Excellent construction but bad design
on 12 May 2013
These are quite sturdy seed feeders, but they have a serious flaw that has made me only use them with unshelled sunflower seed. The feeding ports are nice and sturdy, but they meet in the middle and it causes a clumping and mould problem with any sort of soft, shelled feed such as sunflower hearts. The ports allow rain in, which is not the problem, it's what happens to the wet seed afterwards.
It's almost impossible to clean them thoroughly, so they're relegated to sunflower seeds still in the shell as that seems to be the only thing that doesn't cause problems.
