Type Of Feed
Terrible. If the hummers don't drink from each side EVENLY, it will hang unevenly. And that means spillage. Terrible design and I'm asking for my money back.
Hi John, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Ruby Sipper Duo Red Hanging Hummingbird Feeder. We are sorry to hear that your experience with his feeder has not been satisfactory. The feeder should hang evenly and we are sorry that yours has not and you are experiencing leakage. You will want to make sure you are only filling the feeders halfway so the nectar does not spill out. You will also want to follow the instructions on how to assemble the feeder so it is assembled properly which should again help with any spillage. If you have decided to return the item, we understand. If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164. Thank you.
The little cups are extremely difficult to open. It says to line the tab on the bottom up to one of the upturned petals on the top, but neither part will budge so I can't do that. It's nearly impossible to get a decent grip on it because both pieces are so small and close together, and it just feels like it's going to break if I try any harder. I'm returning it immediately.
Hello Jill, Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. For whatever reason, sometimes the Ruby Sipper cover and dish compress in transit. After the initial separation of the cover and dish, you shouldn’t have any sort of issue going forward. Here’s a troubleshooting trick we use to help with this type of situation. First, locate the plastic tab, which is located on the lip of the dish under one of the red “petals” on the cover. If tab is under small upturned petal—Hold the sides of the dish in your hand using your fingertips, placing the side of your thumb between the perch and the plastic tab. Press inward and then push downward to open the cover. If for some reason that isn’t working, hold the dish of the feeder with one hand. With your other hand, use a Dime to wedge between the plastic tab on the dish and the upturned small red petal. Slowly twist the dime, and this should cause the cover to come off of the dish. If tab is under large downturned petal—Hold the dish of the feeder with one hand. With your other hand, use a Nickel to wedge between the plastic tab on the dish and the downturned large red petal. The Nickel should be able to reach so that it can be slightly wedged in between. Once the Nickel is wedged in between the large petal and the plastic tab, lightly push upward on the Nickel. This will create a type of jack that should cause the cover to detach from the dish. Please remember to put the cover back on the dish by lining up the plastic tab, on the lip of the dish, underneath one of the small upturned red petals. At Droll Yankees, there’s a special place in our hearts for people who feed the birds.
