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.

    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.

    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

    Seed ball Wild Bird Feeder

    By BirdBrain on Jan 29, 2021

    It took a while for the finches to feed on it as they prefer a platform (like the collapsable Chewy feeder) to stand on rather than cling to the mesh ball. The mesh on the lower 1.5 inches of the feeder is smaller and doesn't allow black oil sunflower seeds to release easily.

    Sturdy but holes could be bigger

    By AliS on Jan 10, 2021

    This seems to be well made and the squirrels haven't destroyed them like they have others of the type, but I'm also not seeing a lot of evidence of the birds managing to get seeds out. I've filled them and they're barely down an inch in two weeks. I hope it's just the birds needing time to get used to it.

    nice idea but...

    By Caprica on Feb 10, 2021

    When filling this up the small seeds fall right through and the larger seeds are difficult for the birds to get out. They still try but I don't think this was a very well thought out design.

    Only for Sunflower Seeds, Not Squirrel Proof!

    By Ashley on Feb 18, 2021

    I am using this but unfortunately lose quite a bit of seed since this specifically is for sunflower seeds. Additionally, squirrels were easily able to pop the top off.

    I bought this as a gift for my mother, it is not squirrel proof and the lid broke off; but she enjoyed it and asked me to buy her a second.

    Not bad....but not great FOR ME....

    By Sandy on Jan 3, 2021

    Using seed specific for "song birds/mid western birds" = small seed fall out and larger seeds the birds find difficult to extract.
