it so much easier and not such an icky job. Thank you!
Review RateBuy Now - enjoy for ever...
At 74 yrs., hummers are one of my best friends.. est 30 - 40 in or near my yard so taking care of them with glass pinch waist feeders seems to keep them happy. GLASS ONLY - they do not like plastic, custom made food and nice trees to hide in... Perky Pets products are great- they and of course the hummers entertain kids walking past our home on their way to school and home again. The PP products give us better than HBO entertainment right outside the window.
Review RateBest feeder out there.
Let me say, "Ilove, love love it." purchased two and have not experienced the leaking problem that I read about from other customers. The glass pinchwaist is the best feeder out there. We have been feeding hummers for over 40 years and this is their favorite. We leave the flowers off the feeding ports and just use the bee guards. We have six of these in our front yard and he hummers love them. We've tried just about every feeder out there and these are the best!!!!
Review RateBad Design
This feeder used to be the best feeder you could find. When you went to the wide mouth bottle, it constantly leaks. I've had 3 different wide mouth feeders they all leak and make a mess. Go back to the old design.Response From Safer Brand®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot to good the bears up here also like the liquid that dripped out
I had a problem with feeder leaking from small screw under neither feeder I had 2 they both leaked more bee,s than hummingbirds.Response From Safer Brand®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. The base and the bottle should be assembled tightly to form a vacuum seal. We also recommend keeping the feeder out of the direct sunlight and keeping it level.

Review Rateto leak or not to leak
just bought 4 more of the 8oz feeders; really like them and so do my hummers! a couple of them do leak, but not by much. can I make the solution a little stronger, now that it's getting into fall?
Review RateLeaks. Bring back old style!
The new wide-mouthed feeders leak. Over the course of a day or two, there's nothing but a puddle left on the ground. I used it for one season and threw it away. I've used the old style feeders since 1991 without a single one leaking out of 5 different feeders. My grandparents/parents used the feeders for 50 years. No leaks. New style is also inelegant and cheap-looking. This was an amazing product that worked very well for decades. Taking a bit of stiff wire and a cut up sponge to create a mop for cleaning the old style was pretty easy compared to a feeder that leaks all the nectar.Response From Safer Brand®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team directly at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973). We would like to learn more and provide some assistance.
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.
