I bought two of these feeders and unfortunately one of them either had a broken hanger or I broke it removing it from the packaging and I am trying to find replacement parts. How, ever, the one that isn't broken in just great. I have five other feeders and they all have ants - this one doesn't. And my hummers love it. It is emply a couple of days before the others. I am going to get more if I can solve the hanger problem. It is a delicate little part and I can see this happening again. I highly recommend this product.

We started with a couple of these feeders and last year bought four more. The hummers come to them easily. The glass are much easier to keep clean than plastic feeders and they last long if taken care of properly. This year we have had over 8 hummers where a few years ago only 3 or 4. We are buying 4 more this year to have on hand! Thank YOU to whoever designed these feeders!!!
#1 Hummingbird Feeder August 06, 2011
Of all the hummingbird feeders I've purchased (15-20), this one is my favorite so far. The ant moat works well and is deep enough that the water doesn't dry out in one day (like other feeders with shallow moats). I like that the birds can perch while they eat. They seem to stay longer when they can perch. The glass nectar container holds up much better than the plastic ones I've purchased (which dent, become transluscent instead of clear, and can crack and leak). The feeding ports are simple and functional without the unnecessary plastic flowers or yellow screens, which eventually come off, break, or get lost. I'm buying three more! Two for me (to replace my remaining plastic ones) and one as a gift.
Hummers August 04, 2011
This is the only Hummingbird Feeder I have ever had that DOES NOT lea and I have had probably 6 different kinds. Forget the plastic ones, they are apparently cheaply made and if they don't leak at first, they eventually will. I highly recommend this Rose Petal Feeder!!!!!
Best feeder May 08, 2010
This is the best feeder I have. The top has an area to keep water in. That water keeps the ants from getting to the feeder. I wish they all had that ant block. Now if only they can make it a top fill too.

My brother-in-law has this feeder and he has bunches of hummingbirds. I like the fact that it has a built in ant moat. I have a Perkypet feeder and have ants & means I have to buy something to keep ants out. I received this feeder for Christmas & am very excited about using it.
Best Hummingird feeder I have bought in 20 years! September 16, 2009
This feeder holds up all summer in the southern heat because it is glass! It does not leak, and it is easy to fill ..and clean..
I photograph hummingbirds and it has perches so that they can sit to sip..while I take their photograph! It is the best feeder I have ever purchased and because of its price, I can afford to buy two of them each year.
I have owned the beautiful feeders that have the tube feeders out the bottom of the beautiful glass feeders but they have all leaked. This feeder does not leak anywhere and I really have enjoyed it enough to write a review on it.

Best hummingbird feeder by far! April 08, 2009
I'm located in Washington state. Of all the hummingbird feeders I have used, this feeder is the best by far! I even bought one for my neighbor, and she is an avid bird feeding enthusiast, and she says it's the best, she has bought quite a few herself. The hummingbirds perch and feed at leisure.
It was especially nice this winter when we had a stretch of sub-freezing temperatures for nearly three weeks, the perching capability of the feeders allowed the hummers to sit and feed allowing them to preserve their energy.
I think you will be very happy if you purchase this feeder!
Terrible April 15, 2012
I had one of these and a hummzinger mini and each time I would clean it it was a struggle to clean just this mornuing the peches and ant moat shattered upon further inspection there was black mold growing on the underside of the white bits. Do not buy anything perky pet they can't seem to mke good feeders

Sometimes hummingbird feeders can be difficult to clean, especially the bases. Here is a tip that you may find helpful in keeping your feeder clean. Take a handful of uncooked rice and add it to your feeder bottle with some water. Securely screw the base onto the bottle and shake vigorously. The uncooked rice will hit the difficult to corners, nooks and crannies of the bottle and the base in order to clean them out. Remove the uncooked rice/water mixture and rinse clean.

Got my order today and was so disappointed with these 2 feeders I ordered with nectar. Both plastic tops were broken and can't hang the feeders. Both nectar packets were slit and powder everywhere. What a mess. This will be my last order from this company. Poor quality and should have been looked at before sending out. The screws on the hangers were loose in the box and were stripped when I tried to screw them in the top ant mote plastic hanger. Wasted my time and my money. I was so upset in the trash they went as the shipping would cost too much to send back. You fooled me once. No more! Shame on you!
