FAQ

Birds at my feeder look sick, what should I do?

The best thing to do is to stop feeding the birds temporarily. Remove the feeders and throw out all of the seed. Thoroughly wash your feeders. Remove all debris from under your feeder. Do not touch the sick birds. Refill all of your feeders and resume feeding.

How do I prevent seeds from sprouting under my feeder?

You will need to sterilize your seed to prevent it from germinating. This will not alter the attractiveness or the nutritional value of the seed in any way.Here are two methods:Conventional Oven: Place the seed on a baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes at 300°F.Microwave Oven: Place seed in a paper bag. Cook on high power for 5 minutes.

Why does the seed in my feeder get moldy?

Mold is caused by a heavy rain, driving sleet or snow plugging the feeding ports and allowing water to dampen the seed. Always clean, dry and refill your feeders after heavy weather. You may also want to try placing 1/4" of cat litter in the bottom of the feeder to absorb excess moisture.

    Needs perches

    By Zennie on Jul 14, 2021

    I have tried 2 different foods for small birds. Will try finch food next. Small birds just land on metal pole that holds the feeder. Even put a small dowel through holes as a perch. Nothing, no birds landing on. They rather eat on the ground. I live in the lower south Sierras, so lots of different animals.

    Ball Bird Feeder

    By Peggy on May 21, 2021

    I have a total of 5. I love them, the squirrels can not get into them. So I am not going through near the bird seed as I was. And they are wire so the squirrels can't eat through them.

    Squirrel-Proof Feeder

    By Birds on Jun 20, 2021

    Love the ease of filling the feeder and the fact that the squirrels can't get in it but the birds aren't attracted to it.

    Great feeder

    By Woody on Jun 2, 2021

    The lid is tight enough im sure a squirrel couldn't open it. I've seen purple & yellow finches & woodpeckers on it. It's a yes for me.

    Nice squirrel proof little feeder

    By Kate on May 9, 2021

    I like this little round bird feeder. The squirrels cannot get into it but they do shake the seed out on the ground. My only criticism is that I wish it was larger!

    So far, so good...

    By Donna on Jan 23, 2021

    My previous bird feeder was providing way too much food for the squirrels. This one does a better job feeding my birds. It took them a few days to figure it out but they're now enjoying it just fine and I don't have to refill it every day. One major difference... any bird seed I bought worked in the old feeder. This one takes sunflower seeds exclusively... needing the larger seeds so they don't fall out thru the little holes. At last, a bird feeder for the birds!!!

    Perky-Pet Seed Ball Wild Bird Feeder

    By pyrmum on Apr 27, 2021

    I like the seed ball. It seems quite sturdy. I haven't filled it as yet because I don't have sunflower seeds. Need to purchase

    Great BUT does have a small issue!

    By edfirn on Feb 4, 2021

    This is a great feeder for use with sunflower seed but the only problem is that the squirrels that also like the seed are able to pop off the top that is a snap style fit. I have three of these and have been using them for over 5 years so what I do is run a piece of steel wire through the mesh from one side and over the top through the center top ring and over to the opposite side and the squirrels are not able to get the top off. Do not use anything but metal wire as the squirrels will be able to chew through anything else.
