Type Of Feed
Whimsical, can be awkward
To fill, if you leave the feeders on the hanger, they do not sit flat on the table. I take the feeders off the hanger, fill each with the exact amount, put feeders back on wires-carefully so they don't spill. Takes time. When hanging it up, since the ring is round, not a hanger, if it is not balanced -one feeder has a little more food than the other, the pole it is hanging on tilts or the ground isn't level- food spills. It's pretty and interestingly different, but other feeders on this website are much easier to handle. When those hummers are hungry you better get that food to them fast or you'll hear about it!
Hi Catherine, Thank you for taking the time to offer your suggestions. We are always looking for ways to improve the birding experience for backyard birds and backyard birders, and the ideas and suggestions of innovative, thinking people are always welcome.
Nice hummingbird feeder
It is a nice size feeder. When filling it I had a little difficulty, you fill them then snap the lid on top, which was a little hard to open. Then you hang both containers on the wire holder. You definitely have to have two free hands to maneuver.
Very poor design
The red tops are difficult to twist on/ off and must be aligned with certain petals…the tops are very tight on the bottom and over time I can see the petals breaking off. The clear elastic bands are going to disintegrate quickly under the hot sun.
Hi Bill, We're sorry to hear you are having difficulties opening and closing the Ruby Sipper! 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. We hope this information helps!
Hummingbird Ruby Red Sipper
The feeder looks great, but in our area of the hummingbirds do not come back until the end of April beginning of May, so I will not be able to see how they like it until they come back to our area. Meanwhile we’ve got it hanging, but we haven’t put any food in it yet.

don't bother, it's poorly designed
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.
